Stansted - Rodez

I have a feeling that Ryanair's Stansted-Rodez route is either receiving massive levels of marketing support... or it is causing concern in Dublin. Fares at short notice out of STN on multiple dates are less than APD and the load factor on the flight I took was a long way from what Ryanair usually achieve at STN. The only date that a flight from STN has anything that looks remotely profitable... is just before the August bank holiday when yields should be extremely high. The route seems to have a large number of retired Brits who have either moved to France or have a second home there - faced with a 2+ hour drive to Toulouse, this crowd can easily afford fares costing more than 10 pounds one way

As a summer seasonal route, it finishes for 2019 at the end of September. I would be surprised if it returns for summer 2020
