Ryanair is to launch two new routes from Cork, opening the option of visiting two Irish cities in one trip.
The carrier will launch flights from Cork to London Gatwick and Dublin on November 24.
The possible routings from the UK include Gatwick-Cork-Dublin-Gatwick, Stansted-Cork-Dublin-Stansted, or Liverpool-Cork-Dublin-Liverpool, as Ryanair already offers flights from Cork to Stansted and Liverpool. Customers could also vary their departure and arrival UK airport, for example, leaving from Gatwick and returning to Liverpool.
All this comes at no extra cost according to Ryanair spokesman, Peter Sherrard, who told Businesstraveller.com: “Our flights are booked on a one-way basis so there’s no extra charge unlike other airlines, where you’d pay a business class fare just because the booking was one-way.”
One drawback is that the multi-trip routing cannot be booked in one transaction online, as each leg has to be bought separately, so it’s wise to check the price on all legs before starting to make your booking.
Some of the routes are part of Ryanair’s four million seat sale, which lasts until October 6, so fares on Cork-Dublin are from five cents (E18 including tax) and on Cork-Gatwick are from one cent (E10 including tax).
