RYANAIR LAUNCHES 5 NEW BRUSSELS ROUTES FOR SUMMER 2023

RYANAIR LAUNCHES 5 NEW BRUSSELS ROUTES FOR SUMMER 2023

1 NEW AIRCRAFT (16 TOT.) AND $1.6BN INVESTMENT IN BRUSSELS CHARLEROI

Ryanair, Belgium’s no.1 airline, today (17 Jan) announced its Summer 2023 schedule from its 2 Brussels airports
(Charleroi & Zaventem) with 5 new routes from Charleroi to sunshine hotspots like Asturias and Nantes, as well as
exciting city destinations like Cluj, Iasi and Lodz.

Ryanair’s Brussels Summer 2023 schedule will deliver:
• 16 based aircraft ($1.6bn invest) in Charleroi
• 5 new routes from Charleroi to Asturias, Cluj, Iasi, Lodz and Nantes
• 121 total routes to/from Brussels
• Increased freq. on 30+ popular routes, incl. Dublin, Girona, Malaga, Milan, Pisa, and Turin
• Supporting over 7,000 jobs, incl. almost 500 highly paid pilot & cabin crew jobs

The addition of one new based aircraft at Charleroi (from 15 to 16) for 2023 – another $100m investment – shows
Ryanair’s commitment to growth and recovery for Belgium, which has consistently enjoyed Ryanair’s efficient, low-cost operations over the last 25+ years.

As confirmed last week, Ryanair will not re-open its Zaventem base for S2023 due to Zaventem’s decision to raise
prices by 11% in 2023, while many other EU airports are lowering prices to recover traffic lost during Covid (or are
freezing charges to stimulate passenger growth). Ryanair will continue to operate 12 high frequency routes to/from
Zaventem on aircraft based outside Belgium in its Brussels S2023 schedule.

Brussels’ citizens/visitors can now book a well-deserved Summer break enjoying Ryanair’s lowest fares to the widest
choice of destinations, incl. these exciting 5 new routes to/from Charleroi for Summer 2023 on Ryanair.com.

Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:
“As Belgium’s No. 1 airline, Ryanair is pleased to announce our new Brussels schedule for Summer 2023, with 5 new
routes to Asturias, Cluj, Iasi, Lodz and Nantes, offering Brussels citizens/visitors even more choice for their summer
holidays at the lowest fares in Europe.

This new 2023 schedule will see 1 new based aircraft (16 total) in Charleroi, representing a further $100m investment
in Brussels ($1.6bn total) as Ryanair continues to deliver more traffic, more jobs, and lower fares than any other airline
for Belgium.

We regret that we cannot share good news for Zaventem as a result of their crazy decision to increase hike prices by
11% from April 2023. Customers can still book Ryanair’s low fares on 12 routes to/from Brussels Zaventem on aircraft
based outside Belgium.

We look forward to welcoming millions of Belgian customers/visitors onboard our flights to/from both Brussels
Charleroi and Zaventem Airports this Summer.”
