Ryanair announced the summer schedule for Portugal, including one more route from Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport: Porto-Bergerac (France). The Irish airline thus has 70 destinations available from the Invicta.

After cancelling 19 summer routes in Lisbon, accusing the Government and TAP of blocking “slots” at Huberto Delgado airport, Ryanair launched its summer schedule with four new destinations in other Portuguese airports. In addition to Porto, this operation includes Faro and Ponta Delgada.

Porto gains another connection to France: Bergerac, a medieval city located in Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The commercial operation will begin from the 2nd of April. In addition to this, Ryanair promotes 12 more routes to French destinations from Porto (Clermont Ferrand, Lille, Tours Val de Loire, Dole, Paris Beauvais, Paris-Vatry, Marseille, Bordeaux, Toulouse, La Rochelle, Carcassonne and Brive).

In total, the Irish company will operate 147 routes during the summer from Portuguese airports, connecting cities and regions across Europe.
