Ryanair has revealed plans to commence operations at Norwich Airport during the upcoming summer season.
The airline will introduce three new routes to popular summer destinations – Alicante, Faro, and Malta – starting from April 1, 2024. This marks a significant milestone as Norwich becomes the 22nd UK airport served by Ryanair, providing enhanced travel options, competitive fares, and improved connectivity for customers in Norwich and the broader Norfolk region.
Ryanair’s Head of Communication, Jade Kirwan, said: ‘As the UK’s No.1 airline, we are delighted to announce that Ryanair’s low fares have finally arrived in Norwich. From 1st April 2024, we will operate 3 exciting new Summer sunshine routes to/from Norwich – Alicante, Faro, and Malta. Our new Norwich operation will not only bring competitive fares and a wider selection of Summer routes to our customers in Norwich and the wider Norfolk region, but will support important regional development through increased connectivity, inbound tourism, and local job creation.
We have worked productively with our new partners at Norwich Airport to agree terms which enable Ryanair to deliver this growth and investment for the region, and we look forward to further developing our partnership with Norwich Airport and welcoming Norfolk customers/visitors onboard our Ryanair flights to/from Norwich as we continue to grow to 300 million p.a. by 2034.’
Richard Pace, Managing Director of Norwich Airport, said: ‘This is fantastic news for passengers and the first time that Ryanair has flown from Norwich Airport. Alicante, Faro and Malta are hugely popular destinations and with twice-weekly flights it means we can offer passengers even more great choice from their local airport. We’re delighted to be increasing connectivity for local communities and look forward to growing our partnership with Ryanair.’
