Ryanair Launches Summer 2023 Schedule For Edinburgh

Ryanair has announced its new Edinburgh schedule for Summer ‘23, with 69 routes incl. 6 new destinations – Belfast, Bournemouth, Cornwall, London Stansted, Rhodes and Venice – as well as increased frequencies on over 30 of Ryanair’s most popular Edinburgh routes.

This record schedule will see Ryanair base one new aircraft in Edinburgh (11 total) for Summer ‘23 – another $100m investment and creating over 30 new highly paid jobs for pilots and cabin crew.

Ryanair’s Edinburgh Summer ‘23 schedule will deliver:

  • 1 new based aircraft (11 total)
  • $1.1bn investment
  • 69 routes, incl. 6 new destinations – Belfast, Bournemouth, Cornwall, London Stansted, Rhodes & Venice
  • Increased frequencies on over 30 routes, incl. Alicante, Barcelona, Brussels Charleroi, Milan & Shannon
  • Over 25% capacity growth (vs S22)
  • 4.7M passengers per annum

This Summer, Ryanair will offer its Edinburgh citizens/visitors the widest choice when booking their Summer ‘23 getaways this summer (+25% growth vs S22) and at the lowest fares in Europe, growing both inbound tourism and jobs.

This unrivalled growth is underpinned by Ryanair’s $1.1bn investment in Edinburgh Airport, with 11 based aircraft.

Although Ryanair welcomes the UK Govt’s 50% APD cut for domestic travel from Apr’23, this reduction ignores international connectivity which is fundamental for the growth of the UK’s economy and tourism.

Ryanair calls on the UK Govt to fully abolish APD immediately for all travel, which would not only promote tourism, but support much needed connectivity to the UK, an island-based economy.

To celebrate this record-breaking Edinburgh schedule for Summer ‘23, Ryanair is launching a limited time seat sale with fares from just £29.99 for travel between Apr’23 and Oct’23, which must be booked by midnight 10 Feb on www.ryanair.com.

Ryanair’s Dara Brady said: “As the UK’s no.1 airline for low fares and reliability, Ryanair is pleased to announce our new Edinburgh schedule for Summer 2023, with 6 exciting new routes to Belfast, Bournemouth, Cornwall, London Stansted, Rhodes and Venice, offering Edinburgh customers/visitors even more choice for their summer holidays at the lowest fares in Europe.

“This record 2023 schedule will see the addition of one new based aircraft (11 total), representing another $100m investment in Edinburgh Airport ($1.1bn total) and supporting over 330 highly paid pilot and crew jobs, as Ryanair continues to deliver more traffic, connectivity, and lower fares than any other airline for the UK.

“However, if we are to continue to grow and to drive recovery and connectivity to the UK, Prime Minister Sunak must immediately scrap APD in full for all travel (not just domestic travel) and provide incentives for airlines like Ryanair to stimulate growth and recovery for the UK and its regions.”

Kate Sherry, Aviation Director at Edinburgh Airport, said: “With six fantastic new routes, and increased frequency to many of Europe’s most popular destinations, the arrival of Ryanair’s summer schedule for ’23 is great news for our passengers – as is the introduction of the new cleaner, quieter Boeing 737 Gamechanger aircraft for many of these flights.

“It is always our aim to offer as much choice as possible from Edinburgh and the announcement of this schedule comes as we continue to build towards a strong summer season at the airport.

“This investment, which will also see an additional Ryanair aircraft based at EDI, is a real show of faith in the market – illustrating the growing demand for travel we’re seeing at Edinburgh.”
