With eight new routes on the schedule for next year, taking the Irish low cost airline’s Faro summer route portfolio to 32 destinations and increasing its potential to carry 2.4 million passengers a year, Ryanair is looking forward to a bumper peak season in 2017.

Ryanair looks forward to record year at Faro

The airline recently announced eight new direct flights that will be operating from Faro during the coming summer, these being to Aberdeen, Cardiff, Hamburg, London, Marseille, Newcastle, Newquay (Cornwall) and Warsaw.
Ryanair estimates this will allow them to up their passenger figures from Faro to 2.4 million customers per year and contribute towards creating 1,800 direct and indirect jobs at the airport.
Altogether it equals a growth of 19 percent for the company in the Algarve by 2017.
The low cost carrier will also be boosting flights between various destinations, including Birmingham, Brussels and Leeds Bradford, which the airline says will be at “even lower prices due to the drop in the price of fuel” and “improvements to customer service.”
Speaking at a conference in Lisbon last week, Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said: “As our latest report confirms, Ryanair expects to lower its prices by 10% to 12% in the next six months, to March 2017.”
