The new flights are available to book from just £19.99 and will begin operating later this year, sitting alongside Ryanair’s offering of other city breaks that include Milan in Italy and Riga in Latvia.
The announcement follows the budget airline celebrating the opens of its new base at Newcastle International Airport after a £150million investment created over 60 new jobs.
Currently, Ryanair operates over 130 flights a week from the airport and the Director of Aviation Development, Leon McQuaid, has expressed his delight at the creation of new routes.
He said: “We are extremely pleased that Ryanair has chosen to operate even more destinations from Newcastle this year, further investing in the region and increasing the connectivity for the North East travelling public.
“These two new routes offer fantastic city break opportunities for our leisure passengers.
“On top of this, I am confident they will also be popular with local businesses that already do business, or are looking to develop business links, in the two cities.”
Ryanair’s Director of Digital & Marketing, Dara Brady, has revealed that customers who book early will have access to the lowest possible fare prices.
He commented: “As Europe’s No.1 airline, Ryanair is delighted to announce our Winter ‘22/23 schedule from Newcastle including two new routes to exciting destinations of Barcelona and Cork, both operating twice weekly from the end of October '22.
“We are pleased to offer Newcastle citizens more choices when choosing a destination for their Winter getaways and to also encourage Barcelona and Cork customers to book their next trip to Newcastle as soon as possible.
"To allow our customers to book early and at the lowest possible fares we have launched a limited-time seat sale with fares available from just £19.99 for travel from October ‘22 until March ’23, which must be booked by Friday, 10th of June 2022 at Ryanair.com.”
