The airline is adding 200,000 seats to its flights to the Balearic Islands and Malta in July, August and September 2021.
Madrid, 25 June 2021. Ryanair, Europe’s leading airline, has announced 200,000 extra seats from the UK to the Balearic cities of Ibiza and Palma, and to Malta, after these islands have made it onto the UK’s green list destinations.
Ryanair also called on Grant Shapps to add the Canary Islands, Cyprus, and the Greek Islands to the list immediately given their very similar coronavirus infection rates, which are low and similar to those of the recent additions.
To celebrate this decision, Ryanair has launched an promotion of seats from €19.99 until the end of September 2021. This promotion will be available until midnight on Sunday, June 27, on the Ryanair.com website.
Ryanair’s Dara Brady, said: “This announcement is a step in the right direction and while we welcome the addition of the Balearics and Malta to the UK’s green list, we urge the Government to add equally safe destinations such as Cyprus, the Canaries and the Greek Islands immediately. We also request an immediate decision on allowing vaccinated UK and EU citizens to travel freely between the UK and the EU without restrictions.
We are pleased to announce 200,000 extra seats to Ibiza, Palma and Malta throughout July, August and September. UK Ryanair customers can book a well-earned summer holiday at destinations such as the Balearics, safe in the knowledge that if their plans change, they can move their travel dates up to two times with a zero-change fee until the end of December 2021”.
