Over the next two months, Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair will begin routes from the UK to Morocco and Ukraine.
From November 5, the airline will fly between Manchester (MAN) and Lviv (LWO) in Ukraine. The ULCC will fly the route twice weekly with Boeing 737 MAX 8 200 planes.
From December 18, Ryanair will offer service between Edinburgh (EDI) and Marrakesh (RAK) in Morocco. A 737 MAX 8 200 will also operate the route twice weekly.
“Ryanair remains committed to rebuilding Europe’s aviation and tourism industry by restoring connectivity and growing its network of passengers to over 225 million by 2026,” the airline said in a statement.
Ryanair renewed its appeal for the UK government to “cancel or suspend APD [Air Passenger Duty] to allow airlines to quickly recover connectivity, jobs, and tourism in the aftermath of the epidemic,” according to the airline.
The carrier added: “APD makes UK airports very uncompetitive compared to those in Europe … While Ryanair is committed to the UK … the lack of government support continues to create barriers to boosting traffic and growth.”
