Ryanair has announced that from next month it will operate two weekly flights out of Manchester Airport to Lviv, Ukraine.

The airline said that from November 5 the route will continue to help them grow traffic and tourism across Europe, and aid with the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Lviv is a UNESCO-listed city that has brightly coloured buildings and is quickly becoming a popular city break destination.

Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness, said: “As Europe’s No.1 airline, Ryanair remains committed to re-building Europe’s aviation and tourism industry by restoring connectivity and growing its network of passengers to over 225 million by 2026.

"As Ryanair takes delivery of 55 additional Boeing 737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft this winter, we are delighted to add this new route from Manchester to Lviv."

To celebrate the new route, Ryanair has launched a £19.99 seat sale for travel until March 2022.

Holidaygoers must book their tickets by midnight on Thursday October 21 to take advantage of the bargain tickets.

Tickets to Lviv can be booked via the Ryanair website.
