Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair has announced that it will launch 23 new routes from Greece to European destinations and also reinstate flights to Chania on Crete for the 2018 summer season.

More specifically, in response to a significant three-year airport charges reduction for new routes at Athens International Airport, the airline will include 13 new routes from Athens to destinations in Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Denmark and Finland (Baden-Baden, Billund, Frankfurt, Gdansk, Katowice, Krakow, Lappeenranta, Lodz, Memmingen, Poznan, Rzeszow, Vilnius and Wroclaw).

The company is also planning to add a fifth aircraft to its base in Athens, an investment of $100 million.

“Ryanair’s Athens network will include a total of 31 routes to 14 countries and will deliver 3 million customers through Athens Airport next year,” the carrier’s chief commercial officer, David O’Brien, said during a press conference in the Greek capital on Wednesday.

The 2018 summer schedule will also include five new routes from/to Thessaloniki and additional routes from/to Mykonos, Corfu, Kefalonia and Santorini. To celebrate the launch of the 2018 summer program, Ryanair has released a seats sale at low prices, which can be found on its website.
