13 Nov 2020

Ryanair, Europe’s no. 1 airline, today (13 Nov) announced additional domestic flights from 4th Dec, following the UK Govt’s ‘travel window’ announcement permitting students to travel home for Christmas.

The student ‘travel window’ states that universities should revert to online teaching to allow students to travel home between 3rd – 9th Dec and Ryanair is delighted to facilitate students returning to their families during this period. As part of our commitment to get students home for Christmas we are pleased to announce a new Edinburgh- Stansted route operating twice weekly between 4th Dec-8th Jan.

Ryanair also serves 3 other UK domestic routes that will allow students travel home ahead of the busy Christmas season – Derry – Liverpool; Belfast – Stansted & Edinburgh – Derry.

To help families reunite this winter, Ryanair has launched a special seat sale with fares available from just £19.99, for travel from 4th Dec – 8th Jan, allowing students to travel home as well as return to university again in the New Year.


Ryanair’s Alejandra Ruiz said:

“We welcome this ‘travel window’ guidance which allows students the opportunity to fly home to their families and friends, in advance of the busy Christmas travel rush.

To celebrate, we are releasing seats for sale from just £19.99 for travel between 4th Dec-8th Jan, which are available for booking until midnight on Monday, 16th Nov. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
