A new ski route to Turin in Italy is being introduced by Ryanair from Bristol airport.

Weekly flights are due to start in December and run until March 2020.

The no-frills carrier’s UK and Ireland sales marketing executive Eimear Ryan said:“Ryanair is pleased to add this extra ski option for Bristol consumers to take to the slopes, with a weekly flight to Turin, Italy, starting in December as part of our extended Bristol winter ‘19 schedule.”

Bristol airport business development director Nigel Scott added:“We are delighted Ryanair is adding Turin to the route network from Bristol airport this winter.

“The announcement further extends the choice for passengers either as a great winter getaway, or as a skiing destination due to Turin’s proximity to the Alps.”
