Two additional aircraft will be based at Edinburgh Airport for summer 2022, increasing the fleet to 10, five of which will be Boeing 737 8-200 “Gamechanger” aircraft which have four per cent more seats, burn 16 per cent less fuel and create 40 per cent less noise emissions.
Ryanair said it represented an investment of over a billion euros and would support 300 highly-paid aviation jobs and 3,000 indirect jobs at Edinburgh airport, including 60 new jobs associated with the extra aircraft and around new 500 indirect jobs.
It said the expanded summer operation would give holidaymakers an abundance of choice to top European destinations in Greece, Spain, Italy, and Croatia and also give Scottish tourism a much-needed boost after two lost summers.
And Ryanair combined the announcement with a call to the UK government to scrap Airport Passenger Duty (APD) immediately for all travel saying that while the proposed cut is a step in the right direction, it is simply not enough.
