Ryanair announce two new routes to Pisa & Barcelona (Girona) with low fares starting at £3.99 one way excluding taxes.
28 March 2006
Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline, has announced it will be expanding its operations from Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield with the addition of two new routes to Pisa & Barcelona (Girona).
Following the huge success of the existing daily Dublin service, and as a direct reaction to consumer demand, Ryanair will start flying the additional routes towards the end of the Summer.
Pisa will operate four times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays. Flights to Pisa start 14 September 2006.
Barcelona (Girona) will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Flights to Barcelona (Girona) start on 31 October 2006.
The new services combined bring an addition seven flights per week, taking Ryanair’s total weekly operation to fourteen weekly flights to Ireland, Italy & Spain.
The new routes will carry an addition 100,000 Ryanair passengers, bringing the total Ryanair passengers through the UK’s newest Airport to 200,000 annually.
Speaking at the press conference today, David Ryall, Managing Director at Robin Hood Airport said:
“We are delighted that Ryanair is expanding its services from Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield. These new routes offer more choice to passengers and are further evidence of Ryanair’s commitment to work with the Peel Airports Group to develop air services at our Airports; Liverpool John Lennon, Durham Tees Valley & Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield”
Announcing the new routes at Robin Hood Airport today, Ryanair’s Deputy Head of Sales & Marketing Europe, Caroline Baldwin said:
"With the two new routes Ryanair will serve three destinations from Doncaster Sheffield and deliver 200,000 passengers a year sustaining 200 jobs in the local economy.
"The new Pisa service will provide a fabulous opportunity for passengers to explore Tuscany, one of Italy's most beautiful regions, and take city breaks to both Pisa and Florence at the lowest fares in Europe.
"Barcelona (Girona) offers the perfect excuse for a few days off and here you can mix shopping and party life with chilling out on the beach. In the region you will also find the Cava district, the home of the Spanish "champagne".
"The new routes are on sale starting today at fares from just £3.99* at www.ryanair.com"

Quoting Cosmic (Reply 5): Can someone explain to me though, why, considering Doncaster not being that busy, why other more suitable times have not been selected?
To fit in with Ryanair's schedule? They might as well fly at this time rather than start their day's ops at 10-12. There are 30+ flights from Stansted before 8:30 which people may find inconvenient, but what's the point of keeping aircraft on the ground until a convenient time?
