New flights from budget airline
[6th June 2008]
Low fares airline Ryanair has announced what it describes as its biggest ever single expansion.
The low cost airline is launching 12 new flights from the UK and a total of 40 new European routes for winter 2008. This includes new flights announced last week from Glasgow Prestwick airport to Tenerife, Faro and Malaga, and from Bournemouth airport to Paris and Milan.
The new flights announced this week include seven new routes from London airports. London Luton airport gets new flights to Beziers, Derry, Kaunas, Rzeszow and Szczecin in Poland, and Trapani in Sicily. From Stansted airport there are new flights to Madrid.
Outside the capital three other airports also get new Ryanair flights. Bristol airport will have three new routes, to Marrakesh in Morocco, and Gdansk and Szczecin in Poland. From Manchester airport there will be new flights to Brussels, and from Birmingham airport to Frankfurt.
While other airlines are busy increasing fuel surcharges, Ryanair is busy guaranteeing the lowest fares and no fuel surcharges ever on 40 new European routes. Passengers at 12 European bases are set to benefit from our biggest ever single expansion, and these 40 new routes will ensure passenger savings of £150m compared to the high fares levied by Europes fuel surcharging flag carriers, comments Ryanair spokesperson, Bridget Dowling.
Outside the UK the other airports getting new Ryanair flights include Bremen, Frankfurt and Rome. The new flights start in the week beginning 27th October, and to celebrate its expansion Ryanair is offering 250,000 one-way seats for £10.
