Ryanair has announced that it will soon launch a new service to Thessaloniki airport from Stansted Airport, the airline’s first British route to Greece.
Passengers will be able to choose from flights that leave three times per week beginning on April 13th.
“Thessaloniki is a fantastic destination offering stunning architecture, a Unesco World Heritage Site with numerous museums, festivals and events taking place all year round,” Ryanair’s Laura McCormack said.
Fares for the new service will start from £37.99 one way, including taxes.
In celebration of the route, the low-cost airline is offering 500,000 seats that cost £7 for flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during February, which can be booked prior to midnight tonight (January 31st).
Furthermore, Ryanair recently celebrated its 20 millionth passenger when it flew Patricia McPhillimy from Dublin to Prestwick Airport, the Press Association reported. Ms McPhillimy was met at the Scottish travel hub by transport minister Keith Brown who presented her with flowers, a free return flight and a bottle of champagne.
