Ryanair Announces Winter 2021/22 Schedule From Birmingham
For the winter 2021/22 season, Ryanair will have four based aircraft at Birmingham and will offer service on 28 routes, including six new routes with flights to Bergamo, Lisbon, Bucharest, Shannon, Turin and Vilnius.
On Wednesday (September 8, 2021), Ryanair announced their winter 2021/22 schedule from Birmingham. With four based aircraft, the carrier will offer service on 28 routes, including six new routes to Bergamo, Lisbon, Bucharest, Shannon, Turin and Vilnius. To celebrate the launch of the new routes, Ryanair is offering fares from only £19.99 for travel through November 2021. To qualify for the low introductory fares, tickets must be booked by midnight on Friday, September 10, 2021.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said,
“Ryanair remains committed to re-building the UK’s tourism industry and strengthening connectivity as Ryanair continues to grow in Europe and travel returns to pre-pandemic level. As Ryanair takes delivery of 55 Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft this Winter, we are delighted to announce these six new routes from Birmingham this Winter – operating a total of 28 routes.
“As travel continues to grow and consumer confidence in air travel returns, Ryanair once again calls on the UK Govt to scrap or suspend APD (air passenger duty), to allow airlines quickly recover connectivity, jobs and tourism in the aftermath of the pandemic. APD makes UK airports very uncompetitive versus Europe, where Ryanair continues to add capacity, having opened a number of bases in recent months in the likes of Zagreb, Stockholm, Billund and Riga. While Ryanair is committed to the UK and its Birmingham airport, the lack of Govt support continues to create further barriers to boosting traffic and growth.
“We are launching a seat sale to celebrate the new Winter routes from Birmingham, with fares available from just £19.99 for travel until end Nov 2021, which must be booked by midnight Friday, 10th September 2021. Our customers can now book in a winter getaway to Bergamo, Lisbon, Bucharest, Shannon, Turin, Vilnius and many more. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.”
