Ryanair, the low cost carrier, will be operating out of Bournemouth airport for the 2013 winter sun holiday season. In 2010 Ryanair stopped flying out of Bournemouth for the winter due to, it says, air passenger tax duty.
This year though, it will be flying six routes to winter sun destinations including Tenerife, operating nine weekly flights, with a capacity of 3500 seats in and out of Bournemouth.

This year the airline resumed flights out of the airport in March, which is later than previous years when they started operating in February, blaming oil prices for the later than usual start.
