“Thanks to the new Ryanair routes we are able to reach a new market, Portugal, never directly connected to date, we increase the number of airports reached in Sicily with Comiso and we strengthen relations with the Israeli market with Tel Aviv, which is strategic both for incoming and international business, both to facilitate relations in the aerospace field. A fundamental link also for religious aspects, favoring outgoing for example to the Holy Land. From Brindisi we resume a historical connection, Barcelona, much appreciated in the past for incoming and outgoing and we stabilize the connection to Genoa, guaranteeing an annual service between two areas that are difficult to connect.
