Ryanair has unveiled its plans to launch 26 new routes for the summer season, including routes to popular holiday destinations, such as Italy, France, Greece, Portugal, and Spain.

To mark the new routes’ launch, Ryanair has begun a sale for summer flights that will include fares of £19.99 each way and last until October 2021.

Ryanair’s Group CEO, Michael O’Leary, said: “The UK Govt has implemented a very successful vaccine rollout programme, and is on track for a re-opening of EU short-haul travel this summer. Ryanair is pleased to offer even more choice and lower fares to our UK customers and their families with over 2,300 weekly flights and 480 routes to choose from, including 26 exciting new holiday connections to Naples, Rhodes, Chania, Alicante and Mallorca among many others”.

Michael O’Leary also admitted that the airline is looking to fly at around 80% of its pre-Covid pandemic summer schedule for July, August, and September.

At this point, however, there is a ban on international travel from the UK. The rule-breakers are subject to fines of up to £5,000.
