Ryanair Official Airline
Portugal Ocean Race is taking off with a fantastic new Sponsor.
Ryanair, the world's favorite airline, announced today (Sept. 7) its partnership with the Portugal Ocean Race. Ryanair pioneered low cost air travel to Europe and made travel more accessible for everyone. Portugal was a pioneer in the sailing world and opened up new worlds for old Europe. Ryanair is therefore pleased with the partnership with Portugal Ocean Race, considered by many as the future of affordable ocean racing, to promote and expand the strong maritime tradition in Portugal, while offering the guaranteed lowest airfares to and from Portugal.
Ryanair's Daniel de Carvalho, said:
"Ryanair has increased tourism to the Portuguese airports where it operates on an unprecedented scale. Always attentive to new opportunities to promote Portugal as a tourist destination of excellence, it is with pleasure that we partner with the Portugal Ocean Race. Portugal as a pioneer of the sea opened up new worlds to Europe and since 2005 Ryanair has opened Portugal to millions of European tourists. Our partnership with the Portugal Ocean Race aims to make the historical and cultural wealth of Portugal more visible and attractive to tourists who now enjoy the guaranteed lowest airfares in Europe."
Ricardo Diniz of Portugal Ocean Race, said:
"Thanks to the quality and reliable Ryanair service, Portugal is now visited by many more millions of people every year. It is therefore a natural and exciting fit for the Portugal Ocean Race to work with our favorite airline, Ryanair. Ryanair will now assist the team at POR, competitors and other parties interested in enjoying flights across Europe, up to and during the Portugal Ocean Race."
We look forward to welcoming you to Portugal on a Ryanair flight soon!
