UK families and visitors can now book a much-deserved Autumn break to one of Ryanair’s six new routes from Birmingham including Bergamo, Lisbon, Bucharest, Shannon, Turin and Vilnius.

Birmingham - 6 new winter 2021 routes:
Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness said:
“Ryanair remains committed to re-building the UK’s tourism industry and strengthening connectivity as Ryanair continues to grow in Europe and travel returns to pre-pandemic level. As Ryanair takes delivery of 55 Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft this Winter, we are delighted to announce these six new routes from Birmingham this Winter – operating a total of 28 routes.
“As travel continues to grow and consumer confidence in air travel returns, Ryanair once again calls on the UK Govt to scrap or suspend APD (air passenger duty), to allow airlines quickly recover connectivity, jobs and tourism in the aftermath of the pandemic. APD makes UK airports very uncompetitive versus Europe, where Ryanair continues to add capacity, having opened a number of bases in recent months in the likes of Zagreb, Stockholm, Billund and Riga. While Ryanair is committed to the UK and its Birmingham airport, the lack of Govt support continues to create further barriers to boosting traffic and growth.
“We are launching a seat sale to celebrate the new Winter routes from Birmingham, with fares available from just £19.99 for travel until end Nov 2021, which must be booked by midnight Friday, 10th September 2021. Our customers can now book in a winter getaway to Bergamo, Lisbon, Bucharest, Shannon, Turin, Vilnius and many more. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out.”
Tom Screen Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Director, said:
“After the most challenging last 18 months, it’s fantastic to see Ryanair launching further routes from Birmingham Airport, helping to grow consumer confidence in flying overseas again and supporting the recovery of air travel. These six new destinations starting this winter will give more choice and flexibility for Midlanders looking for a break in Europe, all at amazingly affordable prices. We are incredibly grateful to Ryanair for continuing to grow its Birmingham base and for having confidence in our region.”
