Ryanair announces first UK route to Greece

31st January 2011 Print

Ryanair has announced a new route from London Stansted to Thessaloniki – the airline’s first UK route to Greece.
The new service will operate three times a week and commence on 13 April with fares from £37.99 one way inclusive of taxes.
To celebrate, Ryanair released 500,000 £7 seats for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in February. These “all in” low fares will be available on over 500 of Ryanair’s European routes but must be booked on before midnight on Monday (31 January).
Ryanair’s £7 Seat Sale includes all taxes and charges so passengers who choose to avoid discretionary fees by paying for Ryanair’s cheapest flights with MasterCard Prepaid, travel with carry on luggage only and forego priority boarding can book, check-in online and fly for this advertised £7 fare on these seat sale flights.
Ryanair’s Laura McCormack said:
“Ryanair is delighted to announce a new service from London Stansted to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city, and it’s our first route to Greece from the UK. It goes on sale tomorrow and will operate three times a week from 13 April 2011.
“Thessaloniki is a fantastic destination offering stunning architecture, a Unesco World Heritage Site with numerous museums, festivals and events taking place all year round.
“Only Ryanair sells Europe’s lowest fares with a no fuel surcharge guarantee. In addition to our lowest fares we also deliver Europe’s No1 on-time performance across over 1,200 routes.  This weekend passengers can book our £7 seats for travel on over 500 European routes in February. These seats can only be booked until midnight on Monday (31 January) and are sure to be snapped up fast, so we urge passengers to book them on before they sell out.”
