Mr Barton said: “We are currently carrying out the single biggest investment in our 80-year history to meet continued demand from passengers and give them the best travel experience possible.
“Our continued work with airline partners means that passengers now have more choice of destinations than ever before. We look forward to continuing to work with Ryanair as we grow and transform.”
