Budget airline Ryanair has announced the opening of its third Scottish base in Glasgow.

The airport will deliver one based aircraft, seven new winter routes and nine new routes for summer 2015.

The base will support more than 850 jobs at Glasgow International Airport and will have the capabilities to hold over 850,000 passengers each year.

The winter routes will include three daily flights to Dublin and London Stansted, with the summer routes linking the airport to cities in Poland, Greece and France.

The airline celebrated the opening of its base by launching flights from £9.99 for travel in November, December and January.

Maria Macken, Ryanair’s UK sales and marketing manager, said: “Ryanair is delighted to open its new base in Glasgow, offering customers seven new routes for winter and nine new routes for summer 2015, including three times daily services to Dublin and London Stansted, which will deliver over 850,000 passengers a year and support 850 'on-site' jobs at Glasgow International Airport."

Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport’s commercial director, said: “It is a real pleasure to officially welcome Ryanair to Glasgow Airport.

"The airline has ambitious plans for growth, particularly amongst Glasgow’s business community, which is why it is focused on opening at primary airports, such as Glasgow."

He added: "We are already seeing strong demand for Ryanair’s services amongst our customers and are committed to working with the airline to continue to enhance our route offering and deliver services based on demand.

"We look forward to working closely with the team at Ryanair to ensure it enjoys success and growth at Glasgow Airport.”
