Ryanair has announced its 2016 summer schedule from Liverpool, where it has had a base for ten years and from which it has carried over 24 million passengers since its first flight took off in 1988.
The carrier’s Liverpool summer 2016 schedule consists of 29 routes, which Ryanair estimates will deliver 1.8m passengers per year and support 1,350 on-site jobs at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA).
Notable highlights include the increased frequency of Dublin flights, which will take place four times daily,as well as a twice weekly service between Liverpool and Reus.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely stated, “Our customers can look forward to further improvements in the coming months, including our personalised website, with exciting new digital features such as ‘hold the fare’ and real customer destination reviews, under our ‘Always Getting Better’ programme, as we continue to offer so much more than just lowest fares.
“It only seems like yesterday that Ryanair made Liverpool one of their major UK bases and over the past 10 years they have given passengers from across the region the opportunity to fly to a fantastic range of destinations and at some of the lowest fares, all with the added convenience and hassle free benefits of flying from Liverpool,” remarked Robin Tudor, head of PR at LJLA. “Ryanair’s continued commitment to Liverpool will mean another busy summer here next year and we look forward to working with Ryanair over the next 10 years.”
