Ryanair launches new Belfast to Girona route for Summer 2017

By John Mulgrew

Ryanair is launching a service from Belfast to Girona in Spain.

The new link will bring Ryanair's routes from Belfast International to 12.

The flight to the Catalonian city - which is 90km from Barcelona - will operate twice a week from next year.

The low-cost airline announced its return to Belfast earlier this year. It now flies from Belfast International to locations including Gatwick, Malaga, Berlin and Milan.

Robin Kiely, Ryanair's head of communications, said: "We are pleased to further extend our Belfast summer 2017 schedule with a new route to Barcelona Girona, in addition to our 10 new summer routes and our four times daily service to London Gatwick, which will deliver 1.1m customers a year and support over 800 jobs at Belfast International Airport. To celebrate our new Belfast-Girona route, we are releasing seats for sale from just £24.99 for travel in March and April."

Uel Hoey, Belfast International business development director, said the route was "proof of Ryanair's commitment" to the region.
