Ryanair late deals and more flights information

The initial demand was for information in connection with Bournemouth hotels and Dublin hotels, car hire and Ryanair low fares tickets. The route has been a tremendous success resulting in an expansion by Latebreaks to include partner hotels in most of the counties of Ireland, see www.hotelireland.com

At that time, Bournemouth airport (Hurn airport) or Ryanair had no Internet presence so the Latebreaks website (previously www.ryanair.net) was a valuable source of information and advertising for Bournemouth airport and Ryanair tourists and travelers, it was also a very useful promotional tool for Bournemouth Airport, Ryanair and Latebreaks for promoting the Dublin to Bournemouth ryanair route, the Latebreaks website was used in connection with joint advertising partnerships, competitions and exhibitions. Latebreaks also added information to support the other airline routes to and from Jersey, Spain, Malta, and Faro airport in the Algarve region of Portugal by Palmair, Islanders, Jetsun, Airtours etc etc, with a selection of website portals such as www.algarvedirect.com, for algarve villa rentals www.palmair.co.uk for flight and Jersey hotels information in connection with the Channel Islands, for Gerona in Spain see home page.

Ryanair, Europe's No.1 low fares airline announced FOUR new scheduled flights FROM DUBLIN - TO BARCELONA, BLACKPOOL, FARO, AND MALAGA, and INCREASED services to Newcastle in Britain.

New route for Ryanair from Dublin to Faro airport in the Algarve region of Portugal Ryanair offers one million "free" seats
Business & Finance

Ryanair is offering one million "free" seats across its network over the next three months to promote the launch of its customer service and low fares charter.

One quarter of the seats, on which passengers will only pay taxes, will be available on routes from Dublin. Michael Cawley, Ryanair's commercial director, said the free flights amounted to one third of the carrier's capacity over the promotion period.

"There are no restrictions. And the free flights cover the mid-term break for schools and the October bank holiday, a busy time for airlines,"

Cawley said the charter would let the media and passengers "judge" the airline, adding that it was Ryanair's response to the "smoke and mirrors policy of the high fares airlines".

He also said there was a lot of misinformation about Ryanair's standards and accused the Advertising Standards Authority of being "more vigorous in its scrutiny of the low fares carriers than the high fares airlines".

The airline also reiterated its commitment to safety and claimed that its order for 100 new Boeing aircraft would mean that by 2006, no Ryanair aircraft would be more than six years old.
