Ryanair raises UK summer capacity to Greece

Ryanair is raising capacity from UK airports to Greece this summer including three new routes.

The no-frills carrier has responded to the country announcing that overseas tourists will be welcome from May 14.

New routes from Stansted to Santorini, Zakynthos and Preveza start on July 1.

Ryanair has also added five extra flights a week from Birmingham, East Midlands, Manchester, Southend and Stansted to Corfu and Rhodes.

Fares start at £24.99 for travel until the end of October for bookings made by March 13.

The carrier’s commercial director Jason McGuinness said: “We are delighted to offer even greater choice, more routes and extra flights to Greece for our UK customers this summer.

“The UK government’s highly successful vaccination programme gives customers the confidence that travel will be possible this summer.

“UK consumers can now choose from over 20 routes, including three announced today, and five extra weekly flights at low fares to some of the most popular summer holiday destinations in Greece.

“Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, Ryanair is now allowing up to two free flight date changes on all bookings should plans change.”
