Rome will have 46 Ryanair routes by end of year
Low-cost airline Ryanair has announced nine new flights from Rome, all of which will be available later on this year.
The Irish carrier will launch four new destinations from its base at Ciampino, to Berlin, Bucharest, Copenhagen and Rabat in Morocco, while there will be five new flights from Fiumicino airport, to Bari, Brindisi, Comiso in Sicily, Marseille and Seville.
In addition the 30-year-old company will increase its Ciampino flights to Cologne, Lisbon, London, Manchester and Warsaw. It will also add extra flights to Barcelona and Palermo.
By the end of 2015 there will be a total of 36 Ryanair flights operating out of Ciampino and 10 routes from Fiumicino, and the expansion should see the no-frills carrier increase its combined annual passenger numbers from Rome to 7.7 million.
