Ryanair adds to Athens and Shannon

Ryanair Lappeenranta

Ryanair returned to Lappeenranta earlier this year with flights from Milan Bergamo, with the Finnish airport greeting the carrier’s second route this week – Athens. Pictured at the inaugural flight from the Greek capital are: Eija Joro, President, Lappeenranta Airport; Chris Lundshøj, Sales and Marketing Executive for Nordics and Baltics, Ryanair; and Mirka Rahman, Marketing and Tourism Manager, Lappeenranta City. The route from Athens will operate weekly.

Ryanair Shannon Liverpool

Along with its expansion from Athens, Ryanair also introduced two routes to Shannon this week, with one being Bristol and the other Liverpool. Seen pictured with the crew at the latter UK airport’s route launch to the Irish airport are Robin Kiely, Head of Communications, Ryanair and Robin Tudor, Head of PR, Liverpool Airport.

  • Ryanair, which last week added services from Athens (ATH) to six new destinations, has introduced a further three from the Greek capital this week, namely Billund (BLL), Lappeenranta (LPP) and Rzeszow (RZE). All three will be flown by the Irish carrier weekly on its 737-800s, with only Billund services facing direct competition, a result of Primera Air offering a weekly seasonal service between the Danish and Greek cities. Along with the new routes from Athens, Ryanair has also introduced two new routes to Shannon (SNN) this week, namely Bristol (BRS) and Liverpool (LPL). Neither UK service faces direct competition.
