  • Ryanair to add a sixth aircraft to its BHX fleet from summer 2023
Girona and Pisa will be added to Ryanair’s Birmingham (BHX) routes from summer 2023, the Irish carrier announced today.
Ryanair also plans to add a sixth aircraft to its BHX-based fleet next summer - a major commitment to the West Midlands transport hub which will create 180 direct jobs and support a total of 1,700 local jobs.
This expansion takes Ryanair’s total investment in BHX to $600m ($100m per based aircraft) and the destinations on offer to customers to 42.
Ryanair’s Birmingham summer 2023 schedule includes:
  • six based aircraft - two of which will be Boeing 737 8-200 “Gamechanger” aircraft
  • 42 routes including two new ones - Girona and Pisa
  • More than 350 flights a week from BHX
  • Increased frequencies on 10 routes including Bergamo, Dublin, Madrid, Porto, and Palma
Eddie Wilson, Ryanair’s chief executive, speaking from BHX, said: “Our record-breaking Summer’23 schedule supports the tourism recovery and local economy with over 1,700 high-paid local jobs.”
Nick Barton, BHX chief executive, added: "We are so thrilled Ryanair is significantly expanding its Birmingham offering. Basing a sixth aircraft here will increase options for customers, create jobs and boost the West Midlands economy."
Boeing “gamechanger” aircraft can carry 4% more passengers while burning 16% less fuel with 40% less noise.
