European low-cost carrier Ryanair has announced that it will open a new base at Toulouse Blagnac Airport as part of its Winter 2019 schedule.

Two Boeing 737-800 aircraft will be based in Toulouse and the carrier will add eleven new routes from the French airport.

In addition to the airline’s existing nine routes, the carrier will start to offer services from Toulouse to new destinations including Budapest, Luxembourg, Palermo, Porto and Valencia. New domestic services to Marseille and Lille will be operated on a daily basis. In total, Ryanair will offer 20 routes from Toulouse.

We are very pleased that Ryanair is strengthening its presence in Toulouse. The opening of a base with two aircraft will allow to develop the offer of the company from the Pink City. The 11 new routes announced by Ryanair are also excellent news for the attractiveness of Occitanie in Europe.Philippe Crébassa, Chairman of the Board of Toulouse-Blagnac Airport

Toulouse Blagnac Airport currently is a hub for the Spanish low-cost airline Volotea and a focus city for both Air France and Easyjet.

Ryanair operates an all-Boeing fleet of more than 400 Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The airline’s largest base is located at London Stansted Airport. In 2019, the low-cost carrier will add further operational bases at Berlin Tegel and London Southend, as well as at Marseille and Bordeaux in France.
