Three low fare routes to Germany are being introduced by Ryanair from Manchester airport next winter.

Daily flights will run to Berlin, Hamburg and Nuremberg from November with promotional fares starting at £19.99 one way for bookings made by midnight on February 16

Manchester airport managing director, Ken O’Toole said: “It is hugely positive to see Ryanair expanding its offering from Manchester Airport.

“Nuremberg is an important business destination for the region and it is pleasing to be able to support companies who operate in that part of the world – or are looking to do so in the future – with a new direct service.

“Hamburg and Berlin are also strong business destinations, which will strengthen Ryanair’s offering from Manchester.

“I am sure all of the three routes will also prove popular with leisure passengers looking for a European city break.

“We will continue to work to grow our route network and connect the north with key business and leisure destinations across the world.”

A Ryanair spokesman said: “UK customers can look forward to further improvements in the coming months, including new aircraft interiors, new uniforms and more new routes, under our ‘Always Getting Better’ programme, as we continue to offer so much more than just the lowest fares.”
