Ryanair adding fresh Belfast International Airport route to Warsaw

By John Mulgrew

Ryanair is adding another new Belfast International Airport route to Warsaw in Poland.

The new route from the low-cost carrier was announced at the Routes Europe air show in Krakow.

Earlier this year Michael O'Leary announced he was adding seven new routes, upon the airline's return to the city.

A spokesman for Ryanair said: "We're pleased to launch a new Belfast route to Warsaw, operating twice weekly from the winter, and we will be unveiling more exciting news for Belfast on Wednesday."

The budget carrier will begin the bulk of the services in late 2016 from Belfast International Airport, and more could follow in the future.

The routes include Berlin and Krakow, alongside popular sun destinations such as Malaga and Tenerife.

Mr O'Leary yesterday called on Stormont to do more to help airlines.

Both Belfast International and Belfast City airports have been at the Routes Europe conference to bring in fresh sun routes and open up new business links with the rest of Europe, and potentially further afield.
