Ryanair is to launch 50 new routes in 2008 departing from seven airports across the UK to destinations in France, Spain, Germany and Italy.
Flights to Girona airport, a little over 60 miles from Barcelona, will be available from Birmingham, Manchester and Newquay airports. Alicante is another Spanish route set to launch in the new year from Durham Tees, Edinburgh and Newquay airports, as well as another route to Malaga (from Liverpool).
Also new for 2008 are flights to the Italian city of Pisa from Edinburgh and Birmingham, to Milan from Manchester, and to the Portuguese city of Faro, in the Algarve, from London Stansted.
Germany will also be served by the budget airline – with flights from Edinburgh to Frankfurt and Bremen, and Manchester to Frankfurt.
Holidaymakers looking for cheap flights to France will have the option of travelling to the southern French city of Marseille from Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester, and to Angouleme, close to Bordeaux, from London Stansted. Liverpool to Nantes flights are also set to start next year.
