Scots air price war heats up.

AIRLINE giants Ryanair and easyJet sent their ticket-cost scrap soaring yesterday by adding routes from Glasgow Prestwick and Edinburgh airports.

Ryanair will now operate 25 flights from Prestwick after adding Budapest, Hungary, Kaunas in Lithuania and the 45-minute hop to Belfast City Airport, in Northern Ireland, from October 30.

And the no-frills airline will re-open services from Prestwick to Grenoble in France for the ski season.

But easyJet has hit back with new flights from Edinburgh to Krakow and Gdansk, both Poland, from October 29 and 30.

And it said its fares are now the most transparent due to its updated website.

Ryanair added: "These new routes deliver savings of pounds 12m compared to easyJet's high fares."
