Manchester-Menorca service added by Ryanair

A Menorca-Manchester service has been added to Ryanair’s roster for 2022. The twice-a-week service will get underway in May and run until the end of October. Manchester joins East Midlands and Newcastle as a Ryanair hub offering Menorca flights; the budget carrier also has a Dublin-Menorca service.

The Manchester-Menorca flights are scheduled for Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Ryanair commercial director Jason McGuinness said: “We are pleased to add this new route to Menorca as part of the UK’s summer ’22 schedule, offering our customers more amazing European destinations to choose from when planning their long-awaited summer holidays. Having added over 560 new routes and opened 16 bases throughout the last 12 months, Ryanair is now looking ahead to summer ’22 and the addition of 65 new B737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft to its fleet.”

Archaeologists uncover trove of Roman treasures in Menorca

Archaeologists working in Menorca have unearthed what has been described as an outstanding cache of materials thought to have belonged to Roman soldiers and dating from around 100BC. The trove was uncovered at Son Catlar, Ciutadella, by a team of researchers from universities across Spain, who in summer 2021 started to dig around a previously discovered gateway and street. A large quantity of objects typically carried by Roman soldiers were found including weapons, knives, arrowheads, spearheads, projectiles, surgical tools and a bronze spatula. Fernando Prados, researcher at the University of Alicante Institute for Research in Archaeology and Historical Heritage (INAPH) described the discoveries made during this sixth season of the project as “outstanding”.
