Ryanair wants to carry 1.9 million passengers through Faro

Low-cost airline Ryanair wants to carry 1.9 million passengers through Faro airport in 2016, although it does not intend to open any new routes to the Algarve next year, the company said on Thursday.

The company had carried about 1.8 million passengers in and out of Faro up until July 2015.


The Irish airline is already responsible for about 30% of all flights at that airport, but is said there was room for growth and that Germany was one of its main targets for the future said Jose Espartero, head of sales and marketing for the Iberian Peninsula.


Even though it is not expecting to open any new routes next year Ryanair is going to increase the number of flights between Faro and the UK as well as to Ireland and Germany.


The company presently has seven aircraft based in faro, but Jose Espartero said he believed the number could rise shortly.
