Ryanair is to extend its connecting flights service by adding 20 new non-direct flights across Europe via Porto.

From January 3, passengers will be able to change at Porto to get to their final destination.

The 20 new routes are between 17 airports and passengers will transfer airside with one booking reference for both flights. Checked-in baggage will be transferred through to the passengers’ final destination.

The low cost carrier already operates a similar service at Rome Fiumicino and Milan Bergamo.

Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said:“Ryanair is pleased to extend our connecting flights service to Porto Airport from January 3 2018, allowing customers to book connecting Ryanair flights on the lowest fares at one of our four popular Portuguese bases.

“Starting with an initial 20 new routes, customers will be able to transfer onto their next flight without having to go landside, and have their bags checked through to their final destination.”
