Ryanair is betting on Apulia with five new Bari routes and a 75-route summer operation. The new routes include the five new routes from Bari to Billund, Comiso, Edinburgh, Porto, and Tel Aviv, and the six new routes from Brindisi to Barcelona, Bordeaux, Genoa, Perugia, Stockholm, and Zagreb. The low-cost carrier will offer over 2.2 million seats for summer 2022 (60% more than the 2019 pre-pandemic summer) providing Apulia’s passengers with a diverse range of options to major European destinations in Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. 

A 500-million-dollar investment

This summer Ryanair will have five aircraft based in Apulia (3 in Bari and 2 in Brindisi) for a $500 million investment. With 50 routes from Bari and 25 from Brindisi some 6.3 million passengers are expected to fly on these routes in 2023.

“The need to eliminate the tourism tax on all air travel”

"This is a record-breaking operation in Apulia, with over 780 weekly flights on 50 routes from Bari and 25 from Brindisi, including 11 new routes,” said Ryanair's country manager for Italy, Mauro Bolla. “This growth strengthens our commitment to support the recovery of the Italian market with more international flightds, while giving a boost to inbound and outbound tourism this summer. To accelerate the recovery of tourism we are asking the Italian government to eliminate the tourism tax on all air travel from 2022 to 2025. This tax is damaging the competitiveness of Italian airports compared to those in Europe.”

“The Irish carrier is driving tourism in Apulia” 

"The strong communion of intentions between Aeroporti di Puglia and Ryanair - added Antonio Maria Vasile, president of Aeroporti di Puglia - continues to produce excellent results for our region and for the economy. The Irish carrier's strong interest in Apulia and in tourism, which is the driving sector of our economy, translates into an operation that now covers all the most important markets.”
