Ryanair re-establishes city’s air link with Stockholm


Irish budget carrier Ryanair has announced another new route from Liverpool with news it is to commence flights to Stockholm for winter 2021/22.

Twice weekly flights are due to start on November 2, departing Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) on Saturdays and Tuesdays during the winter season to Stockholm Arlanda airport.

This latest route will be a further addition to the list of European countries served direct from Liverpool. This further commitment to Liverpool is Ryanair’s fifth new route to be announced from the airport over the past six months, with a new flight to the Greek island of Kos announced just two weeks ago.

Paul Winfield, LJLA’s director of aviation development, said: “International travel restrictions are set to be lifted shortly and throughout the pandemic we have continued to plan ahead with our airline partners, remaining confident that passengers will return to international travel over the coming weeks and months.

“This latest news from Ryanair of their further commitment to Liverpool is more great news for travellers from across the region with a direct link from here to Sweden for the first time in many years.”

Ryanair launched its first flights from Liverpool to Stockholm in 2008.

Stockholm is a vibrant city positioned in the heart of Scandinavia. Built on 14 different islands it is a mixture of history, modern design and nature.

In March Ryanair unveiled a new route from LJLA to Zadar, in Croatia, and last September announced a link to Košice, in eastern Slovakia.
