RYAINAIR has announced two new regular flight destinations from Bournemouth Airport, running twice a week to France and Croatia. 

The budget airline will start flights to Bergerac in France from this weekend, on Saturday (June 4). 

Bergerac is a quintessential medieval French town on the banks of the Dordogne and is also a gateway to south west France.  

Later this month, on June 18, Ryanair will start a new service to Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, at the resort of Zadar. 

Rough Guides describes Zadar as “one of the coolest places on the Adriatic”, renowned for its Roman and Venetian ruins, uncrowded beaches and proximity to Croatia’s national parks.

Steve Gill, managing director of Bournemouth Airport, said: “Our summer season is well and truly underway and it’s great to see Ryanair bringing even more choice to holidaymakers from their local airport.  

“We’ve got 33 destinations on offer this year to 16 countries and the travel industry really is starting to bounce back to meet strong demand for overseas travel.” 

Ryanair’s routes from Bournemouth include: Spain (Alicante, Girona, Gran Canaria, Malaga, Murcia, Palma de Mallorca and Tenerife), Ireland (Dublin), Hungary (Budapest), Poland (Krakow and Wroclaw), Portugal (Faro and Lisbon), Croatia (Zadar) and France (Bergerac).
