Ryanair today extended its Aberdeen summer 2017 schedule with a new route to Faro, in addition to its 2 new routes to Alicante and Malaga already announced.
Aberdeen International Airport Managing Director, Carol Benzie, said:
“We’re delighted to announce another fantastic new route with Ryanair, following the earlier news that they will return to Aberdeen in February with routes to Alicante and Malaga. As the main point of entry to southern Portugal and the stunning Algarve region, Faro has long been a popular destination with holidaymakers in Aberdeen.
The results of a leisure survey that we undertook earlier this year suggested that our local community would like to see the introduction of year-round flights to Faro. We listened to the feedback and have worked closely with Ryanair to respond to the demand. The twice-weekly service will begin in May 2017 and the arrival of 75,000 new customers per year to the airport will tie in with the exciting £20million revamp of our main terminal.”
