A Spanish news website has announced that from January Ryanair will no longer operate flights between London, Milan, Tenerife and Santiago


Update: the article has now been altered to state that some of the London flights have been withdrawn leaving a less frequent service. I have edited the thread title accordingly.

A few alternatives. Fly with another airline from SCQ. Or fly via Madrid. Or from Vigo instead. Or my personal favourite: fly from A Coruna with Vueling and arrive at Heathrow rather than Stansted.
I agree A Coruña is a great option.ive done it twice now.Vuelling flight was half full each time.

Having done it once on my first Camino, I would prefer getting a root canal to flying on Ryanair through Stansted. Stansted is like a Walmart with airplanes.

Oh come on!

You flew Ryanair and still claim to have standards?

(At this point I would insert one of those smily/winky face things if I had the slightest idea how to do.)

Whilst I was apprehensive about flying with Ryanair I must admit that they were excellent i.e. they left on time and got me to Biarritz and back from Santiago on time and cheaply. After walking for 34 days all I wanted was an efficient way to get me home and Ryanair did that and therefore exceeded my expectations. If you think that Stansted Airport is bad, although it was efficient when I travelled, you should try Leeds/Bradford Airport!

Actually, I believe the article says that Ryanair is canceling only an additional flight to London-Stansted that has not yet gone into service: "por...renunciar **a una extra [ruta] que tenía prevista*** con Londres-Stansted" "by not going through with an additional [route] that it had planned with London-Stansted."

Because only a planned flight has been canceled, it seems that there will be no change to the present schedule of flights between Santiago and London.

I can recommend my dentist. She is so good I nearly fall asleep. Better than any flight, actually...

In defence of Ryanair, they have a shortage of planes because of the Boing 737Max problems.
