Ryanair’s massive winter schedule
In early June, Ryanair revealed their massive winter program, ranging from multiple Irish airports, and in a later announcement, a massive winter expansion from their Newcastle (NCL) base as well. In addition to the carrier’s previous 170 routes, they are adding another seven routes from Irish gateways – these being:
From Dublin (DUB)
- Castellón-Costa Azahar (CDT), Spain

- Venice Marco Polo (VCE), Italy
From Cork (ORK)
- Newcastle Int’l Airport (NCL)
The Ryanair Winter Program will operate across 90 bases with over 2,500 routes to 36 European countries. In addition to the massive Irish expansion, Ryanair has announced yet another expansion in the winter schedule, this one being record setting.
With 2 Newcastle (NCL) based aircraft, 15 destinations and over 80 weekly flights, Ryanair is setting records on the expansion from Newcastle. New destinations from Newcastle in the Winter 22/23 program include destinations to holiday locations as:
- Barcelona El-Prat (BCN)

However, the winter expansion will also see multiple routes to European cities, like:
- Krakow (KRK)
- Milano Bergamo (BGY)

Since these destinations were announced, Ryanair has also announced a summer network from Shannon, Ireland. AviationSource covered this in an earlier article which can be found here.
New route announcements seem to be coming in with short space inbetween these days when it comes to Ryanair. However, it is not that surprising given their position and demand in the aviation market.
Their fleet size, subsidiaries included, also compliments nicely to these new additions in the route network, and Ryanair don’t seem to stop any time soon.
