Ryanair has announced a new route connecting Liverpool Airport to Ireland West Knock.
People travelling through Liverpool will be able to access the daily service to the Irish airport, which is located just outside Charlestown in County Mayo, from October 27th.
Annette Kearney, route development manager at Ireland West Knock, said the route is "another significant step" in the airport’s growth.
She added: "We look forward to welcoming visitors from Britain’s north-west and I’m sure the Liverpool region will equally benefit from a boost of Irish leisure and business travellers, especially from the thousands of Liverpool FC and Everton supporters in our catchments."
Bridget Dowling of Ryanair predicted that the new service would be as successful as existing connections between West Knock and Bristol Airport, Nottingham/East Midlands, Luton Airport and London Stansted.
The low-fares airline has announced expansions from a number of UK hubs in recent months and this week opened its 25th base at Birmingham Airport.
