Budget airline Ryanair Ryanair is to begine three new routes to Poland later this year from its new base at Belfast International Airport.
The twice-weekly services will operate to Gdansk, Warsaw and Wroclaw, the firm said following earlier confirmation of flights to seven other European destinations including Berlin, Milan and Krakow.
“Our new Polish routes will be ideal for both business and leisure customers and we look forward to growing routes, traffic and jobs in Belfast in the coming months and years,” said chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs.
Belfast International Airport managing director Graham Keddie said: “This is more fantastic news from Ryanair.
“It means that this winter should be one of our busiest ever. Gdansk, Warsaw and Wroclaw follow Krakow and deliver a very comprehensive network to a new and important Polish market.
We currently stand as the eleventh largest airport in the UK, but I expect that with continuing airline expansion and growth in passenger numbers, we will break into the ‘Top Ten’ before too long.
“The airport is delivering real economic benefit for Northern Ireland and that means new employment and business opportunities.”
