Ryanair has announced it will open a new base at Bucharest Airport from October this year.

The low-cost Irish carrier will base three aircraft at the location and offer two new routes - to Athens and Timisoara.

The decision will also allow Ryanair to operate more flights to Brussels, Dublin and Milan, which will deliver 1.4 million passengers a year to the Romanian capital.

The carrier will offer a total of 90 flights per week.

Ryanair also launched a new Romanian website.

In Bucharest, Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary said: “Our Bucharest winter schedule includes daily services to London, Madrid and Rome, making Ryanair the ideal choice for both business and leisure customers.”
