Ryanair is to extend connecting flights at Milan Bergamo airport by adding 25 routes.
The move provides passengers with an enhanced choice of 50 connecting services and the ability to book and transfer directly onto connecting Ryanair flights.
The new routes include Hamburg, Porto, Bratislava, Budapest, Prague, Thessaloniki and Vilnius and follow last month’s introduction of Milan flight connections by the low cost carrier.
More connections are to be introduced at other airports across the airline’s network later this year.
The Milan move follows Ryanair bidding for Italian flag carrier Alitalia which went into administration in May, triggering a €600 million Italian government cash injection to keep it flying.
Investment firm Greybull Capital, which injected £165 million into Monarch last October, is also tipped as a potential suitor for Alitalia, according to reports earlier this week.
Ryanair chief commercial officer David O’Brien said: “Ryanair is pleased to extend our connecting flights service at Milan Bergamo Airport with another 25 routes added, offering our customers even more low fare choice with 50 connecting routes in total – potentially rising to 300.
“With 17 of these new routes connecting onto other Italian destinations we will continue to make regional Italy more accessible for European customers in advance of developing more direct routes to the regions in the coming years.
“Customers flying on these routes will be able to transfer onto their next flight at Milan Bergamo without having to go landside, and will have their bags checked through to their final destination.
“This connecting flights service, delivered under year four of our ‘Always Getting Better’ programme, is now available on 50 Milan Bergamo routes, as well as 10 routes via Rome Fiumicino airport and will be rolled out at other Ryanair airports throughout our network, with even more routes to be added in the coming weeks and months.
“In addition, Ryanair.com also sells 20 long haul Air Europa routes to North and South America.”
