Irish low-fares airline, Ryanair, has launched inaugural flights from London Stansted to Bordeaux in France and Rabat in Morocco.
Ryanair will operate three weekly flights to Bordeaux on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with the intention of offering passengers in the East of England more choice for the coming year.
Ryanair’s Lisa Cashin said: ‘Ryanair is delighted to celebrate its inaugural flight from London Stansted to Bordeaux in a week that also saw the launch of a new route to Rabat in Morocco. Ryanair will operate three weekly flights to Bordeaux on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays offering passengers in the East of England area even more choice for 2014. With fares starting from £17.99 there’s no excuse not to sample all that is on offer in Bordeaux.
‘To celebrate, Ryanair is releasing 100,000 seats across its European network at prices starting from £17.99 for travel on Mon, Tue, Wed & Thur in March and April and these ‘all in’ cheap flights will be available on over 1,000 of Ryanair’s European routes, but must be booked on the Ryanair.com website before midnight (24:00hrs) Mon, 10 February.’
As part of its recent initiatives to improve customer service, Ryanair said last week that with immediate effect all of its customers can use their Personal Electronic Devices (including tablets, smartphones, e-readers and MP3 players) for the entire duration of their flight.
The airline has also introduced allocated seats for all customers from February 1, with three booking options available.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said, ‘We are listening to our customers and responding, so that they can continue to enjoy the lowest fares and most on-time flights, but can also benefit from our recent improvements to our industry leading customer service, including a second free small bag carry-on bag, easier website access, a ‘My Ryanair’ registration service, 24 hour grace periods, ‘quiet flights’ and reduced bag fees, with further improvements set to be rolled out over the coming weeks and months.’
