Ryanair will be increasing the frequency of their flights in Malaga

Ryanair will be increasing the frequency of their flights at Malaga airport, from 21 to 28, and in another five destinations as well: Grand Canary (from six flights to nine), Ibiza (from 14 to 21), Palma de Mallorca (from 21 to 35), Seville (from 21 to 28) and Tenerife (from 6 to 8).

The airline will also be opening, as from April, six new routes at Barcelona airport, where they will base thirteen airplanes, three more than the ones there now, with the aim to transport 5.8 million passengers at El Prat in 2012, a considerable increase compared to the 2.5 million of 2010, after the closure of Spanair.

To be precise, Ryanair will be flying from El Prat to Alicante, Bilbao, Stockholm, Hamburg, Menorca and Munich (Memmingen).

This way, the Irish airline will be adding more than 190 weekly flights in El Prat, from where they operate 39 routes (16 domestic) and expect to sustain 5.800 jobs in Catalonia, where they plan to transport nine million travellers in 2012.
