Ryanair will open 11 new routes in Porto next summer. This strengthening, which is only possible due to the reduction in airport charges, decided by the Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority (Autoridade Nacional de Aviação Civil-ANAC), will make it possible to get two new aircraft and create 120 jobs.

Thus, as of the summer of 2023, Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport will be connected to Bristol and Leeds (England), Castellón (Spain), Maastricht (Netherlands), Nimes and Strasbourg (France), Shannon (Ireland), Stockholm (Sweden), Trapani and Turin (Italy) and Warsaw (Poland).

During a press conference, Michael O'Leary, the CEO of the Ryanair Group, stressed that all this investment is only possible because ANAC decided to lower airport charges for Porto.

For the opening of new routes, the airline will get, next year, 51 new B737 aircraft, which, according to the group's CEO, are "quieter, more efficient in fuel consumption and much more environmentally friendly".
