Ryanair has announced new routes for summer 2021, including from Teesside to Faro and from Manchester to Verona.
With the Teesside to Faro route operating twice weekly from 16 June and the Manchester to Verona route operating twice weekly from July, the airline is adding new routes preparing for a busy summer.
Ryanair’s director of commercial, Jason McGuinness, said: “As vaccination rollout programmes continue in the coming months and with the summer season just around the corner, we are delighted to announce this new route from Manchester to Verona, operating twice weekly from July as part of our UK summer’21 schedule.
“Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, customers can now book flights for a well-deserved 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 October 2021.
“To celebrate, we are launching 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, 20 May. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.”
The airline said that the route from Teesside adds to the schedule with routes already to Alicante, Faro and Palma de Mallorca from June, and to Corfu from July.
With quarantine-free travel now permitted to Portugal, even more flights have been added to its UK schedule in order to meet the demand from customers.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen added: “This is fantastic news, and yet another vote of confidence in our airport. Of course, it has only been made possible because of the tremendous take-up of Ryanair’s flights to Alicante and Palma by local people.
“Passengers are showing they’re backing our airport and Ryanair is paying back their commitment in spades. Even before the first flight has taken off, Ryanair has listened to what people have been crying out for and doubled its routes to give them a much-needed break.
“We’ve been working hard over the past few months to transform our terminal, get it fit for the 21st century and make it easier and smoother than ever to pass through. We can’t wait to welcome people back through our doors for these great summer breaks – and our growing slate of other domestic and international flights.”
