RyanAir launches 6 new London routes this Summer

Ryanair, the UK’s No. 1 airline for low fares and reliability, has announced its new Summer’23 schedule for London – operating over 180 routes from London Stansted, Gatwick and Luton airports – including 6 new routes to Asturias, Belfast, Cornwall, Edinburgh, Klagenfurt and Leipzig.

Ryanair’s London’23 schedule will deliver:

– 57 based aircraft (incl. 14 “Gamechangers”)

– $5.7bn investment in London & SES tourism

– 180+ routes incl. 6 new – Asturias, Belfast, Cornwall, Edinburgh, Klagenfurt and Leipzig

– 3,000 weekly flights (+10 per cent vs S22)

– Increased frequencies on 30+ sunshine routes, incl. Malaga, Nantes and Mallorca

– Over 1,600 direct jobs

In Summer ‘23, Ryanair will operate over 3,000 weekly flights to/from Stansted, Gatwick and Luton Airports with 10 per cent growth vs Summer ‘22, giving London customers/visitors unbeatable choice at the lowest fares when booking their much-deserved Summer ‘23 holidays. This growth is underpinned by Ryanair’s $5.7bn investment in London, with 57 based aircraft, supporting over 1,600 direct crew and engineering jobs.

On top of these new sunshine holiday destination for Summer ‘23, Ryanair has responded to the UK Govt’s 50 per cent APD cut for domestic travel from April ’23 with the opening of new domestic routes to/from London, incl. Belfast, Cornwall and Edinburgh. However, this 50 per cent reduction ignores international connectivity which is fundamental for the growth of the UK’s economy and tourism. Ryanair calls again on the UK Govt to fully abolish APD for all travel immediately, which would not only promote tourism, but support much needed connectivity to the UK – an island-based economy on the edge of Europe.

In London, Ryanair CEO, Michael O’Leary said: “Ryanair is pleased to bring even more choice to London citizens and visitors for Summer ‘23. Our schedule has grown 10 per cent on last Summer, with 3,000 weekly flights scheduled across 180+ routes, incl. 6 new sunshine destinations and increased frequencies on 30+ other popular routes like Berlin, Malaga, Mallorca, Nantes and Palma.

While the halving of APD on domestic flights from Apr ‘23 has allowed Ryanair to add more domestic routes to our UK schedule for Summer ’23 – incl. London Stansted to Belfast, Cornwall and Edinburgh – if we are to continue to grow and drive traffic/tourism recovery for the UK, Prime Minister Sunak should immediately scrap APD for all travel and provide incentives for airlines like Ryanair to stimulate growth and recovery for the UK, incl. London.

To celebrate Ryanair’s new London routes for Summer ‘23, we are launching a special seat sale with fares from just £29.99 for travel between Apr and Oct ‘23, which must be booked by midnight 19 Jan on Ryanair.com.”
