Ryanair has launched operations from Norwich, operating flights to the following destinations:

  • Alicante
  • Faro
  • Malta

In total, 12 flights per week will be operated from Norwich to the three destinations, in a boost for the airport.

Furthermore, it is understood that around 60,000 passengers will take advantage of these flights from the airport.

Adding to this further was Richard Pace, the Managing Director of the airport:

“We have been looking forward to this important day for the airport and our customers and we are delighted to now be celebrating the start of Ryanair’s first services from Norwich Airport.”

“The twice-weekly flights to Alicante, Faro and Malta are good news for connectivity for the region and offer increased choice for passengers from their local airport.”

“Our operational preparations, including training for new staff, have gone well and we are now looking forward to a busy summer, welcoming passengers taking advantage of the new services on offer to these ever-popular sunshine destinations.”

Continued Growth in the UK & Beyond…

Beyond Norwich, Ryanair has been growing once again within Europe.

Around two weeks ago, the airline announced new flights to Kosice & celebrating 500,000 passengers handled.

And just recently, the airline announced a record Summer schedule for flights out of Cluj-Napoca.

The S24 program features five exciting new routes from Cluj-Napoca: Brussels, Dublin, London, Milan, and Paris. This expansion will significantly increase passenger traffic.

In conclusion, Ryanair has achieved another milestone in growth, with the recent example being at Norwich.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how these new flights perform over the Summer 2024 season.

If demand is strong, then there could be cause to expand flights out of the base, which is what the airport would want.

But for now, let’s see what performance looks like over this busy period of the year.
