To Bordeaux with Ryanair
From Cologne/Bonn to the vineyards: starting spring 2019, the Irish carrier Ryanair will be flying to Bordeaux in the southwest of France three times a week. Beginning in April, the airline will include the route in its flight schedule - the Boeing 737 will take off every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
"Bordeaux has long been on our list of French cities that we would like to add to our timetable. We are very pleased that Ryanair will be introducing this service. This will enable our passengers to travel easily to their holiday destination in southern France next year. I visited Bordeaux in August last year and was very impressed with the banks of the Garonne and the old town nearby," says Johan Vanneste, CEO of Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH.
Not only is Bordeaux the centre of one of the world's most famous wine-growing regions, but its impressive old town has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2007. Thanks to its more than 370 listed buildings, the city is also referred to as the "Paris of the South". But the new Ryanair connection is not only attractive for city visitors. The long sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast are only 45 kilometres away. A visit to the nearby "Dune du Pilat", the largest shifting sand dune in Europe, is spectacular. Once you've climbed the 500-metre-wide and 100-metre-high dune, you'll be rewarded with an endless view of the Atlantic.
Tickets to Bordeaux are available on the airline's website (www.ryanair.com) from as little as 24.99 Euros per flight. Flight time is 1 hour and 45 minutes.
