Its Birmingham based fleet will increase to five aircraft, two of which will be new Boeing 737 8-200 'Gamechanger' planes, which offer 4% more seats, burn 16% less fuel and create 40% less noise emissions.

The Irish carrier’s investment of more than $500m ($100m per aircraft) at Birmingham will support 150 aviation jobs and more than 1,850 indirect jobs in the local area.

Ryanair’s Birmingham Winter 2022/23 schedule will deliver 34 routes in total and more than 280 flights a week. Ryanair’s director of route development, Ray Kelliher, said: “We’re delighted to make this $100m further investment in Birmingham largely thanks to the hard work and support of the Airport’s management team.”

Nick Barton, chief executive of Birmingham Airport, added: “We are thrilled Ryanair is adding to its Birmingham based fleet of aircraft as we toast 35 years of its operation here. This long-term move will give customers greater choice and boost economic growth in our region.”
