New Portugal route for Manchester Airport

Fri, 29 May, 2009

Manchester Airport passengers will have a new option for a holiday to Portugal next year, it has been announced.

Budget carrier bmibaby has launched its new flight schedule for Easter 2010, which includes a route to the city of Faro.

Dates are available from between March 28th and April 18th and the trips will take place three-times per week – on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

The company has also released tickets for a number of its other destinations, including Alicante, Amsterdam, Palma, Prague, Toulouse and Lisbon.

People wanting to vacation closer to home may be interested in its services to Jersey and Newquay.

Announcing the move, managing director of the organisation Crawford Rix commented it allows customers to "plan ahead" to get the cheapest offers.

"We are also delighted to launch a new route from Manchester Airport to Faro. This is a very popular summer destination which we currently fly to from East Midlands, Birmingham and Cardiff Airport," he said.

Those who choose to begin their breaks in the comfort of their own vehicle are advised the Manchester hub can be found at Junction 5 of the M60.
