Low-cost airline Ryanair has launched three new routes between Bristol and France. Flights from the south-west airport to Bergerac (Dordogne), Beziers (Languedoc) and Pau (Atlantic Pyrenees) will all begin in May, and will all be three-times weekly connections.
In the coming year the airline aims to carry one million passengers from Bristol Airport.
Michael O'Leary, Ryanair's Chief Executive, said: "Our record advance bookings confirm that passengers in Bristol can't get enough of Ryanair's guaranteed lowest fares and in response, we are already adding three new routes to Bergerac, Beziers and Pau starting in May."
In order to mark the new routes, the airline is putting 50,000 seats from Bristol on sale from £5 (including taxes), for booking by midnight on Monday (October 15).At the same time, Ryanair's summer 2008 schedule has been launched and all seats will be covered by the carrier's lowest fare guarantee. A total of 40 million seats on 556 routes have gone on sale, with some of the lowest fares being cut by 50 per cent.
