Ryanair, an Ireland-based low cost airline, is offering a daily return flight to Brussels Charleroi airport in Belgium, from Dublin, Ireland.
The new route between Brussels and Dublin is priced at €19 one way, with a morning and evening flight leaving daily, compared to a single daily flight that left previously. The extended route will be effective from November 7, 2012.
The airline head of communications, Stephen McNamara, said, ‘Ryanair is delighted to announce an additional daily return flight (from November 7, 2012) between Brussels and Dublin to mark Ireland’s upcoming Presidency of the EU. European and Irish politicians can save Europe’s taxpayers thousands of euros by switching to Ryanair’s low cost flights without having to fork out on hotels or other expenses, thanks to our double daily flights.
Ryanair’s low fares will be enjoyed by over 79 million ordinary consumers this year and only Ryanair can deliver the lowest fares coupled with industry leading customer service. With austerity and budget tightening now the focus of every EU state, it is time that more governments stopped wasting money flying with high-cost, frequently delayed, airlines.
With Ryanair fares starting from just €19, civil servants can slash the amount of taxpayer money they waste and spend that money instead on much needed hospitals and schools. With a commitment from governments to fly Ryanair, Ireland can deliver the first low cost EU presidency.’
The new additional service marks Ireland’s return for a six-month presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU), commencing on January 1, 2013. Cyprus is currently the president of the EU council.
The airline is also offering a seat sale of airfares from £12 for around 1,000 routes in November this year, for passengers willing to travel with carry-on luggage only, and not opting for the airline’s priority boarding service. The seat sale runs until the end of today.
