Prestwick Airport receives new routes

Prestwick Airport is to receive new flights to Tenerife, Malaga and Faro as part of the biggest expansion in budget airline Ryanair’s history.

The huge expansion is taking place all across the UK and Europe, with 12 new flights from the UK and 40 new routes across the continent expected to be up and running by the time winter sets in.

The new additions mean that Ryanair will now run 29 routes out of Prestwick Airport. This also includes a new additional flight to Belfast every day, adding to the one that already departs daily from the airport.

Mark Rodwell, chief executive of Prestick Airport, said that the new routes to Spain and Portugal demonstrate “Ryanair’s commitment to expand and offer the best choice of European routes from Glasgow Prestwick Airport”.

He also said that the new destinations had “always been popular among Scots” and that the low fares offered by Ryanair will make them doubly attractive for holidaymakers.

Ryanair has been offering special £10 seats throughout June and July to celebrate their expansion of new routes, although the flights from Prestwick will not be available until the end of October.
