Ryanair Toulon service opens up greater access to the South of France


Ryanair today commenced services from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) to the Mediterranean coastal town of Toulon in the South of France.


Flights from JLA now depart on Fridays and Mondays early in the morning, giving the region’s passengers plenty of time to sample the delights of Toulon which is famous for its wine making, fishing and celebrated daily Provencal market.


This is the first time flights have operated to Toulon from Liverpool which is a new gateway to the Provence and Cote D’Azur regions of southern France.


It is just 45 minutes from Marseille and just over an hour from the glitz and glamour of St Tropez on the Cote d’Azur and is likely to prove popular for holidaymakers looking for convenient flights to the South of France.


Later this month Ryanair will also be commencing flights to Greece for the first time from Liverpool, operating to the Greek islands of Kos and Rhodes as part of this year’s Summer Sun destinations from JLA. Ryanair will be adding more capacity on their Summer Sun destinations this year as demand for traditional short haul sunshine destinations to the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands has increased.


Speaking today in Toulon, Ryanair’s Maria Macken commented, "Ryanair is delighted to celebrate this new twice weekly Liverpool service to/from Toulon which is famous for its magnificent beaches, cultural heritage and architecture."


On behalf of Peel Airports, also speaking from the celebrations in Toulon, Neil Pakey added, "The link to Toulon-Hyères opens up direct flights to the St.Tropez and Provence region of France which should prove immensely popular this summer. With Ryanair’s Friday and Monday flights it seems ideal for short breaks and vacations alike."


To celebrate today’s inaugural flight, Ryanair announced that from midnight (24:00hrs) tonight (1st Apr) it will release 500,000 £7 seats for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in May & June.  These “all in” low fares will be available on over 1,000 of Ryanair’s European routes but must be booked on before midnight (24:00hrs) Monday (4th Apr).
