Three new routes – to Malaga, Malta and Naples – will launch in April as part of the low-cost carrier’s summer schedule.
Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely said: “We’re pleased to announce Ryanair’s low fares have arrived at Exeter, our newest airport and 21st in the UK.
“Our three new routes to Malaga, Malta and Naples start in summer 2019, each operating twice weekly, ensuring customers in the Devon region can book low fare flights to the sun.”
In total the airline will offer six weekly flights from the airport, welcoming a maximum of 80,000 customers.
Exeter Airport managing director, Matt Roach, said: “This is a significant vote of confidence in the continued growth of Exeter Airport and we are delighted to be welcoming Ryanair for the very first time.
“These routes are popular destinations and offer customers even more choice and greater connectivity from their local airport.”
