All, 2 new destinations dont mean a new based unit at EMA. There are 5 departures within 1 hr of each other in the morning rush hour on Tues, Thur and Sat with the inclusion of Riga. the destinations with EMA based units are Dubin, Lodz, Nimes, Rome and now Riga.

With the addition of BUD and RIX, does it mean that Grenoble and Salzburg wont return for the winter season???? it they do return, another based aircraft could be required

Regards

Back to the free flights discussion, and RYR saying it is to ensure all new a/c are full. Could this have something to do with their new-route/airport policy. It used to be that a 3 year deal was struck such that RYR guaranteed so many pax through the airport. If they succeeded then the rock bottom contract price was frozen for years ahead. If not, then it was renegotiated with little leverage for RYR.

This week M'OL spoke with a Spanish journalist about the new Madrid routes. In this interview he was asked when will a 3rd Spanish base be announced. His answer was vague about when but he added "it'll probably be in Southern Spain". This totally contradicts the earlier announced plans for a Reus base this year!

If it is in southern Spain, could Granada be a possibility since they announced a GRO route, which isnt on sale yet? maybe it will go on sale when the base is announceD?

Well, MOL's interpretation of the geography is a little... weird sometimes (there is nothing to see in Gdansk, remember?) As Reus is located to the south of Barcelona, in some way it could be like in... southern Spain, I guess ...

Why is no-one based at AGP? Is it politics, congestion, cost? Years ago rumours had it that ej might take the plunge; same for NCE & AMS, and we know what happened about those ideas. Does seem odd to have so many flights into an airport from so many different places and not consider a base. Is there vacant space on the military side? In the summer season, there are waves of a/c all arriving/departing at the same time. I wonder if operating out of phase with these waves might be more effective. Taking off AGP at 06.00 arrives into UK at 08.00 local. Most of the traffic is south bound then.

What are the rumours about a new charter/LoCo airport midway AGP & Grenada?

Hey Ryanair,when are you going to base a couple more aircrafts here at Prestwick?

In the last few days Ryanair have already announced many more routes from European bases,disclosing the use of several new aircrafts to be delivered starting from this Autumn.
But it's been quite a while ago since they last added an A/C to Prestwick's base to develop some more routes.
Not so long ago Ryanair were continuosly boasting the partnership with Scotland's "fastest growing airport" after the provision of the new hangar facilities.

Is something spoiling the relationship between Ryanair and Prestwick airport?

Hi glasgowpik and welcome to PPRuNe!!
I've been thinking exactly the same as you but to be honest the last time I flew from Prestwick was in March to Charleroi. The departure lounge was overcrowded to say the least. This was due to a new bar that was taking up space previously occupied by seats. The seats that were there were far too close together. Many people had no choice but to stand until their flight was called. I think that the departure lounge will have to be expanded before new routes are announced by any airline. I haven't been in the airport since March so maybe someone could tell me if things have improved in any way since then.

Thanks James for the welcome!
You're right Prestwick is a bit of work in progress but Girona isn't the biggest of airports and probably not that clean either,nevertheless Ryanair is still expanding to 9 aircrafts there.

I'm glad you,and maybe others,also noticed the recent lack of expansion by Ryanair on Prestwick,meaning that something has changed in that partnership.

Even for easy targets,such as summer flights to holiday resorts that signed the famous "subsidy" contracts,thus entitled to be connected with somewhere,Ryanair preferred to use other UK bases or even Stockholm.

Who has some information on this?
