Tue, 22 Jul, 2008

Budget airline Ryanair is to launch a new service from Leeds-Bradford Airport to Alicante from October 28th.

The airline will fly from the airport to the Costa Blanca city three times every week.

This is in addition to a four-times-a-week service to Girona Airport in Barcelona, starting on October 1st.

Ryanair spokesperson Bridget Dowling said: "Both routes provide exceptional low fares and will deliver record savings for Leeds passengers."

She went on to say that Ryanair's new routes to Barcelona and Alicante will bring a "significant increase" in European visitors and jobs to West Yorkshire.

As part of the launch, passengers will be able fly from £30, including taxes.

Ryanair currently operates three flights a day to Dublin from Leeds-Bradford Monday to Friday and one on Saturdays.

Bridgepoint Capital, the new owners of Leeds-Bradford Airport, recently announced that it intends to increase long-stay car parking spaces from 2,500 to 3,000, reports the Wharfdale Observer.
