Ryanair - New route - Faro - Glasgow Prestwick

Ryanair have today announced a new twice weekly route from Glasgow Prestwick to Faro operating Wednesdays and Sundays beginning 29th October 2008.

My guess is that having burnt their fingers with the Faro - Madrid Route last year which we desperate still need and before that Faro - Girona, Ryanair, are sticking to developing routes out of Faro where others have already paid for the route development. In this case, Globespan with their services from Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports.

I hope that this route is more successful and that Ryanair, as is often the case, do not cancel the service a couple of months later without announcement.

This could be a useful addition to services between the Algarve and Scotland, but be very careful booking to far in advance.
