Ryanair launches new Newcastle – Paphos route for Winter 23/24

Ryanair, the European budget airline, has launched its Winter 23/24 schedule for Newcastle with 12 routes, including a new Winter sun route to Paphos, and extra flights to Alicante and Tenerife, offering customers more route choice when booking their Winter breaks.

Ryanair’s Winter 23/24 Newcastle schedule delivers:

* New Paphos route

* 12 routes – including Alicante, Faro, Gran Canaria, Krakow, Malaga and Tenerife.

* Extra flights on 2 routes – Alicante (4x per week) & Tenerife (3x per week).

To support this growth, Ryanair will base two aircraft at Newcastle Airport during the Winter 23/24 season. To celebrate Ryanair’s new Newcastle – Paphos route this Winter, Ryanair has launched a 2-day seat sale with fares from GBP29.99 available only at Ryanair.com.

Ryanair is one of UK’s leading airlines operating over 440 routes and carrying over 52m passengers per annum to and from the UK on its fleet of 107 UK-based aircraft.

Ryanair’s Dara Brady said: ‘Ryanair is pleased to provide even more choice and lower fares to our Newcastle customers for Winter 23/24 with 12 routes, including a new route to Paphos, and even more flights on 2 very popular Winter sun routes – Alicante and Tenerife. To support this growth, we will base 2 based aircraft at Newcastle Airport during Winter 23/24.’

He added, commenting on NATS, ‘Ryanair is the UK’s No.1 airline, and while we continue to grow and provide unbeatable route choice and low fares to our 52m p.a. UK customers, NATS are busy writing ‘whitewash’ reports to cover up their inexplicable incompetence which led to the cancellation of over 2,000 flights (over 360,000 passengers) and long delays to more than 5,000 flights (900,000 passengers) on Mon 28/Tues 29 Aug last.’

‘Ryanair calls on Transport Minister, Mark Harper, and the UK Govt to urgently reform ATC and guarantee UK passengers that they will not suffer any more disruptions as a result of repeated NATS failures, mismanagement & incompetence.’
