FIVE international routes will start flying from Bournemouth Airport with Ryanair next week.

Ryanair starts weekly (Sunday) flights to the popular Spanish island of Gran Canaria on Sunday, October 31, while those looking for a city break can choose twice-weekly flights to Hungary’s spa city of Budapest (Wednesday and Sunday), or explore 1,000 years of history in Ireland’s capital, Dublin (Thursday and Sunday), also from October 31.

Flights to Lisbon will start from Tuesday, November 2, flying twice weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The following day from November 3, Ryanair will start a twice-weekly (Wednesday and Saturday) service to the beautiful city of Wroclaw, known as the ‘Venice of Poland’ for its maze of islands and bridges on the river Oder.

Steve Gill, managing director of Bournemouth Airport, said: “These five new routes from Ryanair are all great additions to Bournemouth Airport’s growing international network. Whether holidaymakers are looking for winter sun in the Canary Islands or city breaks in some of Europe’s most historic cities, there’s even more choice available from their local airport.”

The new routes now mean that Ryanair fly to 13 different destinations across five countries from Bournemouth Airport in its 2021/22 schedule.

They include Spain (Alicante, Girona (Barcelona), Gran Canaria, Malaga, Murcia, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife), Ireland (Dublin), Hungary (Budapest), Poland (Krakow and Wroclaw) and Portugal (Faro and Lisbon).

In total, Bournemouth Airport has announced 31 destinations in 14 countries for 2021/22.
