In a recent report, Ryanair announced new services from Cardiff Airport for the Summer 2019 schedule, as well as discussing the continuation of services to Faro Airport this year. The new service will be from Cardiff to Malaga and will be run three times a week starting from June this year. Robin Kiely, Head of Communications at Faro Airport said: “Ryanair is pleased to announce a new Cardiff route to Malaga, commencing in June, which will operate three times weekly, as part of our extended Cardiff summer 2019 schedule.”
Deb Barber, the CEO of Cardiff Airport, made a statement commenting on the new route, as well as his satisfaction with the continued service to Faro. In this statement, Barber said: “It’s fantastic to see Ryanair continuing to expand its choice from Cardiff with the announcement of a third new route for Summer 2019, bringing the total number of routes to five. This means that in just one year, Ryanair has grown its capacity at Cardiff Airport by over 150%.
“Malaga is one of our most popular destinations, with customers jetting off to enjoy city breaks and sunny holidays all year round. The addition of three return flights a week this Summer adds a wealth of choice for customers seeking low-cost fares. We look forward to the launch of direct flights to Malaga, Malta and Barcelona plus the continuation of services to Faro and Tenerife in 2019.”
