Routes 2012: Ryanair confirms Lublin Airport presence

Irish budget carrier Ryanair has revealed it will launch flights from the new Lublin Airport in Poland as it further expands its activities in the expanding air transport market in the country.

The move marks an intensification of its direct competition with rival Wizz Air.

The low-cost carrier has confirmed it will offer three times weekly link to London Stansted from December 18th, 2012 and twice weekly flights to Dublin from December 18th, 2012, becoming only the second airline to announce services to the facility, currently still under construction.

Previously a military airstrip, Lublin Airport is being developed into a commercial airport with a single runway and terminal with a capacity of 1.1 million passengers per annum.

It is due to be completed in October 2012.
