Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (2 June) welcomed its 260 millionth passenger on its flights to/from the UK.
It presented Louise Ansell and daughters Annabel (8) and Sophia (7) from South Petherton, Somerset, with a free holiday to Lanzarote including flights and four nights’ B&B at the four-star Hotel Paradise Island, part of the Lopez Hotel chain.
The family were on this morning’s Ryanair flight to Bergerac and are frequent Ryanair fliers when travelling to France from Bristol.
Ryanair also launched its Bristol winter 2011 schedule which will offer seventeen routes, including a new Katowice route and great winter sun destinations such as Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife.
Since Ryanair’s first UK flight departed from London Gatwick to Dublin in July 1985, Ryanair has opened 10 UK bases and offers flights on over 370 routes from 17 UK airports. In 2011 Ryanair will carry over 28m passengers to/from the UK, supporting and sustaining 28,000 UK jobs.
Ryanair celebrated its 260 millionth passenger and the launch of its winter 2011 schedule by releasing 1 million £12 seats for travel across its European network in July which are available for booking on www.ryanair.com until midnight on Monday (6 June).
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“In just 25 years Ryanair has carried 260m passengers to and from the UK, with passengers saving over £45bn by choosing Ryanair’s low fares over BA’s high fares. Ryanair will carry over 28 million passengers through 17 UK airports this year, sustaining 28,000 jobs and underlining Ryanair’s commitment and importance to the UK.
“To celebrate our 260 millionth passenger to/from the UK and the launch of our winter 2011 schedule, Ryanair is releasing 1m £12 seats which are now available for travel across Europe in July. Since seats at this crazy low price will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on www.ryanair.com .”
