AN AIRLINE has axed six routes from two Scottish airports to destinations across Europe.

Ryanair has cut one route from Prestwick Airport for next year, while five routes to and from Edinburgh have also been scrapped.

The airline will no longer be operating flights between Prestwick and Marseille.

Ryanair has also withdrawn routes from Edinburgh to Carcassone, Nîmes, and Poitiers in France, Santiago de Compostela in Spain, and Turin in Italy.

A spokesman for Ryanair said the move comes after a review of seasonal routes.

They said: "To ensure that Ryanair continues to offer passengers low fares on an exciting and diverse range of routes we undertake seasonal route reviews to make way for the development of potentially stronger and more popular routes across our network.

"These six routes will not be carried forward to the summer 2024 season. However, Ryanair’s Scottish customers can still enjoy low fares to the widest choice of exciting destinations when booking their summer 2024 getaways."
