Ryanair has announced its first routes from Chania (second largest city on the Greek island of Crete) to Frankfurt Hahn and Milan Bergamo from May 2011 which will deliver 60,000 passengers p.a. and create up to 60 local jobs in Crete.
Ryanair celebrated its first Crete route by launching a 1 million €7 seat sale for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in late April and early May which are available for booking until midnight Monday (28th Mar). Ryanair’s Chania routes go on sale on www.ryanair.com tomorrow.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“Ryanair is delighted to boost Greek tourism with the introduction of our first routes from the Greek island of Crete to Frankfurt Hahn and Milan Bergamo which will provide Italian , German and Greek consumers/visitors with even more low fares on this exciting route this summer, which will deliver 60,000 passengers p.a. and create up to 60 local jobs.
“To celebrate this new route Ryanair is launching 1million €7 seats, for travel across Europe late April and early May, which are available for booking until midnight Monday. Since seats at these crazy low prices will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on www.ryanair.com.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
