On Friday (December 4, 2020), Ryanair celebrated the opening of a new base at Venice-Treviso where they will house two aircraft and operate 45 routes, including 18 new routes to leisure and business destinations including Alghero, Alicante, Frankfurt-Hahn, Paphos, Pescara, Riga, Tel Aviv, Thessaloniki and Trapani. The company will invest $200 million at the base and will connect Venice-Treviso domestically and internationally to over 20 countries. The new base is part of Ryanair’s commitment to the Veneto region across three airports including Venice-Marco Polo, Verona and now Venice-Treviso. In total, the carrier will operate 60 routes across all three airports supporting 60 direct and 2,000 indirect jobs. In Friday’s announcement, 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.

To celebrate the launch of our new Venice Treviso base, we are launching an unmissable seat sale, with prices starting at €24.99 for travel to / from Venice Treviso, Venice Marco Polo and Verona, from April to October 2021, available until midnight Monday (7th December). Having just extended the waiving of our flight change fee, any customers that have to change their December or January flights, can make changes to their booking without incurring a flight change fee, up to 30th September 2021. A much-deserved getaway is only a click away so to avoid disappointment, we advise customers to act fast and book directly on www.ryanair.com before these amazing low fares are snapped up!”

In an earlier announcement on Thursday (December 3, 2020), Ryanair celebrated the launch of a new base at Paris-Beauvais which will house two aircraft, representing a $200 million investment, and connect the airport on 28 routes to 10 countries across Europe.
