Ryanair hits six million mark at Bristol Airport
Tuesday, October 18, 2011
News has reached our Bristol Meet and Greet team this month that Ryanair has just carried its six millionth passenger from Bristol Airport.
According to our Meet and Greet car parking staff, the airline reached this landmark on Monday 14th March as thousands of passengers flew in to Bristol for the Cheltenham Festival.
The Cheltenham Festival is a four day racing event that attracts equine enthusiasts from around the globe - including a great number of jockeys, owners and spectators from Ireland. As a consequence, the Ryanair route from Dublin to Bristol was hugely popular on the days preceding the festival's start on Tuesday 15th March.
Ryanair's six millionth passenger was Keely Jarvis from Aberdare, South Wales who flew into Bristol on a flight from Dublin. To celebrate the landmark occasion, Keely was presented with a bottle of champagne and a pair of return flights from Bristol to Valencia, and was congratulated as she made her way out to the Bristol Airport car park.
Ryanair has been running flights from Bristol Airport since 1997, when they launched the first daily service to Dublin. Fourteen years on and the low budget airline serves 29 destinations across Europe and North Africa from the bustling regional airport. And with the introduction of a new service to Ibiza planned for this spring, things seem to be going from strength to strength for Ryanair at Bristol.
