Welcoming another new Ryanair route onto the network, Head of Airline Relations at Stansted Airport, Mark Souter said:
“Stansted offers more scheduled connections to mainland Europe than any other UK airport and this first UK connection direct to Ostrava is great news for travellers looking for a new and exciting destination and one I’m certain will be very popular.
“Ostrava joins Nuremberg, Kefalonia, Strasbourg, Dole, Tallin and Maastricht as the new routes launched by Ryanair from Stansted so far this year and I’m thrilled to welcome this new service onto our network.”
Commenting for Ryanair, Lisa Cashin said:
“We are delighted to launch this new route from Stansted to Ostrava. It offers travellers a new and exciting destination to explore and with fares starting from as little as £23 there has never been a better time to visit the Czech Republic”
Sylvie Taborova from Czech Tourism said:
“The Czech Republic is a very popular destination welcoming over 350,000 visitors a year from the UK alone and we are delighted that Ryanair is now launching the first direct flights to Ostrava in the east of the country, giving more choice and options for visitors wanting to explore our country further. This is a very exciting development and Ostrava is looking forward to welcoming visitors and showcasing all the exciting things to see and do there.”
Located in the East of the Czech Republic, close to the Polish border, Ostrava is filled with things to see and do including the Observatory and Planetarium, Silesian-Ostrava Castle that dates back to the 13th Century and World of Miniatures Miniuni filled with models of world famous iconic buildings such as Big Ben, Eiffel Tower and Brandenburg Gate, set amongst 1.5 hectares of landscaped gardens.
Getting around the sights is also fun with vintage tram, bus and trolleybus rides operating around the City; and dining out will play a big part of any visit with an abundance of culinary delights and international flavours to choose from and no visit will be complete without sampling the City’s locally brewed beer “Ostravar”.
