Ryanair announces new route from Kaunas to Knock in the West of Ireland

Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC), today (31st October) announces a new route from Kaunas to Knock in Western Ireland. The route will commence on the 3rd of April 2014 and will operate once a week on Thursdays. The new route is part of a larger growth announcement for Knock airport as Ryanair’s direct response to the Irish government’s decision to cut the travel tax in Ireland from April 2014 onwards.
Knock is located in the West of Ireland, roughly 200 kilometres west of Ireland’s capital Dublin, and not far from cities such as Galway, Sligo and Westport. It serves as ideal departure point for excursions into the West of the Emerald Isle, offering great drives along the costal line and providing some of the best views of the famous countryside Ireland has to offer.

Ryanair’s Sales & Marketing Manager Elina Hakkarainen said:
“The West coast is one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland and always worth a visit and I am delighted to announce this new route from Kaunas to Knock. The route will commence on 3rd of April 2014 with a once a week service. The tickets for this new route will go on sale on tomorrow 1st of November. Flights to our second Irish destination from Kaunas are sure to be very popular so we urge everyone to visit for the lowest fares and great introduction offers.”

To celebrate this new route announcement, Ryanair has released 100,000 seats at prices starting from just 52LTL for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in December and January. These “all in” low fares will be available on over 1000 of Ryanair’s routes, including e.g. Kaunas to Oslo Rygge and must be booked on before midnight (24:00hrs) Monday 4th November. At these mad prices the tickets are sure to be snapped up fast, so we urge passengers to book them on before they sell out.”
