One of two new Ryanair routes launching this month from Bournemouth Airport gets underway this weekend.

Flights to Bergerac in France start on Saturday, June 4.

And later this month, on June 18, Ryanair will start a new service to the resort of Zadar on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast.

It brings to 15 the number of Ryanair routes available from Bournemouth this summer.

Both flights operate twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Bergerac is regarded as a quintessential medieval French town on the banks of the Dordogne and a gateway to south west France.

Zadar, meanwhile, is described by Rough Guides as “one of the coolest places on the Adriatic”, renowned for its Roman and Venetian ruins, uncrowded beaches and proximity to Croatia’s national parks.

Steve Gill, Managing Director of Bournemouth Airport, said: “Our summer season is well and truly underway and it’s great to see Ryanair bringing even more choice to holidaymakers from their local airport.

“We’ve got 33 destinations on offer this year to 16 countries and the travel industry really is starting to bounce back to meet strong demand for overseas travel.”

Ryanair’s 15 routes from Bournemouth include: Spain: Alicante, Girona (Barcelona), Gran Canaria, Malaga, Murcia, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife; Ireland: Dublin; Hungary: Budapest; Poland: Krakow and Wroclaw; Portugal: Faro and Lisbon; Croatia: Zadar and France: Bergerac.
