Ryanair announced 3 new Edinburgh routes to Faro, Marrakesh and Paris


Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, announced today (10th Feb 10) that it will open 3 new routes (38 in total) from Edinburgh to Faro, Marrakesh and Paris from May 2010 which will grow Ryanair’s annual traffic at Edinburgh to 2.5m passengers, sustaining 2,500 local jobs (including 300 Ryanair pilots and cabin crew).



Ryanair will also increase frequencies from Edinburgh to Alicante, Barcelona, Dublin, Frankfurt, Malaga, Malta, Marseille, Munich West, Palma, Stockholm and Tenerife from May. Ryanair will base a sixth aircraft at Edinburgh from May.


Ryanair celebrated these 3 new Edinburgh routes by extending its 1 million £5 seat sale until midnight Thursday (11th Feb), for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in March. Ryanair’s new routes go on sale on tomorrow.


Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:

“Ryanair is delighted to announce 3 new routes from Edinburgh to Faro, Marrakesh and Paris and increased frequencies on 11 existing routes to provide Scottish consumers/visitors with even more low fares to 38 exciting destinations from Edinburgh this summer. Ryanair’s 2.5m Edinburgh passengers will sustain 2,500 local jobs. To celebrate these new aircraft and routes Ryanair is extending its 1m £5 seat sale, for travel across Europe in March, until midnight Thursday. Since seats at these crazy low prices will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on”.
