Commencing from April 28, 2024, Ryanair will commence services between Manchester Airport (MAN) and Reggio Calabria Airport (REG).

The flight will be operated twice per week on Wednesdays and Sundays. This will be using likely a mix of Boeing 737-800s and Boeing 737 MAX 8 200s.

The carrier’s Boeing 737-800s have a configuration of 189 seats. And their MAX 8 200s have a configuration of 197 seats. Ryanair currently operates a fleet of 410 Boeing 737-800s, 147 Boeing 737 MAX 8 200s, and 27 Airbus A320s.

With the opening of this new route, it will be the UK’s first and only direct service to Reggio Calabria.

It is also one of three new routes that the low-cost carrier is adding to its Manchester schedule this summer. Sitting alongside Dubrovnik in Croatia and Tangier in Morocco.

Commenting on the new route to Italy, Manchester Airport’s Chief Commercial Officer, Stephen Turner, says, “We are proud to connect people in the North with an outstanding range of destinations, with over 200 routes served by more than 50 airlines. Ryanair’s new service to Reggio Calabria is an exciting one because it’s a brand-new destination for us.”
