RYANAIR have brought some festive cheer to Bournemouth Airport announcing plans to base another Boeing 737-800 aircraft at the airport and adding another four routes to their schedule.

The move is also expected to increase the airline’s passenger footfall through the airport to 650,000 a year.

The four new routes will be to Furteventura, Ibiza, Malta and Valencia, with increased frequencies to Alicante, Malaga and Palma starting in March 2010.
