Ryanair, the Ireland-based low-cost airline, has announced its largest ever Summer schedule from its three London airports – Gatwick, Luton, and Stansted – with 14 new routes (181 total) to holiday destinations across Europe, including Naples, Madeira, and Stockholm.

As Covid travel restrictions have now been lifted, UK holidaymakers can now book the much needed Summer break benefiting to a wide choice of destinations, including the beaches of Spain, Portugal and Italy. The 14 new Summer 2022 routes from London airports include Burgas, Naples, Catania, Orebro, Helsinki, Stockholm, Lublin, Tampere, Maastricht, Tangier, Madeira, Trapani, Menorca and Vaxjo.

Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said: ‘We are pleased to announce 14 new routes from our three London airports, Stansted, Luton and Gatwick, as all Covid-19 travel restrictions have now been lifted, UK citizens and visitors can book a well-deserved Summer getaway to exciting destinations such as Helsinki, Madeira and Naples. Ryanair is driving London’s post Covid recovery as we grow across Europe, with new aircraft and new routes.

Despite launching our biggest ever schedule, the UK Govt failed to support this recovery by delaying the reduction in APD until 2023. Ryanair again calls on the UK Govt to scrap APD completely, to allow airlines and airports to quickly restore traffic, jobs, and tourism. The 50% reduction proposed for 2023 is too little, too late as APD puts UK airports at a severe cost disadvantage versus European competitors, and the absence of Govt support for aviation and tourism recovery creates further barriers to UK traffic and growth.’

O’Leary added, ‘To allow our customers and visitors to/from London to book their Summer getaway at the lowest fares, we are launching a 3-day seat sale with fares available from just £19,99 one way for travel until October 2022, which must be booked by Friday the 4th of March. Since these super low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.’

A city seeped in history and culture, Grenoble tops the list with avid skiers year after year. Its proximity to the Alps, big resorts and traditional villages that cater for all levels and styles of ski trips makes it an ideal ski destination. Meanwhile, Salzburg boasts some of Europe’s most picturesque alpine scenery and people flock to this cultural capital year after year for its beautiful slopes and apres ski alike. Another prominent location is Turin, considered the gateway to the Italian Alps with over 600km of slopes, which offers amazing snow conditions throughout the season. Its laid-back Italian style appeals to many and is a more chilled out ski experience compared to the French Alps.

Ryanair’s Director of Marketing, Dara Brady, said: ‘As Europe’s No.1 airline, we are delighted to announce our winter 2021/22 ski schedule with fares starting at just £29.99.

Our customers can now book a Summer getaway to the likes of Alicante, Chania, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rome, Tenerife and many more on amazing low fares.

While Ryanair welcomes the UK Govt’s decision to reduce domestic APD from Summer 2023, it is neither sufficient nor timely enough to kickstart the UK’s tourism recovery, particularly for Summer 2022. Unfortunately, this delay will only damage the airline industry’s ability to rapidly rebuild connectivity, jobs and tourism.

Ryanair calls on the UK Govt to immediately abolish APD for all travel, which would give both tourism and domestic UK connectivity a much-needed boost for this Winter and next Summer.’

Ryanair has also launched a Winter Sun seat sale, with over 530 routes to choose from across the Ryanair network. With over 80,000 seats available, British travellers and can choose from a range of winter sun destinations including Faro, Lanzarote, Malaga and Tenerife this November and December, for fares from £9.99.
