Ryanair has announced its summer 2022 schedule for East Midlands Airport.
In a statement published on corporate.ryanair.com, Ryanair said, "Ryanair…has…announced its summer 2022 schedule from East Midlands Airport. This exciting schedule will operate over 130 weekly flights across 31 European destinations from April, boosting connectivity, jobs and tourism as Ryanair continues to lead traffic and tourism recovery and growth across Europe.
"UK families can now book a summer holiday to European hotspots such as Alicante, Barcelona, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rhodes and Tenerife to name a few. To celebrate, Ryanair has launched a £19.99 seat sale for travel until the end of October 2022, which must be booked by midnight Saturday, 6th November - the perfect excuse for a well-deserved getaway with family or friends. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out."
Ryanair added, "Ryanair's Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said, "As Europe's No.1 airline, we are pleased to extend our partnership with East Midlands Airport and announce our summer 2022 schedule, connecting UK families to a host of European hotspots for their much deserved summer 2022 holiday.
"Ryanair remains committed to re-building Europe's aviation and tourism industries by restoring connectivity and growing our network of passengers to over 225 million per annum by 2026. We are delighted to have extended our long-term partnership with East Midlands, Manchester and Stansted airports who will now all benefit from Ryanair's delivery of 210 Boeing 'gamechanger' aircraft.
"We are launching a seat sale to celebrate the summer 2022 schedule from East Midlands Airport, with fares available from just £19.99 for travel until the end of October 2022 which must be booked on the Ryanair website by midnight Saturday, 6th November 2021. Our customers can now book a summer getaway to the likes of Alicante, Chania, Lanzarote, Malaga, Mallorca, Rome, Tenerife and many more on amazing low fares.
"While Ryanair welcomes the UK government's decision to reduce domestic APD from summer 2023, it is neither sufficient nor timely enough to kickstart the UK’s tourism recovery, particularly for summer 2022. Unfortunately, this delay will only damage the airline industry's ability to rapidly rebuild connectivity, jobs and tourism.
"Ryanair calls on the UK government to immediately abolish APD for all travel, which would give both tourism and domestic UK connectivity a much-needed boost for this winter and next summer."
