We welcome the growth in the Ryanair programme for winter 2016 following strong demand for flights over the last 12 months. The introduction of a new route to Gran Canaria will widen the airline's destination choice to 12 routes across 6 countries, whilst the continuation of Faro flights into the winter will be welcomed by overseas home owners and holidaymakers alike.In addition, the growth in flight frequencies to Alicante, Krakow, Lanzarote and Tenerife will mean that next winter will see the largest ever winter Ryanair programme from LBA serving Leeds and the wider Yorkshire region.
