Ryanair have given Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) an early Christmas present today by announcing a further commitment to their Liverpool operations with news that they are to add a new route to the Mediterranean island of Malta for Summer 2013.
Flights will commence on 31st March 2013 at the beginning of the airline’s Summer season, operating three times weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Seats on Ryanair’s new route from Liverpool to Malta will start from £37 and are on sale now at www.ryanair.com
Passengers in the North West now have even more choice with 40 destinations on sale from Liverpool with Ryanair.
Today’s news follows the ultra-low cost airline’s announcement in the Autumn that they would be committing to more flights to their Liverpool network, adding services to Zadar (Croatia) and Lublin (Poland) for next Summer and increasing frequencies on a number of popular existing services.
Malta is a popular holiday destination with sunny weather, attractive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history and a route that the Airport expects will be popular with passengers across the region.
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Peel Airports added, "It’s great to see flights to Malta available once again from Liverpool. It’s an island with tremendous history and culture and Ryanair’s latest addition to their services from here will give the region’s passengers more destinations to choose from at LJLA with some great low fares to this Mediterranean destination."
