Irish low-cost airline Ryanair expanded its Leeds Bradford Airport winter 2016 schedule on August 5, adding two new routes to Bratislava and Vilnius.

As a result, the winter 2016 winter schedule now includes four new routes: Bratislava (two weekly), Gran Canaria (two weekly), Vilnius (two weekly) and Warsaw (two weekly).

“Ryanair’s Vilnius and Bratislava routes from Leeds Bradford Airport are a great addition to their winter schedule from LBA; both are fantastic destinations for city breaks and for business travel,” said Tony Hallwood, aviation development director at Leeds Bradford Airport, as quoted in the press release.

Launching the two new routes to Bratislava and Vilnius will deliver 1.1 million customers p.a. and support 825 jobs at Leeds Bradford Airport, as we grow by over 20 percent, added Ryanair’s Robin Kiely.

He expects that these twice weekly services will be popular with both leisure and business customers.
