Lisbon Airport – Ryanair route from London-Stansted
With initially four Ryanair routes to Lisbon from the airports of London-Stansted, Frankfurt-Hahn, Brussels-Charleroi and Paris-Beauvais, in total Ryanair will operate some 50 weekly flights to and from Lisbon Airport – LIS.
Out of the 4 new Ryanair Lisbon connections, the London-Stansted to Lisbon schedule will be far the most comprehensive.
From London-Stansted, a plane will leave for Lisbon every day at 07.15 in the morning and another flight will be heading from Stansted to Lisbon departing at 17.50 in the afternoon.
The 14 weekly flights to Lisbon from Stansted-London will create quite an additional capacity from the London area to the Portuguese capital. Introducing this many flights for the winter season is quite a bold move by Ryanair who has great expectations for Lisbon.
Ryanair already operates flights out of Faro Airport and Porto Airport in Portugal.

The new Ryanair Paris-Beauvais route to Lisbon Airport will be catering for the approximately 250.000 Portuguese citizens living in Paris – as well as the many French tourists to the Portuguese capital.

In a distance of approximately 120 km from Frankfurt, the small airport of Frankfurt-Hahn is a well-developed Ryanair destination.
