Ryanair launches service to Pisa

The low cost carrier is adding service three times a week

Low-cost airline Ryanair announced that from Oct. 30, 2018, it will launch a new regular service from Václav Havel Airport Prague to Pisa, Italy. The service will use a Boeing 737 three times a week: on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Thanks to the new line, passengers will have a year-round connection to the Tuscany region in Italy’s center. During the summer season, Czech Airlines also flies to Pisa twice a week.

The new line can serve approximately 53,000 passengers in both directions per year.

Ticket sales have already been launched on www.ryanair.com.

Pisa is known for its leaning tower, built in 1372. The town is also home to 20 historical churches and other tourist attractions. The town is also a gateway to the Tuscany region, which includes the city of Florence, several seaside resorts and a large wine and agriculture area is known for its cuisine.

At the start of February, Ryanair announced a route to Amman, Jordan, that will also start a the end of October. It will run as part of the Winter 2018 schedule.

Currently, Ryanair has 15 year-round destinations from Prague. The carrier established a base in Prague in October 2016.

Ryanair is an Irish low-cost airline founded in 1984, headquartered in Swords in County Dublin, Ireland. Its primary operational bases are at Dublin and London Stansted airports. In 2016, Ryanair was the largest European airline by scheduled passengers flown and carried more international passengers than any other airline.

The backbone of the Ryanair fleet is the Boeing 737-800, which accounts for 419 of the carrier’s 420 planes. The other is a Boeing 737-700 used for charter flights and training.

Václav Havel Airport Prague saw more than 15 million passengers for the first time in 2017, making it the most successful year ever. The record was set Dec. 21 shortly after midnight.

The airport became one of the fastest growing airports in Europe for airports handling 10 million to 25 million passengers a year. The increase was caused by the growing attractiveness of Prague as a destination for foreign visitors and the willingness of Czechs to spend more money on their travels abroad.

In the future, the airport hopes to increase its capacity to 21 million people per year.
