The low-fares airline is adding four new Boeing 737-800 aircraft and six new routes (57 in total) from its base at Brussels Charleroi airport to Ibiza, Kaunas, Krakow, Nador, Seville and Zadar from March 2010.

The move brings Ryanair’s investment in Brussels (Charleroi) to 12 aircraft worth over €540m, the airline said.
