In a boost for Super League teams and fans based in Yorkshire, Leeds Bradford Airport has announced that Perpignan will be a new destination for Ryanair flights.
The news provides a much easier route when attending Catalans Dragons away games, with the Stade Gilbert Brutus Stadium just a six-minute drive from Perpignan Airport.
Flights will go twice weekly from the Yorkshire-based airport, on Mondays and Thursdays, starting from 1st June 2023.
They will run through to 31st October before restarting again in June the following year.
This is a huge boost for Super League teams and fans who have matches away against Catalans Dragons between these times, having previously had the task of travelling to Perpignan via Barcelona.
Between June and the end of October, the Dragons have home fixtures against the likes of Leeds Rhinos and Huddersfield Giants, giving those teams and their fans the chance to travel direct to Perpignan ahead of the game.
The flight will take on average around two hours, with Ryanair’s pricing for one-way tickets starting at £34.99.
One-way and return flights to Perpignan from Leeds Bradford Airport are already on sale and can be purchase at ryanair.com.
Flights will go twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays, starting from 1st June through to 31st October.
Prices start from £34.99 one way.
