Ryanair opens routes from Kraków to Malmö and Gothenburg

In October 2017 Ryanair starts operating two new direct routes from Kraków to Sweden. Consequently Ryanair is back at Malmö Airport, greater Copenhagen's second largest airport, and the Irish low cost airline is also adding a route to Gothenburg Landvetter Airport. Passengers will be able to choose from three weekly departures from both Malmö and Gothenburg to the second largest Polish city, claimed to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

Ryanair is growing its operations in Kraków and opens 14 new routes from the Polish city to a number of destinations in Europe. Two of the destinations are Swedish; Malmö Airport, greater Copenhagens second largest airport, and Gothenburg Landvetter Airport on the Swedish west coast. There will be three weekly departures per week from each airport.

- We are very pleased to welcome Ryanair back to Malmö Airport. This new route proofs that our trend with increasingly growing passenger numbers continues after the record year of 2016. Malmö Airport is fast and efficient and we can offer our international passengers a smooth experience which is appreciated and saves time for travellers, says Peter Weinhandl, Airport Manager at Malmö Airport.

- We are pleased to offer the West Swedes an exciting experience in Krakow which is only a two hour flight away from Gothenburg Landvetter. The new route also means it will be a more convenient travel for those who want to visit family and friends in Poland , says Charlotte Ljunggren, Airport Director at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.

Krakow is said to be among the most beautiful cities in the world and is considered to be Poland's cultural capital. Krakow offer many historical sights, a hundred churches and fine art collections along with an exciting selection of food and affordable shopping.
