Bristol: Ryanair’s Newest Base

Bristol, looking spooky

Ryanair announced yesterday that Bristol is set to become its 20th base airport. Currently, Ryanair flies between Bristol and just three destinations: Barcelona Girona, Dublin, and Shannon.

With Bristol’s upgrade to base airport status, 13 destinations have been added to the roster. In November, Ryanair will begin flying between Bristol and Bratislava, Bristol, Derry, Dinard, Katowice, Knock, Milan Bergamo, Porto, Poznan, Riga, Rzeszow, and Wroclaw; from December, a Bristol-Salzburg route will commence.

To promote its new base, Ryanair is hawking 100,000 one-way fares from Bristol for £10—and that tenner includes taxes and charges. Go to it, Cheapos.
