German routes axed by Ryanair

BUDGET airline Ryanair has blamed a new German tourist tax for its decision to axe 34 routes next summer. Flights connecting Liverpool to Bremen and Birmingham to Dusseldorf are among those to be scrapped as a result of Germany's €8 (£6.79p) tax on flights. Ryanair's route between Kerry and Dusseldorf will also cease.
