Ryanair has added 24 new holiday destinations to its UK flight network – including one from Bristol Airport.
The budget airline is rolling out the new routes from this summer, and will fly direct to Vienna from Bristol Airport.
According to Bristol Airport’s flight search tool, direct flights are already available to the Austrian capital, but not with Ryanair.
The only provider of this route currently is listed as Lauda, which describes itself as ‘Austria’s low-fare airline’.
Of the two dozen destinations announced today (Thursday, July 9), 11 were winter destinations which have been extended into the summer.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office eased its advice against all non-essential international travel on Saturday, July 4, listing destinations which are now exempt from this rule.
Austria was among the countries listed as exempt, but travellers should be aware of restrictions once they get to the other side.
According to the UK government’s travel advice, people entering Austria now need to “present a medical certificate which confirms that you have had a negative molecular biological SARS-CoV-2 test in the last four days”.
Anyone arriving from the UK who fails to provide this will be required to self-isolate for 14 days after arrival.
