Ryanair has announced that it will open a new base at Venice Treviso Airport on March 30, 2021.
Ryanair will base two aircraft at Treviso and will operate 15 domestic routes and 45 international routes from the airport.
Ryanair's CEO Eddie Wilson stated, "We are delighted to launch our fifteenth Italian base, which represents a $200 million investment at Ryanair's Venice Treviso Airport.
"We have a strong affiliation to Venice Treviso, since Ryanair’s first ever flight to Italy in 1998 was from London Stansted to Venice Treviso. Italy is one of Ryanair's biggest markets and we want to continue to support the economic recovery as well as regional and international connectivity across the country.
"We are delighted to conclude this long-term investment with SAVE Group in developing connections to the Veneto Region based on efficient operations and competitive airport charges, paving the way for traffic growth and new routes at Ryanair's fifteenth Italian base."
