Ryanair Adds Madrid Connection

Low-cost carrier Ryanair has said that it will add another route from Liverpool's John Lennon Airport (JLA).

From October 30th, the airline will fly to Madrid three times a week - on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The new service underlines Ryanair's commitment to the hub. In recent months the low-cost carrier has announced a number of new services from JLA, including routes to Stockholm, Belfast, Budapest, Bydgoszcz, Fuerteventura, Lodz, Tenerife, Grenoble, Salzburg and Valencia.

Vic Brodrick, the group commercial director for the company which operates JLA, commented: "For Ryanair to add yet another route from its Liverpool base is fantastic news for JLA and the north-west region.

"Madrid is a cosmopolitan capital and like all other Spanish destinations now available from JLA it will no doubt prove to be extremely popular."

Elaine Duff, Ryanair's deputy UK marketing manager, added: "We are delighted to be back with more great news for the people of Liverpool and the Merseyside."

The Lonely Planet describes Madrid as "Spain's headiest city" and adds: "Strangers quickly become friends, passion blooms in an instant, and visitors are swiftly addicted to the city's charms."
