The new routes will go to Liverpool, England, four times a week and to Trapani, Sicily, twice a week. The carrier will also have two new daily summer service to Milan and Rome. Flights can now be booked for up to October 2017. The carrier also announced that 100,000 seats would be available at a discount.
Liverpool is famous as the birthplace of the Beatles, and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004. Trapani is a fishing and resort village with ferry access to islands in the Mediterranean.
Ryanair will be opening its Prague base Oct. 30 with two aircraft. In total, there will be seven routes from Prague's Václav Havel Airport. Ryanair currently flies from Prague to Brussels, London (Stansted) and Dublin.
“We are pleased to launch our Prague summer 2017 schedule, which includes two new routes to Liverpool and Trapani and the continuation of our winter services to Milan Bergamo and Rome Ciampino to summer, and will deliver 760,000 customers per year and support 570 jobs at Prague Airport, as we continue to grow our Prague operation,” said David O’Brien, Ryanair’s chief commercial officer.
“We are also looking forward the opening of our Prague base at the end of October, with two based aircraft marking an investment of $200 million, and look forward to growing routes, traffic and tourism in the Czech Republic in the coming years,” he added
“To celebrate the launch of our Prague summer 2017 schedule, we are releasing 100,000 seats for sale across our European network from just 459 CZK, which are available for booking until Monday (Sept. 5). Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
Václav Řehoř, chairman of the Board of Directors of Czech Aeroholding, said he was delighted that Ryanair is expanding in Prague. “It confirms the overall growth of interest in Prague as a travel destination. Václav Havel Airport Prague gives opportunities for further expansion, actively motivates carriers to launch new routes and to increase the flight frequencies, and it is clear that the cooperation is working well. Four new destinations of the airline correspond with the fact that Great Britain is in first place and Italy is in third place of ranking of the most popular destinations based on the number of transported passengers, and interest in these countries continues to grow,” Řehoř said.
Last year, 12,030,000 passengers passed through Václav Havel Airport, which is 7.9 percent more than in 2014. The airport has 60 airlines connecting Prague directly with more than 130 cities.
Ryanair was established in Ireland in 1984 as a no-frills, low-cost carrier with flights between Ireland and the Britain, later adding other routes. It currently serves 192 destinations and has a fleet of more than 350 aircraft.
