The number of Ryanair passengers flying out of Manchester Airport has increased by 200,000 to reach more than 2.3 million customers per year.
Ryanair’s Maria Macken said: “Ryanair is pleased to launch our Manchester 2014 winter schedule, with 23 routes, including 4 new routes to Barcelona, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lisbon, as well as increased frequencies on 3 other routes.” She went on to outline some of the benefits of travelling with the airline:
“Consumers and visitors already choose Ryanair for the lowest fares, great route choice and our industry leading customer service. Now they can also book their flights on our much improved website and enjoy a free small second carry-on bag, “quiet flights”, allocated seats and use their personal electronic devices at all stages of their flight, making Ryanair the ideal choice for families and friends, with a new smartphone app, and family and business products coming soon, as Ryanair continues to deliver so much more than just the lowest fares.”
Flights on the new routes are already available for sale. The airline has also recently announced that it will be launching 2 new Polish bases - Warsaw Modlin & Gdansk – in winter 2014 as well as 4 new winter routes from Warsaw to Gdansk, Madrid, Shannon and Wroclaw. In Warsaw, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:
“Ryanair is delighted to announce that we will be opening a new base at Warsaw Modlin this winter, offering 20 exciting routes, including 4 new winter routes to Gdansk, Madrid, Shannon and Wroclaw, which will deliver some 1.9m passengers annually and sustain over 1,900* “on-site” jobs at Warsaw Modlin Airport, as Ryanair invests over $90m at Warsaw Modlin.” If you are planning a holiday on the continent this year, it is important to organise European travel insurance.
