Ryanair announces new backpacking routes

Those planning to take a backpacking trip over the coming months may be interested to learn that Ryanair is set to launch four new routes to and from Bordeaux next month.

From December 17th, travelers will be able to book tickets from the French city to Bologna, Brussels (Charleroi), Edinburgh and Porto.

Ryanair spokesman Ken O'Toole said the airline expects around 200,000 people to travel on the new services over the coming year.

"To celebrate these new routes and Bordeaux Airport, Ryanair is releasing 1 million €15 (£13) fares which are now available for travel across Europe in November and December," he added.

Ryanair announced today that its profits have risen by 80 per cent over the last year, with its fares dropping by around 17 per cent during the same period.

The average cost of a ticket with the airline now comes in at €39.
