By way of celebrating this route extension, Ryanair will be releasing 20,000 fare-free seats (excluding taxes and charges of course) for there-and-back-again travel to the Islands between October 26th and December 19th. The tickets are available for booking on the Ryanair website until midnight on August 5th so what are you waiting for? Cheap travel never came so easily.
Snaffle up that there ticket and head to any one of these 16 airports to hop aboard and begin your Canary Island adventure Barcelona, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Brussels (Charleroi), Dublin, Dusseldorf (Weeze), East Midlands, Frankfurt (Hahn), Glasgow, Liverpool, London (Luton and Stansted), Madrid, Oporto and Shannon.
Ryanair's Michael Cawley, officially titled as deputy chief executive and chief operating officer, had this to say: "These 39 new routes are the result of the 100 per cent discount offered by AENA (Spanish Airports and Air Navigation) on its airport charges. The continuation of these routes past March 31st 2010 will be dependent on the extension of these vital discounts."
And the best bit? Seeing as you've saved pennies on getting to your destination, you can afford to splash out on a bit of luxury in your choice of backpacker hostels for a change, like the Rural Las Calas hotel, a 17th century manor house on Gran Canaria, or Tenerife's La Vista Pension. How's that for a slice of fried gold?
