Low cost airline Ryanair began operating at Bristol 26 years ago with a route to Dublin and today offers passengers in the South West a choice of 28 destinations.
To celebrate Ryanair is releasing 100,000 seats across its European network at prices starting from £19.99 for travel on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in March and April.
These 'all in' cheap flights will be available on more than 1,000 of Ryanair's European routes, but must be booked on the Ryanair.com website before midnight on Monday, February 17.
Ryanair's £19.99 sale fare includes all non-optional taxes, charges and fees, so passengers who only travel with carry-on luggage and decline our priority boarding service can book, check-in online and fly for this under £20 fare.
Bristol Airport aviation director Shaun Browne said: "We are delighted to reach this landmark with one of our longest-standing airline partners.
"Ryanair's commitment to the South West and South Wales has made a great range of destinations available at low fares for millions of leisure and business passengers across the region."

Bristol Airport is the UK's fifth largest airport outside London and the ninth largest in the UK.
Planning permission is in place to develop and enhance facilities to enable Bristol to handle 10 million passengers per annum.
Development commenced in November 2011 and the first of more than 30 separate projects – the construction of three new aircraft stands – was completed in spring 2012.
Other major components include a central walkway designed to accommodate future long-haul services and set for completion in June 2014, an extension to the terminal building to almost double its size, a new multi-level car-park with public transport interchange on its top level, and an on-site hotel.
Bristol Airport directly employs approximately 200 people with a wider employee community of nearer 3,000 from North Somerset and beyond and offers direct services to more than 100 airports across the world.
