Ryanair launches new Manchester Airport route to Kiev

Ryanair today launched a new twice-weekly route from Manchester to Kiev in Ukraine with a twice-weekly service to start in April 2019 as part of its summer 2019 schedule.

The roster includes 62 routes in total with seven new routes to Bordeaux, Gothenburg, Marrakech, Marseille, Nantes, Thessaloniki and Kyiv, which will deliver over 5.4 million customers through Manchester Airport next year.

Manchester consumers and visitors can now choose from 62 Manchester routes next summer which will also be operated on Ryanair’s all-Boeing 737 fleet.

Manchester Airport aviation director, Julian Carr said: “Kyiv is currently unserved and this route will open up the Ukraine for the 22 million people in our catchment area.”

Last week, Ryanair launched more London Stansted Airport Easter flights with over 40 additional return flights to the likes of Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.

The summer 2019 Stansted schedule also offers 139 routes, including three new routes to Kiev, Lviv and Nantes, with over 1,200 weekly flights, which the carrier said will deliver over 21.4 million customers through the airport next year.

Earlier this month also announced a major investment at Edinburgh Airport for next summer adding 11 new routes and an additional aircraft.
