Ryanair has continued its sporting springtime seat splurge by announcing 8,000 extra seats for horseracing punters headed to the 2023 Cheltenham Festival next March.
The move follows similar seat sales launched earlier this month. Last week, Ryanair added 10,000 seats for flights servicing Rugby’s Six Nations Championship, which kicks-off in February. A week before that, the airline announced 5,000 extra seats to cover Champions League and Europa League matches, also in the spring.
The Cheltenham seats will cover Ryanair flights from Dublin, Cork and Shannon with all flights bound for Birmingham. The additional services will operate throughout Cheltenham week – March 13-18.
Ryanair’s Director of Marketing, Dara Brady, said: “The luck of the Irish was strong at Cheltenham Festival last year, and with 8,000 extra seats now on sale for Irish race goers – the Irish support will be even stronger for the 2023 festival. We have flights departing from Dublin, Cork and Shannon from Monday, 13th March throughout the week, so race goers can avail of the lowest fares with Ryanair and soak up the atmosphere across the four-day festival. Seats are selling fast so fans are urged to gallop onto the Ryanair.com website and book their racing getaway today.”
