Accordingly, the low-cost airline is expanding its route network by eight new destinations to a total of 70 routes that are served from Vienna.

The Irish low-cost airline wants to further expand its position in Austria with a “record winter flight schedule”, explained Ryanair CEO Michael O Leary at a press conference in Vienna. Bremen, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Manchester, Sibiu, Tuzla as well as Genoa and Venice are new to the programme.

“As Europe's largest and most reliable low-fare airline, Ryanair is pleased to announce Vienna's largest winter schedule to date, with 600 weekly flights on 70 routes,” notes O Leary. He also refers to the summer season: According to this, Ryanair had a load factor of 115 percent compared to the pre-Covid period.

Flights from Klagenfurt are also planned

Ryanair will also start from Klagenfurt with the winter flight schedule. "Ryanair will continue to ensure growth and boost tourism in Austria, even if the Austrian government squanders 300 million euros of tax money on state aid to the Lufthansa subsidiary AUA," said the Ryanair CEO with a swipe at AUA don't hold back. In doing so, they did nothing other than cancel routes and cut jobs.

With the winter flight schedule, 17 aircraft will be stationed in Vienna. With 600 weekly flights, 600 new jobs will be created, a total investment of 1,7 billion dollars. According to Ryanair, it will not raise prices because of higher kerosene prices. After all, the airline secured fuel costs at $68 per barrel (at 159 liters) until April. Apart from that, Ryanair wants to increase the proportion of sustainable kerosene in the coming years.
