The next set of Ryanair Summer services commenced today from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) with the airline’s inaugural flight to the Greek Island of Kos setting off from the airport early this morning. Flights to Rhodes start tomorrow and their flights to Lodz in Poland resume again at the weekend.

This is the first time that Ryanair have operated flights to Greece from Liverpool and since going on sale just over two months ago, the airline have seen record levels of sales for their Kos flight, for what looks likely to be one of their most popular services of the Summer.

Both Greek destinations are part of the Dodecanese group of islands located in the Aegean Sea. Kos was reportedly visited by Hercules in Roman mythology whilst Rhodes – the largest in this group of islands and historically, is famous worldwide for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Today both are popular summer holiday destinations.

Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Peel Airports commented, "The recent warm weather here in the UK has started to get everybody in the mood for some summer sunshine, but as always here in the UK, it was short lived and the rain returned as usual.

Thankfully with Ryanair’s summer season now underway, the region’s holidaymakers have even more great opportunities to get away to more reliable hot weather. There are few better places for this than the island of Kos, with the convenience of flying from your local airport and at some of the lowest fares around".

Ryanair’s Maria Macken added, "Ryanair is delighted to launch its Greek routes from Liverpool, which will operate twice weekly to Kos (Wednesdays and Sundays) and Rhodes (Thursdays and Mondays) making both destinations ideal for a weekend in the sun or a longer getaway. Bookings on the new Greek routes are going through the roof and with fares starting from as little as £39.99 one way inclusive of taxes for travel in May and June, we urge all passengers to log onto www.ryanair.com today to avoid disappointment."
