Ryanair carries its 100 millionth passenger to/from Italy


Ryanair welcomed its 100 millionth passenger on its flights to/from Italy as it presented Sr Nubia Pena Lozano, who was checking in on Ryanair’s Rome-Madrid flight this morning, with a cheque for €10,000 (1million cent) at Rome Ciampino, when Ryanair also announced a new route from Rome Ciampino to Rhodes from December 2010.


Since its first Italian flight departed London-Stansted to Venice Treviso in May 1998 Ryanair has opened 10 Italian bases and now offers flights on over 330 routes from 23 Italian airports.  In 2010 Ryanair will carry over 22 million passengers to/from Italy, supporting and sustaining 22,000 Italian jobs.


Ryanair’s growth in Italy continues in 2010 with 116 new routes to/from Italy (12 from Rome Ciampino Airport) which will deliver even more competition, choice and Europe’s lowest airfares to Italian consumers/visitors.  Ryanair celebrates its 100 millionth passenger and its new Rome Ciampino – Rhodes route by releasing 1million €5 seats for travel across its European network in October which are available for booking on until midnight Thursday 16th Sept.


Speaking in Rome, Michael O’Leary said:

“In just 12 years Ryanair has carried 100m passengers to and from Italy, with passengers saving over €10bn by choosing Ryanair’s low fares over Alitalia’s high fares.  Ryanair will carry over 22 million passengers through 23 Italian airports this year, sustaining 22,000 jobs and underlining Ryanair’s commitment and importance to Italy. To celebrate our 100 millionth passenger to/from Italy and the launch of our first Greek route from Rome to Rhodes, Ryanair is releasing 1million €5 seats which are now available for travel across Europe in October.  Since seats at this crazy low price will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on .”
