New Ryanair routes to Bristol and Nantes from Shannon

Ryanair announces new routes to Bristol and Nantes, more flights to Frankfurt.



7 July, 2005: Ryanair, Europe’s No. 1 low fares airline, today  announced two new routes from its Shannon base to Bristol and Nantes. 

The new route from Shannon to Bristol will start daily on 30th October 2005. The new route to Nantes will operate 3 times a week from 1st November 2005.

The two new routes will bring the total number of destinations served by Ryanair at Shannon to 16. In addition, Ryanair announced a frequency increase from 1 to 4 flights per week on its Frankfurt route, starting 31st October 2005. This expansion will result in an additional 200,000 passengers per annum at Shannon.

Announcing the expansion at Shannon today, Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary, said: “The Shannon base has exceeded our expectations since its launch in May and has firmly established itself as one of the most important drivers of both tourism and the economy in the West of Ireland. Today’s new routes to Bristol and Nantes and the frequency increase to Frankfurt means that 1.5 M passengers at Shannon over the next year will benefit from Ryanair’s lowest fares and save over €150M compared to the high fare airlines.

“These new flights are available for booking today on www.ryanair.com from 99 cents* and passengers are advised to book their seats immediately as demand for these new destinations will be very strong.”

In welcoming the Ryanair announcement, Niall Gibbons, Director of Corporate Services in Tourism Ireland, said:

"Increasing air access into the island of Ireland is fundamental in our goal of increasing the number of overseas tourists. Global competition has never been stronger so we need to motivate consumers with compelling offers and reasons to visit, combined with a range of competitively-priced access options to a variety of locations on the island. Ryanair's decision to open new routes from France and England means that even more potential visitors now have low-cost access direct into Shannon. This builds on the already excellent direct access into the regions and will do much to spread the benefits of tourism into the Western seaboard".
