Ryanair launches Liverpool to Bari
LIVERPOOL Airport is getting ready to
play host to a new, twice weekly, schedule service, between Liverpool and Bari.
The new route will be operated by Ryanair, beginning in March 2017.
Bari is a vibrant area, located on the
entrance to the Adriatic Sea. It's regarded by many as the main gateway to
Southern Italy's Puglia Region, but although the province might not be an
important tourist destination, as of yet, it still has a lot to offer. The urban
areas are located on the plateau Murgia, which slope almost constantly down to
the sea and parts are noted as being like a maze. In the more historic parts,
often you will find narrow streets that hide interesting things for you to
discover, with parts of the area dating back to the 11th Century. Other
attractions include the Roman Catholic, Bari Cathedral, constructed between the
late 12th and 13th Centuries, the Promenade and picturesque old houses. It's
also worth making a note that the Metropolitan City of Bari is Southern Italy's
2nd largest populated area, that not only has an international airport, but it
is also has a major port, with connections to Greece, Albania and Croatia. The
old City of the Port of Bari is built on a peninsula, with the new City located
on either side of the peninsula.
Ryanair's Robin Kiely said:- "Ryanair is pleased to announce a new route
from Liverpool to Bari, which starts in March 2017, with a twice weekly service,
the 1st of our summer 2017 routes, with our full schedule set to be unveiled
soon. Liverpool Airport customers and visitors can look forward to further
improvements under Ryanair's 'Always Getting Better' programme that will include
new digital features, new cabin interiors and even more low fares."
Robin Tudor, Head of PR for Liverpool John Lennon Airport said:- "This is
yet another new route to be served from Liverpool and the only flight to Bari
from the North West. It comes hot on the heels of Ryanair's news of flights to
Marrakech from here, and gives the region's travellers an even greater choice of
destinations from Liverpool."

Midge Ure has announced Autumn and Winter Tour
MIDGE Ure, the man behind the iconic 80's band Ultravox, co-creator of Live Aid / Band Aid/ Live 8 with Bob Geldolf and the man
behind two of the biggest selling records of all time:- "Feed The World" and
'Vienna' announces a new tour for Autumn and Winter 2016.
Midge Ure's atmospheric and glittering career has spanned over 3 decades as a
former member of Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox and the iconic Rich Kids with Sex
Pistol Glen Matlock. As a solo artist, Midge has also been a tireless campaigner
for:- 'Save the Children', has an OBE, multiple:- 'Brit Awards',
'Ivor Novello' awards
and once came close to winning:- 'Celebrity Masterchef' whilst enjoying his cookery
hobby. A multi platinum selling artist, Midge has a magic touch when it comes to
writing hits that stand the test of time:- 'Vienna', despite only reaching
number 2 in the charts remains one of the biggest selling records of it's year
of release (1981) and last year was voted by Absolute Radio listeners as one of
the most influential pop records of the 80's. 'Do They Know It's
the biggest selling single in the history of the British Charts and his single:-
'If I Was' from his solo debut album:- 'The Gift' went straight in, at number 1.
On the 2015 'Breathe' tour, Midge started thinking about revisiting some older
material that he hadn't played for a very long time, including some of his
lesser known albums tracks. He decided it would be a fun idea to play something
from every album he has ever recorded right from his time in the Rich Kids,
through to Visage and Ultravox, and his latest solo album:- 'Fragile', which was
voted one of the top 10 albums of the year in 2014 by the Huffington Post. Of
course to delight his audiences, he will also include a selection of his hits
including:- 'Vienna', 'Fade to Grey' and 'If I
Was' and voila we have 'Something From Everything.' The tour format will provide a framework of texture and
diversity without detracting from the essence of the most important factor; the
songs everyone loves!
