Back to news


Ryanair's Chief Executive Michael O'Leary together with Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond officialy opened the second 6,000 square metre hangar at the Glasgow Prestwick airport.

Ryanair grows successfully in Scotland planning for more cheap flights to this region.

Prestwick winning in other bases tight competition

Five other bases across Europe were striving to win this deal. Eventually, Glasgow Prestwick (PIK) got it with a great support from the Scottish government. The second maintenance hangar at Prestwick covers 6,000 square meters and will provide 200 new engineering jobs. The base will now be maintaining most of the airline's 260 a­ircraft fleet.
