Ryanair Go Brum Brum - Cheap Cheap!

Ryanair have announced that they will fly 20 routes from my local airport in Birmingham from April 2008.

They will start by using two Boeing 737-800’s to fly to five destinations in Italy and France, three in Poland, two in Spain, and one each in Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Slovakia.

They then plan to introduce a further eight Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Chief executive Michael O'Leary said: "The people of Birmingham have been woefully underserved and overcharged by British Airways and Flybe's high fares for years.

"Ryanair's new base will smash this high fare stranglehold by delivering savings of £130m next year for Birmingham's passengers.

"This route count will more than double as a result of Ryanair's $700m investment in Birmingham, bringing with it a significant increase in European visitors and jobs for the West Midlands”.

Good news for Midlander's looking to make a saving on European trips.
