Both Ryanair and easyJet have recently announced winter season expansion plans, resulting in increased network coverage between both popular and new destinations.


Ryanair’s newest hub in Lisbon is set to connect the Portuguese capital with Brussels, Frankfurt, London, and Paris from the end of November.

The end of construction works at Warsaw Modlin finds the return of 28 Ryanair routes to the airport’s runways since September 30th.

Ryanair has also added flights from its hubs to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Comiso, and is offering seven new destinations from London Stansted. You can find a list of all these new routes and more here.


EasyJet has announced the establishment of a second German hub, to be based in Hamburg. Three additional planes from early 2014 will increase the number of destinations from the city from 6 to 21. At the same time, the airline will add another aircraft in Berlin, allowing for increased frequency between existing routes from Schönefeld.

The airline also plans a new base in Naples to open next spring, connecting primarily with northern European and Grecian destinations.

EasyJet’s network grows ever wider, as the airline continues to open new routes to far-flung destinations, now offering direct flights to Reykjavik, Romania, Norway, Moscow, and even Tel Aviv. At the same time, it is deepening its connections to existing destinations, doubling inner-UK coverage, for example, to Jersey or Isle of Man.
