Ryanair axes Rome route

Have your say

Ryanair is to scrap its Edinburgh to Rome flights over the winter months.

The Irish airline said it had taken the decision amid the lack of a low-cost deal with Edinburgh Airport and high oil prices, but added that the route will return in the spring.

An Edinburgh Airport spokesman, who described the news as disappointing, said: “We are working closely with them to discuss the future and we continue to work with all of our airlines to maximise the number of routes served by Edinburgh Airport.”
