Ryanair is to add to its routes out of Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) with a new route to Corfu starting next summer.
The Irish carrier, which operates more than 30 routes out of LJLA, says the twice-weekly service will take off in June 2019. It also announced a seat sale on all routes for travel in October, November, December and January with prices starting at £9.99.
Ryanair has been dogged by industrial disputes by both cabin crew and pilots this year forcing it to slash its profit forecasts for the year.
Earlier this week John Moore, head of industrial relations at the British Airline Pilots’ Association, Balpa, warned that relations between Ryanair and its pilots would not improve while chief executive Michael O’Leary remains in charge, accusing him of creating an “atmosphere of distrust”.
“If you asked one of our members, they would say that this does come from the top, that things will only improve if there is regime change,” Mr Moore said.
Speaking about the new route to Corfu, LJLA’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.”
