Ryanair (Dublin) has announced significant growth for Scotland with three new routes between Edinburgh and London (Stansted), Glasgow and London (Stansted) and Glasgow and Dublin (three times daily), as well as a new base at Glasgow International (Ryanair’s 69th in total).
Ryanair’s existing once daily flight from Glasgow Prestwick to Dublin will now switch to Glasgow International as part of an expanded three times daily business service between Glasgow and Dublin. Despite this switch Ryanair remains committed to its long standing base at Prestwick where the airline has a major maintenance facility and is currently in discussions with Glasgow Prestwick and the Scottish Government, its new owners, to explore growth opportunities to/from Prestwick Airport.
From October 26, 2014, Ryanair will base three Boeing 737-800s at Edinburgh, one at Glasgow (International) and one at Glagow (Prestwick).

The new routes will operate from its London Gatwick, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and Belfast bases to destinations across the UK and Europe.
There are four new additions to London Gatwick’s schedule with Jersey, Paris, and Newcastle strengthening easyJet’s unrivalled business network out of the airport. Important connections between London and Newcastle will be provided through new 6 per week services. Flights to Brittany, a region of France popular with British holidaymakers, will also add to the airline’s comprehensive range of leisure destinations.
Further choice is also being offered from Belfast International Airport with affordable flights to Bordeaux and Jersey. There are also four new routes launching in Scotland which will provide sun seekers with even more choice for travel further afield to both Heraklion and Bodrum from Edinburgh Airport or the option to fly to Split and Kos from Glasgow International Airport.
