Ryanair intends positioning Calabria as a leading European destination.

Reggio Calabria gets 8 new routes

With a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Reggio Calabria for Ryanair's new base, the Irish low-cost company has positioned an aircraft at the airport and launched eight new routes, five of which are international: Barcelona, Berlin, Bologna, Manchester, Marseille, Tirana, Turin and Venice.

“Providing competitive fares and increased connectivity”

"This significant expansion,- said CEO, Eddie Wilson, -marks the beginning of a long-term strategy with the region to position Calabria as a leading destination in Europe, increasing inbound tourism, connectivity and employment, while offering the lowest fares in Europe. With a commitment to provide competitive fares and increased connectivity, Ryanair is poised to transform travel for residents and visitors, unlocking the full potential of the Calabria Region, attracting a diverse range of tourists and stimulating economic development."

“We have a plan to modernize all of Calabria’s airports”

"In just a few months we have placed our airport company SACAL under the control of the Region and finally made it operational,- said Roberto Occhiuto, president of the Calabria Region  “At the same time we have a plan to modernize all of Calabria’s airports. Two years ago Reggio Calabria Airport had no prospect of development and with flights to Rome and Milan in danger of being cancelled. We saved those connections, had them doubled, and a few months ago we officially presented Ryanair's debut on the shores of the Strait of Messina together with Eddie Wilson.”

“Our goal is to bring more tourists to Calabria”

This summer Ryanair has also increased the routes from the airports of Lamezia Terme and Crotone and is currently operating 30 connections in Calabria. “Our goal is to grow the entire regional airport system, to bring more tourists to Calabria and give new opportunities to our fellow citizens. With Ryanair we are on a path that will be positive for our Region in the coming months and years.”
