and live on Freeview channel 276
The budget airline will run a weekly service from Edinburgh Airport to the island of Rhodes. The flights are set to begin in April, just in time for the summer holidays. Ryanair are set to release more details about the new route in the coming weeks.
Edinburgh Airport announced the news to customers on social media, writing: “Ryanair has announced a new weekly route from Edinburgh to Rhodes for the summer season, ideal if you're planning a getaway to this stunning Greek island.”
This is just one of many new routes introduced by airlines, as the aviation industry recovers from Covid. Last month, Ryanair announced a new twice-weekly route from Edinburgh to Cornwall which will run this summer. The airline also launched cheap flights from the Scottish Capital to Venice in Italy, with some seats priced as cheap as £29.99.
Another budget airline, Jet2, has increased flights on sale from Edinburgh Airport to Antalya – a popular holiday destination on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. Delta Airlines will also run a new daily service this summer, from Edinburgh to the US city of Atlanta.
The announcements of new routes come as demand for international travel increases, after a steep drop in passengers was reported in 2020 and 2021, due to Covid travel restrictions. While Edinburgh Airport recorded its lowest number of passengers in 2020, earlier this week, the airport announced that it reported a strong recovery last year, after seeing numbers rise significantly.
