Ryanair to bring Italian tourists to Spain as it doubles its presence in Rome Fiumicino this summer with three more aircraft, 21 routes, six of them new, and over 65 extra weekly flights.
RYANAIR, Italy’s number one airline, has announced the addition of three based aircraft, six new routes and over 65 flights every week from Rome Fiumicino to a host of domestic and international destinations. This represents a further investment of €246 million, which will deliver increased connectivity to the region, playing a key role in the recovery of jobs and the local economy.
Destinations include Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga.
“Ryanair remains committed to delivering connectivity to Rome and expects its Summer 2021 schedule, including 78 routes from both Rome airports in total and over 470 departing flights per week, will help boost air traffic in the city and the region, contributing to the recovery of the tourism industry as vaccination programmes continue and Europe re-opens in time for the peak holiday season,” the company said on June 8.
Italian consumers and tourists can now plan a getaway on even lower fares and with the option to avail of Ryanair’s zero change fee should plans change. To celebrate, Ryanair has launched a seat sale with fares available from just €19.99 for travel until the end of October 2021, which must be booked by midnight Thursday June 10 on the Ryanair.com website.
Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said, “We are delighted to confirm our commitment to Rome and the region, with 78 routes in total from both airports – Fiumicino and Ciampino – including 11 new routes to an array of summer hotspots. In particular, we are pleased to announce three additional based aircraft in Rome Fiumicino, along with six new routes and over 65 extra departing flights every week this summer, doubling our presence at the airport. This expansion will deliver increased connectivity to the region and support the recovery of local jobs and businesses.
“Our Italian customers have now a host of domestic and international destinations to choose from this summer, with connections to the likes of Barcelona, Catania, Palermo, Malta and many others,” he added.
Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, customers can now book flights for a break knowing that if they need to postpone or change their travel dates, they can do so up to two times with a zero-change fee until the end of December 2021.
