Ryanair launches new route from Bournemouth Airport to Crete

Bournemouth Echo: Paul Knight Paul Knight

A NEW route started from Bournemouth Airport to Chania in Crete this week.

Ryanair launched the route from Bournemouth on Tuesday, bringing the total number of destinations the airline fly to from Bournemouth to 16.

Bournemouth Airport’s managing director Paul Knight said: “It’s great news that Ryanair have officially launched their new route to Chania from Bournemouth Airport today, bringing the choice of Ryanair destinations from Bournemouth to 16 for summer.

“Ryanair passengers trav-elling through Bournemouth Airport can also take advantage of relaxed rules for airport shopping and can now take one shopping bag on board in addition to their hand luggage.”

Another inaccurate story! The way you report its like Bournemouth airport has gained another route when in fact this route has been added in place of the Wroclaw route which was axed! so in fact its not bringing any more additional flight destinations than Ryanair previously had!!

I think it's great news another holiday destination,as for the drop off charge I happily pay £5 to travel from Bournemouth any day of the week ,never ever been delayed less hustle and bustle than gatwick and the knowledge I will be home washing in machine drinking tea knowing if I had flown from gatwickI'd only just be through in the baggage hall with a further 2 and half hours to get home . So a fiver is a small price to pay

I never would book Ryan air by choice however as I refuse to pay the travel agents there extortionate prices I build my holiday on line dependent on the destinations available from Bournemouth ,I'm booked to go to Majorca at the end of May for ten nights all inclusive flights baggage and transfers for 590 when the travel agents wanted in excess of £1000 for same dates ,my flight happens to be Ryan air 115 for the flight taxes and baggage allowance ,I know full well I must check in on line and print my boarding pass, I know if I'm a kilo over they will charge me so I always check to make sure I have dotted the i,s and crossed the t,s before travelling with them ,sadly the people who moan about Ryan air are the ones who have failed to do this and are the ones you read about complaining about the additional fees incured

Minus 10 comments for being prepared to pay the drop off fee,get a life if you would rather pay the fuel costs to another airport and pay for parking for the duration of your holiday rather than pay five pounds get a life

If you don't want to pay the drop off charges, just get dropped off at the end of the road and walk in like many passengers do, although easier with only hand luggage.

Please explain how I have been ripped off by paying £50 return to Palma or £45 return to Malaga already this year from an airport 10 minutes from home.
Would you please post details of where I could get it cheaper and more convenient.
And I don't pay drop off pick up fee!

the only reason there is a drop off fee is the fact ryan air wont pay landing fees forcing everyone else to pay more that why there are less flights from Bournemouth these days

The drop off fee was introduced by MAG, nothing to do with Ryanair.
I believe they don't pay landing fees anywhere if they turn around within 25 minutes but they do fly thousands of people to airports around Europe and if those airports are managed properly they benefit from the increased trade.
You only have to look at the massive expansion of airports such as Faro, Girona, Malaga, Palma, Reus, etc based on the increased trade from low cost airlines, not just Ryanair.
Hurn's disadvantage compared to inland airports is that it only has a 180 degree, low population catchment area (and is mismanaged by Manchester Airports Group)!

Ignore sky driver. We've been down this discussion so many times and he never comes back with anything of any substance. Ryanair planes tend to be much newer than many of their so called non budget competitors. The past time I flew short haul within BA was like a throw back to the 80's.

Te drop off charge rant is old. Don't be so tight, if you can afford to go on holiday, then you can afford to pay your mate 5 pounds to be dropped off.
