Ryanair has launched a new route from Glasgow to Frankfurt, with a daily service beginning in October, as part of its extended winter 2017 schedule, which will deliver 1.4m customers at Glasgow International Airport.

Ryanair’s Glasgow winter 2017 schedule will deliver:

• 18 routes in total
• 1.4m customers p.a. (+ 24%)

Ryanair’s Glasgow summer 2017 schedule is attracting record bookings, with more frequencies to sun destinations for summer family holidays, including new routes to Lisbon and Valencia, and an even better customer experience, as Ryanair continues to roll out its “Always Getting Better” improvements.

Ryanair celebrated its new Glasgow-Frankfurt route by releasing seats for sale across its European network at prices starting from just £9.99 for travel in March and April. These low fare seats are available for booking on the website until midnight Thursday (2 Mar).

Ryanair’s Head of Communications Robin Kiely said: “We are pleased to announce a new route from Glasgow to Frankfurt am Main, our third new Glasgow winter 2017 route following Krakow and Madrid, with a daily service starting in October. Scottish customers and visitors can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for their summer or winter holidays, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight with Ryanair.

To celebrate our new Glasgow–Frankfurt route, we are releasing seats for sale from just £9.99 for travel in March and April,which are available for booking until midnight Thursday (2 Mar).”
