Bologna Airport Aviation Business Director, Antonello Bonolis, said:
“We have been living tough times and we have been holding on during this year and a half working together with our main partners to assure our passengers the widest possible network.
The cooperation with Ryanair has never stopped nor even diminished or weakened. On the contrary, we have shared our experiences to readjust a routes programme and to fit the emerging needs of the flying demand.
I have really appreciated the flexibility and the strong commitment I have always felt in Ryanair, and here we are: presenting together a rich brand new programme, looking forward the coming up Summer season, which will definitely see the recovery in the aviation industry.
Hopefully, thanks to massive vaccination, we will come back to fly, to enjoy our time reaching our favourite destinations or discovering some new options offered”.
