So much has changed — domestically and in the world at large — since the UK government released the Integrated Review and MoD Command Paper in early 2021.
Ryanair announces two new East Midlands routes
Ryanair has announced that it will add two new routes (34 in total) from East Midlands Airport to Barcelona (Reus) and Palma in July which will increase Ryanair's traffic at East Midlands to over 2 million per year and sustain 2,000 local jobs.
Ryanair will close its East Midlands to Paris (Beauvais) route from July to accommodate these two new routes.
The company has also announced that it will not be able to fly to Paris (Beauvais) airport between June 3 and June 10 as the airport will be closed. The company says the closure is necessary so that the airport can upgrade its landing systems to allow flights to land safely in adverse weather conditions.
Spokesman, Stephen McNamara said: "We wish to apologise to passengers for any inconvenience suffered as a result of this one week closure of Paris (Beauvais) between 3rd and 10th June. These essential upgrade works will benefit all passengers in the long-term and will help to ensure that Ryanair passengers suffer fewer adverse weather related disruptions on flights to/from Paris (Beauvais)."
