Ryanair lands in Málaga

Ryanair will release this week 22 new connections from Malaga airport.

The low cost airline which moves most passengers in Europe will open on Tuesday a base of operations in the terminal T2 of Malaga airport with an investment of 200 million Euros. It is the largest landing of a company ‘low cost’ in the capital, which will provide 44 direct routes and will give a strong momentum in the city’s direct connections with national and international destinations.

It was in 2003 when in Malaga landed for the first time a Ryanair plane, at the time when the phenomenon ‘low cost’ was exploding and when few could have imagined the evolution of these companies and the force attained over the years despite competing with the giants of commercial aviation, the flag carriers.
From now on, this company will operate in the capital of the Costa del Sol 360 flights a week.

Of these 44 connections, seven will improve air communications from the capital of the Costa del Sol to other Spanish destinations, specifically to seven domestic airports: Santiago, Santander, Valladolid, Zaragoza, Valencia, Gerona and Barcelona.

New flights to international airports include Aarhus, Berlin, Billund, Bratislava, Krakow, Eindhoven, Stockholm Skavsta, Goteborg, Haugesund, Maastricht, Memmingen (Munich West), Oslo Torp, Paris Beauvais, Pisa, Tampere, Venice-Treviso and Wroclaw.

The company said: “Ryanair becomes the most economical option for travel in Spain not only for tourism and recreation, but also for work and business travel. The company offers a rapid means of transport, economic and secure way to strengthen and open up new work and professional relationships between Malaga and the rest of the peninsula.”
