Olbia will be Ryanair’s 30th airport on its 10-route Italian network

By Thursday, 16 May 2024 11:12

By adding Olbia - its 30th airport served in Italy – Ryanair ups its network of 10 domestic and international routes.

Ryanair offers 300,000 new seats at Olbia’s Costa Smeralda airport

With 60 weekly flights, which, as Costa Smeralda Airport's route manager Mario Garau explained, “are perfectly articulated with respect to the traffic at our airport and destination,” according to forecasts "Ryanair, is the 39th company in our network, bringing us 300,000 new seats and allowing us to reach 3.5 million passengers, with a 20% growth in traffic."

The aim is to carry over 1.2 million passengers 

The low-cost airline will therefore be operating "to all three Sardinian airports from this year, with record operations for North Sardinia, with over 230 flights per week on 33 routes. The aim is to carry over 1.2 million passengers to and from the region," said Ryanair’s CCO Jason McGuinness.

A 12% increase in frequencies over 2023

Alghero airport is set to have its best season ever, with the confirmation of last year's 22 routes, the addition of Frankfurt, and a 12% increase in flight frequency compared to 2023. The airport welcomes Ryanair's choice of a five-year agreement. "Thanks also to an important investment by the reference shareholder, Alghero airport is not only not left alone or abandoned, but has plans for long-term development," says Fabio Gallo, the airport's general manager.

Asking Sardinia to axe the municipal surtax

McGuiness asks Sardinia to fall into line with the Friuli Venezia-Giulia region which recently decided to abolish the municipal surtax from 1 January. "Following that decision, Ryanair opened a new base in Trieste, with a 50% growth for next summer. The same thing could happen with Alghero and Olbia.”
