RYANAIR ANNOUNCES 13 NEW ROUTES FROM 4 UK BASES
AND STARTS FLIGHTS AT BELFAST CITY AIRPORT
Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, today (Wednesday, 25th July 2007) announced 13 new routes that will start in October from its Bristol, East Midlands, Liverpool and Glasgow bases, and three new routes from Belfast City Airport. The airline also announced that it will reopen 5 routes to Grenoble and Salzburg for this year’s ski season.
Announcing the new routes today, Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Peter Sherrard said:
“Today’s new routes include the first Ryanair flights between the UK and the Canary Islands and see the arrival of Europe’s lowest fares at George Best Belfast City airport, the 136th airport in the Ryanair network. From December, we will also re-open 5 ski routes from East Midlands, Liverpool and Glasgow to Grenoble and Salzburg in response to last year’s huge passenger demand for low fares to the slopes.
“Ryanair’s expansion across Europe is good news for consumers who will benefit from more of Europe’s guaranteed lowest fares and best punctuality. To celebrate these new routes, Ryanair has launched 5 million seats for just £/€10 including taxes and charges, and we advise all passengers to log onto www.ryanair.com immediately, as these low fares will be snapped up in record time”.
