Albania will become the 37th country within Ryanair’s network, and will grant immediate access to key inbound tourism markets such as, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania Sweden and the UK – whilst also providing competitive fares and increased connectivity for Albanians who want to visit home or friends and family abroad. These exciting new Winter routes are only the beginning of what Ryanair can do to support the Albanian Government in delivering transformational growth within the tourism industry. Countries need major airlines of scale like Ryanair to deliver capacity growth –Ryanair has consistently and successfully demonstrated this in European economies which rely on tourism such as Spain, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, and Malta.

We have worked closely with our partners here at Tirana Airport to launch these 17 new routes and hope to strengthen the relationship over time as we work together to drive inbound tourism and connectivity to Albania.
