2023-02-10, kl. 08:45

Ryanair continues to invest heavily in the Swedish market and develop its operations at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Two more routes and a new aircraft are now being added, while existing routes will have expanded timetables for the summer season. That means eight new routes will have been launched since October 2022, with Ryanair now operating a total of 45 routes and 320 flights a week to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

With its new investment, Ryanair will have a total of five aircraft stationed at Arlanda. Of the eight new routes in 2022–23, service is already available to Birmingham, Malta, Pisa, Turin, Tuzla and Valencia, while two new routes will debut in the spring and summer:

  • Arlanda - Dublin will start March 26
  • Arlanda - Porto will start June 4

Ten of the carrier’s existing routes will also operate more frequently during the summer period. These higher-frequency routes include the destinations Krakow, Milan, Thessaloniki and Vienna as well as some domestic destinations. Ryanair’s summer 2023 programme entails a 6 per cent expansion in service compared to summer 2022.

The investment in a new aircraft will mean 30 more jobs for pilots and cabin crew at Ryainair’s base at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. In addition to the 45 flight routes that will serve Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Ryanair has 22 flight routes in traffic at Gothenburg Landvetter Airport, two at Malmö Airport, one at Luleå Airport and one at Visby Airport, a total of 71 routes via Swedavia's airports.
