Ryanair has launched its new base at Venice Treviso, which will open on the 30 March 2021, with two aircraft and 45 routes connecting Venice Treviso both domestically and internationally to over 20 countries across Europe
The company says that it will deliver increased connectivity with the Veneto region across its three airports of Venice Marco Polo, Verona and Venice Treviso, with 60 routes in total, that will deliver over 3m customers p.a. and support over 2,000 jobs, a $200m investment in total.
Ryanair’s CEO, Eddie Wilson said: “We are delighted to launch our 15th Italian base which represents a $200 million investment at Ryanair’s Venice Treviso Airport.
“We have a strong affiliation to Venice Treviso, since Ryanair’s first ever flight to Italy in 1998 was from London Stansted to Venice Treviso. Italy is one of Ryanair’s biggest markets and we want to continue to support the economic recovery as well as regional & international connectivity across the country.
“We are delighted to conclude this long-term investment with SAVE Group in developing connections to the Veneto Region based on efficient operations and competitive airport charges, paving the way for traffic growth and new routes at Ryanair’s 15th Italian base.
“With the recent encouraging news that vaccines will soon be available, we are pleased to continue delivering growth to the region despite the current challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic but we need to start now on the road to recovery.”
