Ryanair, the budget airline based in Ireland, is preparing for its busiest summer yet and is set to handle approximately 20% of incoming flights to Spain in May 2023.
With over 20 destinations throughout the country, the airline is expanding its services and has recently launched three new routes connecting Spain to Essaouira, London, and Ouarzazate. The new flights include Essaouira to Madrid, London to Vigo, and Ouarzazate to Barcelona. With the addition of these routes, Ryanair aims to increase its passenger numbers and strengthen its presence in the Spanish market.
Madrid Airport (MAD), the largest airport in Spain, is expected to receive the highest number of arriving flights next month, followed by Barcelona (BCN), Palma de Mallorca (PMI), Malaga (AGP), and Alicante (ALC).
Vueling, owned by the IAG Group, is predicted to have the second-highest percentage (15%) of flights connecting airports in the United Kingdom with those in Spain. The airline has been actively enhancing its UK network and is gearing up for its busiest summer season.
Following Vueling, the Spanish carrier Iberia holds the third position with 13% of flights, while Binter Canarias secures 8%. The UK-based airline easyJet comes in fifth place, handling 6% of the total arrivals.
