Adding to its direct connections in the Malaga Airport to Dublin, Shannon, Brussels, Frankfurt, Bremen and Düsseldorf, Ryanair announced this week a new route to Liverpool. This announcement comes on the wings of indications that the airline is doing pretty well, even in the face of a dim financial year for everyone besides the oil industry. They purportedly carried 4.5 million passengers in March, a 19% increase over last year’s stats. Anyway, back to Malaga. Other non-stop connections to the UK to be opened in 2008:
– Bournemouth (April)
– East Midlands (June)
– Edinburgh (September)
They will also be linking to France with a new route to Marseilles. With all these new connections, the airline expects to round out this year with a total of 460,000 passengers in flights to Malaga.
