We will deliver 6 exciting new routes to Spain, Greece, Italy and Ireland and have added more flights to Vilnius, as we increase our schedule to 107 weekly flights, carrying 2.2m annual customers to/from London Luton.

To celebrate these new routes, we are releasing seats for sale on these new routes from just £14.99, which are available for booking from today until midnight Monday (27th August) for travel from September to January. Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto and avoid missing out.”

We are currently carrying out the single biggest investment in our 80-year history to meet continued demand from passengers and give them the best travel experience possible. Our continued work with airline partners means that passengers now have more choice of destinations than ever before. We look forward to continuing to work with Ryanair as we grow and transform.”
