Ryanair: New direct flights Rygge to Barcelona fall 2010

Ryanair starts direct flights from Rygge Airport to Barcelona's El Prat Airport three times a week from September 2nd 2010. This as Ryanair consolidates its traffic from one of Spain's main hubs.

Ryanair will extend its flights directly from the city's main airport. By placing 5 Boeing 737-800's here, it will start flights from Barcelona to 20 new destinations from September 2010. Ryanair has, until now, operated flights from Norway to Girona Airport a few hours north of the city.

This move from the Irish air carrier reflects the growing attention on Spanish cities as attractive holiday destinations for Norwegian travelers, and Ryanair competes with both Norwegian Air Shuttle and Scandinavian Airlines on flights to several airports on the Iberian peninsula.

Ryanair travelers will from September get to Barcelona more conveniently, by flying directly to the city's airport, and not to Girona Airport, an airport off the beaten tracks.
