Ryanair Statement

Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary, stated: “Ryanair is pleased to bring even more choice to London citizens and visitors for Summer ‘23.”

“Our schedule has grown 10% on last Summer, with 3,000 weekly flights scheduled across 180+ routes, incl. 6 new sunshine destinations and increased frequencies on 30+ other popular routes like Berlin, Malaga, Mallorca, Nantes and Palma.”

“While the halving of APD on domestic flights from Apr ‘23 has allowed Ryanair to add more domestic routes to our UK schedule for Summer ’23 – incl. London Stansted to Belfast, Cornwall and Edinburgh,”

“If we are to continue to grow and drive traffic/tourism recovery for the UK, Prime Minister Sunak should immediately scrap APD for all travel and provide incentives for airlines like Ryanair to stimulate growth and recovery for the UK, including London.”

Expansion from Cork – Biggest ever schedule

As previously made known, Ryanair has been hard at work in announcing new routes and even greater expansions out of scheduled Summer bases for the 2023 season. Some time back, Ryanair announced their biggest ever schedule out of Cork airport for the season.

As part of that announcement, Ryanair will base three aircraft at Cork, to serve 270 flights per week across 29 routes, including new services to Italy, Spain and the UK, marking an increase of 20% in capacity growth.

Ryanair’s biggest-ever Cork schedule will provide its southern customers with recession-busting fares across an extensive selection of sunny holiday destinations and European city break destinations next summer.

Moreover, it will continue to promote important regional development, through Ryanair’s support of over 1,300 local jobs and delivery of even greater connectivity for local businesses and European holidaymakers.

  • Alicante – Increase to 4 times weekly
