Britons will be able to visit more destinations with Ryanair within months

Ryanair has added a new permanent route going from Birmingham Airport.

This comes as the airline gets ready for its new summer 2024 schedule.

Flights will go between Derry and Birmingham twice a week for the first time.

Holidaymakers will be able to take these flights from April this year.

Ryanair has shared a new route


Managing director at City of Derry Airport Steve Frazer said: “We are thrilled to expand our route map with Ryanair and provide a much-needed service for our local catchment area across Derry City and Strabane, the Causeway Coast and Glens, Donegal and beyond."

Ryanair has shared its summer 2024 schedule where Britons can pick from 37 million seats available from the UK.

New routes will run from the end of March to popular city breaks and less well-known destinations across Europe.

Flights can be pre-booked now for anyone planning ahead for the summer.

Ryanair’s head of communications Jade Kirwan said: "Ryanair is pleased to announce our summer 2024 schedule with over 37 million seats available for our UK customers across a host of amazing destinations.

"So, if you’re looking to soak up some well-deserved sun this summer, you won’t be disappointed with the unbeatable selection of destinations we have on offer at the lowest fares in Europe.

"Customers should visit ryanair.com now and book early to make sure they secure the best possible price – future you will thank you for it.”

The Ryanair summer schedule will begin soon


Greece is a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for a sunny getaway.

However, Britons have been issued a warning as new higher taxes are set to be introduced in peak travel months.

Holidaymakers will need to pay more tourist fees in the summer season.

This is a climate levy and the charges will be used for a reserve fund for reconstruction efforts following natural disasters.
