In 2005 Ryanair began daily flights from London Stansted Airport and in subsequent years flights from Dublin Airport. The Stansted route flew 110,000 passengers within 15 months whilst the Dublin route flew 21,000 in 9 months. The airline left the airport in October 2007.Helitt Lineas Aereas also left the airport in January 2013. This led to a limitation of scheduled operations to the summer season. However, in 2016, Ryanair announced its return to Vitoria with year-round services to Bergamo and Tenerife.
