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."

Talking of Scouse, did you know that the local foods in that area include:- Orecchiette, Sgagliozze, Zeppole and Pasticciotto? says:- "If Lecce is the South's Florence, Bari is its Bologna, a historic, but youthful Town with a high percentage of students lending it a cooler and hipper edge."  Do you agree?
