LONDON – On June 7, the Irish-based LCC (low-cost carrier), Ryanair, announced, what is yet again its biggest Irish winter schedule for the upcoming season that starts at the end of the year.

Their New Winter Schedule…

As part of their biggest ever offering during the upcoming winter season, including the previous season’s 170 routes, Ryanair is adding an additional seven new routes, for a total of 177 different destinations that customers can choose from during this winter season from any of their five Irish gateways.

Their five Irish airport gateways are Cork Airport (ORK), Dublin Airport (DUB), Kerry Airport (KIR), Ireland West Airport Knock (NOC), and Shannon Airport (SNN).

The seven new routes that Ryanair will be adding are as follows –

  • From Cork Airport (ORK)
    • Newcastle International Airport (NCL), United Kingdom – This will be a twice-weekly service.
  • From Dublin Airport (DUB) – The airline’s home base.
    • Castellón–Costa Azahar Airport (CDT), Spain – This will be a twice-weekly service.
    • Genoa Christopher Columbus Airport (GOA), Italy – This will be a twice-weekly service.
    • Klagenfurt Airport (KLU), Austria – This will be a twice-weekly service.
    • Rome Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci International Airport (FCO), Italy – This will be a 12 times per week service.
    • Rovaniemi Airport (RVN), Finland – This will be a three times per week service.
    • Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE), Italy – This will be a daily service.

Within Ryanair’s network this winter, they will have 90 different bases with over 2,500 routes operating to 36 different European countries for this upcoming winter season.

On top of this, with a growing fleet of new Boeing 737 MAX 8-200 aircraft and new jobs constantly being created, Ryanair is set for a very well-rounded winter season.

This is all even still despite the effects that the heightened fuel prices and travel disruption that the war between Ukraine and Russia is still causing to the industry.

At present, the Ryanair Holdings Group operates a total of 510 aircraft across five divisions. Those five divisions are, Ryanair, Ryanair UK, Buzz, Malta Air, and Lauda Europe.

However, only one division operates Airbus A320 aircraft rather than the Boeing 737’s that most are used to seeing from Ryanair, and that division is Lauda Europe. They currently have 29 Airbus A320 aircraft in their fleet.

The rest of Ryanair’s divisions operate a mixture of Boeing 737 NGs (Next Generation) and Boeing 737 MAX 8 200 aircraft.

This is broken down as eight Boeing 737-800 NGs for Ryanair UK, one Boeing 737-700 NG, 235 Boeing 737-800 NGs and 32 Boeing 737 MAX 8 200’s for their main Ryanair division, 120 Boeing 737-800 NGs, and 26 Boeing 737 MAX 8 200’s for Malta Air, and finally 46 Boeing 737-800 NG’s and 13 Boeing 737 MAX 8 200’s for Buzz.

The Group still has a total of 139 Boeing 737 MAX 8 200s on order from Boeing, and the deliveries will be split across the Group’s divisions.

Commenting on their new route announcement, Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, has said, “As Europe’s No.1 airline, Ryanair is delighted to announce our Winter ’22/23 schedule for Ireland with 174 routes to popular destinations across Europe, including new routes to/from Rome, Venice, and Newcastle.”

“Although this schedule offers plenty of choices, demand is growing swiftly, so customers should book their Winter ’22/23 getaways early to ensure the lowest possible fares.”


All in all, we are expecting Ryanair to grow some of their other route offerings from some of their other bases throughout Europe, and with the incoming new Boeing 737 MAX 8-200 aircraft across their subsidiaries, Ryanair is still due for yet some more exponential growth throughout their network.

It will be interesting to see what other announcements they have due for the upcoming winter season.
