Low cost airline Ryanair is launching its third new destination out of Liverpool in recent months this summer offering flights to one of Europe’s most beautiful coastal cities. Tony McDonough reports
Ryanair is to offer flights from Liverpool to the Croatian resort of Zadar starting this summer – provided COVID restrictions are lifted.
International travel out of the UK is still not permitted for most people until at least May 17. The Government’s road map out of COVID lockdown says people may be able to fly from that date as long as data on cases and vaccinations stays on track.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) has continued to work closely with its airline partners to plan ahead and offer the region’s passengers a list of summer destinations to choose from, once international travel opens up again.
This latest commitment to Liverpool is Ryanair’s third new route to be announced from the airport over the past six months with new flights to Kosice and Kaunas previously unveiled.
Zadar, located on the stunning Adriatic coastline, is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Croatia. It is steeped in history and over the centuries has been part of the Roman Empire and also ruled, at various points, by Hungary and Austria. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia.
Ryanair has launched a seat sale with fares available from just £19.99 for travel until the end of October 2021, which must be booked by midnight Thursday, 1st April on the Ryanair.com website.
Ryanair’s commercial director, Jason Mc Guinness, added, “We are pleased to announce a new Liverpool to Zadar route, commencing in July 2021 and flying twice-weekly as part of our UK summer 2021 schedule.
“Mindful that COVID restrictions change regularly, customers can now book flights for a well-deserved break knowing that if they need to postpone or change their travel dates, they can do so up to two times with a zero change fee until the end of October 2021.”
Paul Winfield, LJLA’s director of aviation development, added: “It’s great to see Ryanair’s commitment to Liverpool, the city region and beyond continue with the return of their flights to Zadar, their third new route to be announced from Liverpool in recent months.”
