Ryanair has announced it'll expand its London operations this summer significantly with new routes and aircraft to be based across airports.

Ryanair has revealed plans to launch its biggest-ever Summer 2024 schedule from London, with three airports seeing 200 total routes.

Big Changes Coming

Ryanair says it’ll launch seven new routes, bringing the total to 200, including Basel, Dubrovnik, Palma, Sarajevo, Tatry, Tirana and Treviso.

Meanwhile, two new Boeing 737s will be based in London, bringing the total to 56, another USD 200 million investment.

The three airports slated to be of focus are London Stansted, London Gatwick, and London Luton.

Ryanair adds that this latest announcement will create another 150 high-paid jobs ranging from pilots to cabin crew and engineers.

UK Passengers Being Scammed

Ryanair says that OTA Pirates are scamming passengers within the United Kingdom. These include the likes of eDreams, Kiwi and Opodo. These companies unlawfully scrape Ryanair’s website and utilise printed data to dupe consumers by overcharging flights essentially.

As part of these overcharges, there are hidden markups and invented non-existent service fees described by the leading airline. Fake customer contact and payment details are all also included.

Ryanair says it’s calling on the UK Government to outlaw this privacy and abuse to consumers once more, this follows repeated attempts that have no resulted in anything occurring.

Comments From CEO

Ryanair is pleased to announce 2 new aircraft ($200m) and 7 new routes for London in S24 (Basel, Dubrovnik, Palma, Sarajevo, Tatry, Tirana, and Treviso), and the creation of 150 high paid aviation jobs. Ryanair’s new London schedule, including these 7 exciting new Ryanair routes, is available to book now at ryanair.com, with a limited-time seat sale starting from just £19.99

More Problems In The UK

Ryanair didn’t ultimately hold back in its release, aiming at the UK NATS ATC and their continued inefficient “shambles” of an operation threatening travel planes.

Additionally, a focus was placed on the negative impact on growth within the United Kingdom, with failures occurring in June, August and December of 2023. These failures resulted in cancellations paired with delays for what ended up being millions of passengers.

Ryanair goes as far as saying that it’s time for the overpaid CEO, Martin Rolfe, to be let go. Following the departure, the carrier says there needs to be someone more competent in the role. As a result, the UK will be able to continue growing long into the future.
