What brillant news about Ryan Air - just shows the power of the people. Even coming from Ireland via London is great as the connections are perfect. We have no choice here in Ireland as only Falcon fly as a package tour operator and they are really expensive. This will give Easyjet a run for their money. Happy Days!
Fantastic news just checked out 7 days flying with Ryanair and 7 nights at the Paleo Inn hotel only with Thomsons in Septmber for £473 for two package price was £700. Realise would not include transfer, still a bargain
AAAARGH - shouldn't have looked - return flights for our dates in August with Ryanair are £137 pp, we just paid £260 ...

Just put some random dates in for August 25th for a week! It came to £414 pounds for two peeps! not unreasonable if Stansted is your local airport but I think £60 for one 20 kilo bag and £40 for 15 kilo is a little bit steep!! Still more flights to Corfu is a good thing at least..julesxxx
This is brilliant news for Irish Corfu lovers like myself and will be good for the islands tourism hopefully xx Trying so hard to tighten my budget to enable us to have our annual Corfu fix nothing booked yet but Im not giving up xx

Why good news for the Irish? Stansted a few flights each week will not make much difference to Corfu holiday trade. Can't see them operating from any other airports, wouldn't think demand justifies as Easyjet already into Corfu from at least three UK airports. If it does not go to plan, Ryanair will be in and out like a fiddlers elbow.

A: RyanAir fly from several Irish airports into Stansted. Just did a quick check and at least some of the waiting times between the two legs of the journey are good, and in addition travellers from Ireland will no longer need to change airlines to complete the journey. My Irish friends who live here in Corfu are delighted.

Ohhhh and just a few days ago booked with Easyjet - but I hope that it all works out with Ryan Air as Stansted just 20 minutes away - at the moment we have easyjet 05:55 so are booking hotel for overnight stay and car parking. As for the luggage allowance - we'll learn to be more economical as its easy to wash and rinse out clothes as they dry so quickly in the Corfiot Sun - I am pleased about this move - just wish I'd known about the new route before I booked!

Well if Ryanair were to fly from Manchester to Corfu, Id be on one like a shot. We have flown with them a couple of times to Tenerife and have had no problems whatsoever. BUT - you do have to stick to their Terms and Conditions, and you have to tick the "agree" box to say that you have read them - so there's no excuse for turning up with luggage thats overweight! We only take one 15kg bag between us - don't forget you have 10 kg of hand luggage each so make sure you maximise that to the full. But when it says only one piece of hand luggage, they don't mean one piece of hand luggage, plus your handbag, plus your duty free shopping, plus your special meal deal from Boots etc. One piece means one piece!
Also - keep an eye on the prices. Every now and then they will do flights without airport tax - and this makes a massive difference to the price. But they get snapped up quickly so you have to be on the ball!
