Ryanair continues to announce its 2023/24 winter flying schedule, which now includes expansion from two important UK locations.
Manchester Winter Expansion
Ryanair will grow its Manchester operation this winter with 64 routes, including five new routes slated to launch.
Belfast, Plodiv, Tirana, Venice, and Warsaw will all debut from Manchester in the coming months.
Away from new routes, Ryanair further notes that on another 20 connections, there’ll be increased frequencies. The likes of Alicante, Faro, Paris and Tenerife will see jumps to reflect growing demand.
16 aircraft will be based in Manchester, equal to a USD 1.6 billion investment and what’ll support 5,800 local jobs. 8 of the 16 are from the 737 MAX series, which Ryanair labels as “game-changers.”
