Ryanair announces 11 new flight routes from Liverpool

April 7, 2006

Low cost carrier Ryanair is spreading its wings, going by a slew of new routes it announced recently, the latest being eleven new routes from the John Lennon airport in Liverpool.

Ryanair said the new routes would become operational from autumn.

Ryanair’s plans include daily flights to Aberdeen and Inverness as well as four flights per week to Tampere, Finland.

The remaining eight services Ryanair plans will be thrice a week. All services are slated to start on October 3.

Ryanair’s remaining flight routes from Lennon airport are: Alghero and Ancona in Italy, Kaunas in Lithuania, Krakow, Poznan and Wroclaw in Poland as well as the Liverpool-Santander and Liverpool-Santiago flights.

The budget airline said the new services would up the number of its services from Liverpool to 32 from 21.

Ryanair also sees new routes bringing in 600 fresh jobs. The number of passengers will increase by 600,00 per annum, Ryanair said.

The airline has a load factor, or number of occupied seats during a flight, at 79% in March this year, which is just a shade below the 80% it recorded in the same period the previous year.

But at the same time the number of passengers it carried in March compared to the previous year was up at 3m million. Last year it carried 2.6 million passengers.

In the year ended March31, Ryanair flew 34.8 million passengers , which is just short of its targeted 35 million.

The airline sees it carrying 42 million passengers in the fiscal year 2006-2007.

Ryanair admitted that it had to trim some flights in January as aircraft maker Boeing had to delay the delivery.

Ryanair’s 6th and 7th Boeing 737-800 aircraft will be based in Liverpool. It also sees an investment of $240 million and an additional 600 jobs in connection with this.

Ryanair said flights starting as rates as low as £2.49 for a one-way trip are available on its website now. This is subject to conditions, the airline said.
