Ryanair plans new routes to Morocco

Notice: cheapflights

Ryanair has signed an accord with the Moroccan government that could see the airline operate up to 20 new routes to the country. The five-year agreement comes after six months of talks between the airline and the government that commits Ryanair to carrying one million passengers per annum by the end of the agreed period.
Earlier this month Ryanair announced it would begin flights from the French airport of Marseilles to three cities in Morocco - Fez, Marrakesh and Oujda.
Michael Cawley, Ryanair’s deputy chief executive, said: “Ryanair’s commitment to establish up to 20 routes and carry close to one million passengers per annum on flights to Morocco is a vote of confidence by the airline in the excellence and attractiveness of Morocco as a destination both for weekend breaks, mid-week trips and longer holidays.
“Ryanair will be making many more new route announcements in Morocco over the coming months and years as we build on the solid basis which this long term agreement provides.”

In March Ryanair’s low-cost rival easyJet announced it would begin flights from Gatwick to Marrakech with one-way fares starting at £30.99.

Our Leader speaks ...

The Taoiseach, speaking in Bodenstown, said today, that as far as he is concerned, the bid to take over Aer Lingus will not succeed.

He added ...

"What is vitally important for us is that the Dublin Airport Authority, that it's strategic plans for the future are delivered on, and we have made it absolutely clear that the Government will not sell our share,” he said.

(Did he mean "Aer Lingus" in place of "the DAA"?)

Also today, EI employees will be increasing their share of the airline, buying shares off the govt (at €2.20!) ...

Hi Akerosid,

A couple of questions; Why would the ESOP buy the shares from the government....do they not trust them not to sell out? Also If MOL has invested 200M in EI does it make sense for him to compete with EI and thereby reduce his investment to C.100M by driving the share price down? Would this loss be supported by his shareholders, even if the potential gain was well in excess of this? All of his comments to date suggest he will remain a holder.

Beja airport

For railway:
Beja is the 175,20 km of Lisbon, but it has the advantage of already having a a railway for the Base. Today the trains are of low speed with only not 97,10 Km electric line, but in 2008 36,6 km goes to be electrified and to be endowed with modern railroad signalling. The speed is of 120/160 km/hour. If the lowcost airline go to Beja 63,5 and remains 52,4 that they lack to close the ring, quickly will be electrified. In three or four years we have a new railway to Badajoz.
The distance to Badajoz is 208,50 and to Faro is 236,10 by train.


For road:
Beja for road is at 185 km of Lisbon a great part in motorway and the remain for highway.
Badajoz is a 167,69 Km of Beja Airport. Near the airport is highway route and the remain is in motorway.
Faro is a 167,42 Km of Beja Airport. Near the airport is highway route and the remain is in motorway.

You can see the airport Beja site in http://www.edab.pt/ whre can see an airport perspective.

Hi McCloud,

It looks as if the ESOT decision to buy shares from the govt was a pre-arranged tactic, in that they had an option to do so and the purchase was at a fixed price, so it was done outside the stock exchange.

As to MO'L, I get the impression that he is now acting out of pique; the mask has slipped quite seriously, in that the message - while being implied until recently (when Michael Cawley hinted at what would happen if the bid failed), is now quite open: "blood on the carpet out of Dublin next year" if the bid fails. In other words, it's an open ultimatum: do it our way now, or we'll strangle EI next year. It's not a particularly nice way (to put it very mildly) of doing business, but the problem is that he could do that, if he so wished ... but he still has that shareholding and if he were to do that, he'd effectively be destroying his own investment, so arguably he's painted himself into a corner?

If he reneges and does sell out, could he make any money? Highly unlikely, because the very fact of his pulling out would send the message that "now we're going to make life very difficult" would send the price south very quickly, especially as he'll be trying to sell nearly a fifth of the airline. So, he is stuck and also, let's not forget that, having said he would remain as a minority shareholding, he'd be seeing as having gone back on his word - lots of ammunition for those who say he can't be trusted.

In effect, having FR on board as a shareholder is EI's best insurance policy; it goes beyond that, because - apart from forcing down costs and sacking so many of the workforce - much of what FR has promised for EI can actually be done with FR as a minority shareholder, for example, the much needed dusting off and expansion of the long haul product.

About the Ryanair interest in fly to Beja airport I’m receive as reply to an mine email the following:

Beja Airport, when opened to the operation, will receive any aerial operator, since whom authorized by Aeronautical Authority. Another restriction does not have any, resctriction how much the company said "low cost".
Compliments

Here's Beja disenchanted by Google Earth. Quite deserted scenery. But this is where the FR passengers are growing.

Well, o worked in Beja as an ATC a few years ago, and there are no big transports to get there. The train station is in the town, 10 min drive, but 10kms. I know there are diesel trains, but not for long...

I use to took 2 hours on a normal cruise in my car (120km/h) and the first 50 km to get to the highway that brings you to lisbon is a little road, with some towns in the side and some traffic lights to control the speed.

to reach algarve, most precisely albufeira, you will take 1h30 min, and the first 50km is also in poor condition.

The airbase itself is good, long runway (3450mts) with one ils cat1, ndb, and a vor/dme out of service

They want to make a civil apron, like someone already post the link, but in 2003, when i started, they told me that the works would begin the next week. Until today, nothing on the empty field....

Thats all folks :P (sorry for the long post)

French say 'non' to Ryanair route
Tuesday, 24 October 2006, 07:50 GMT 08:50 UK
BBC
A new Ryanair service between Stansted Airport in Essex and the French town of Deauville may be grounded before it even takes off in March next year.

Some residents across the Channel have set up a No Budget Flights Association to block the route and stop tourists flooding in to their "chic" resort. They claim an influx of people would cheapen the image of the town.

Ryanair said business and tourism in the area would "reap enormous benefits" from the three times a week flights.

Why would a BA passenger want to fly from LHR to DUB or SNN or ORK and then onto the US when they can go direct? Same goes for the French and German pax?

I am sure MOL has everyones best interests at heart and will keep the prices nice and low if he was ever lucky enough to get a monopoly and buy out Aer Lingus- not.
