RYANAIR will add two new summer routes at Liverpool, to Poland and Croatia, taking its seasonal links to 39.
The Dublin-based airline says the routes will bring 180,000 new passengers for Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA), taking Ryanair’s annual passenger numbers at JLA to 2.1m.
Airline boss Michael O’Leary said there were also plans for an extra plane to be based at the airport next summer, taking Ryanair’s total to eight.
He also said he hoped to increase annual passenger numbers at JLA to 3m in the next three years.
The new routes, starting in the summer season, are to Lublin in Poland and Zadar in Croatia.
Craig Richmond, UK executive for JLA owner Vantage Airports, said: “We’re delighted with Ryanair’s latest commitment to grow their business from Liverpool.”
