Ryanair launches new route from Liverpool to Corfu

Dublin-based budget airline Ryanair today announced a new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to the Greek island of Corfu.

The twice weekly service will start from next June, as part of Ryanair’s Summer 2019 schedule, which will be launched shortly.

Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely said: “Ryanair is pleased to announce a new Liverpool route to Corfu commencing in June, which will operate twice weekly as part of our Summer 2019 schedule.

“Customers in the North West region can now book flights to the Greek sunshine as far out as October 2019, with our full schedule launching soon.”

Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s director of aviation development, Paul Winfield, said: “Liverpool Airport is delighted to welcome this latest new route with Ryanair.

“This new route will allow passengers from across the North West to travel to Corfu from Liverpool, the faster, easier, friendlier airport in the North West.”

Corfu is an island off Greece’s north west coast in the Ionian Sea, defined by rugged mountains and a resort-studded shoreline.

Its cultural heritage reflects years spent under Venetian, French and British rule before it was united with Greece in 1864.

It is a popular tourist attraction and Corfu Town, flanked by two imposing Venetian fortresses, features winding medieval lanes, a French-style arcade and the grand Palace of St Michael and St George.

Ryanair flies around 35 routes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
