Ryanair today announced it would open a new route between London Stansted and Lublin – its 11th Polish airport – from 17th Dec, bringing its Stansted winter schedule to 95 routes, including new winter routes to Budapest and Warsaw (Modlin), as well as ski routes to Grenoble, Salzburg and Turin.
Ryanair’s new London-Lublin routes will ensure competition and substantially lower airfares than those offered by high fare Wizzair. Ryanair celebrated its new Lublin route by releasing launch fares from £16, which is less than Wizz’s lowest fares (£31.99) to/from Lublin (for travel Jan – Mar).
Ryanair’s new London-Lublin route goes on sale from just £16 one-way on www.ryanair.com tomorrow.
In Lublin, Ryanair’s Michael Cawley said:
“Ryanair is pleased to announce that our first route between London Stansted and Lublin Airport will open on 17th December next which will bring our winter schedule at Stansted Airport to 95 routes. Passengers can beat the recession and escape Wizzair’s high fares by switching to Ryanair’s lowest fares and our no fuel surcharge guarantee flights to/ from Lublin Airport.
“To celebrate this new London-Lublin route, Ryanair is releasing launch fares from £16 one-way, which is less than Wizz’s lowest fares. These are available for booking until midnight Monday (24 Sept). Since seats at these crazy low prices will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on www.ryanair.com.”
Grzegorz Muszynski, CEO of Lublin Airport said:
“This is a dream come true and we are delighted that Ryanair, Europe’s biggest low cost carrier, has started to operate at Lublin Airport. We believe this is an important step for further co-operation, which will benefit to our region and our citizens, who can now fly to London with Ryanair.”
