Ryanair launches flights to Portugal’s namesakeBerlin, 30.10.2014
On 26 October 2014, Ryanair added a new connection from Berlin Schönefeld to Porto to its flight schedule. The airline now flies to the city in the north of Portugal four times a week – every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday – and offers a total of seven destinations from Berlin Schönefeld in its winter flight schedule: Oslo Rygge, East Midlands, London Stansted, Dublin, Shannon, Porto and Milan Bergamo.
Porto not only lends its name to the country, but with a population of around 237,000, is also the third-largest city in Portugal. Due to its favourable location at the mouth of the River Douro in the Atlantic, Porto became a trading city early on, making a name for itself as an exporter of port wine. The historic district of Foz Velha, right by the River Douro, has been a protected site since 2002, inviting visitors to take a stroll through its winding alleyways. The terrace-like location of the Ribeira Old Town, sloping towards the river, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. Porto’s museums, theatres, churches and Casa da Música concert hall, which was built in 2005, make it one of Portugal’s most important cultural centres.
Ryanair is now offering families, groups and business travellers a new service: ‘Ryanair Family Extra’ offers families a range of discounts and better service at all airports. Groups of travellers can now make bookings directly via the website. And the Business Plus programme offers perks such as priority boarding, flexible tickets or premium seats.
Tickets for the new Berlin–Porto connection are available now at your local travel agency or can be booked online at:
