Ryanair will close its two routes from Blackpool (daily to Dublin and thrice-weekly to Girona) on Jan. 4 following the airport's decision to impose a £10 ($14.97) "Airport Development Fee" on all passengers from Jan. 5. Blackpool is the fourth airport from which the LCC has withdrawn or threatened to withdraw all services, following Valencia (ATWOnline, Oct. 27), Fuerteventura (ATWOnline, Nov. 20) and Maastricht (ATWOnline, Nov. 21).
