@ eu01,

Do you mean tomorrow or wednesday 21st?

If these are to be the new bases anyone care to speculate on the routes?

If it is a consolation.... - as a replacement, Sterling will start MMX-LGW in march 08, once daily:

NB 157/158 MMX 1915 - 2015 LGW 2045 - 2315 MMX

Well, this is today, Wednesday 14th. MOL has already left Bratislava heading towards Krakow. The press conference in Bratislava wasn't very sensational. Shorlty a base in CE Europe will be announced, Bratislava has big chances, but also a second city - in Poland (so KRK supposedly) could be chosen. The base will NOT be created in Vienna, at least for the timebeing.

The FR boss has also said that SkyEurope would not survive more than 5 months.

And in Krakow... I still do not have any detailed relation, but as far as I know
  • MOL has joined the celebration of a milionth' passenger in Krakow
  • FR is satisfied with Poland and the base there will be announced in the first half of 2008
  • it will probably NOT be in Krakow at the moment (costs, costs, costs)
  • within two years Ryanair will be creating up to FOUR bases in Poland

Bout time we had a Polish base or two. . . . be very popular with crew to get a transfer.

With easyJet growing very fast now and playing catch up with the number of routes, bases and a/c does anyone else think that Ryanair may be looking to buy another airline, and take advantage of airlines that are feeling the pinch? Was talk about Air Berlin a few months ago, don't see how it would of worked to be honest.

And isn't it about time Ryanair expanded in the new lot of EU counties

I'll continue with the "Ryanair bases" subject, some new facts have just emerged.

After FR created two new bases in Spain to the South of Barcelona (Alicante and Valencia) it seemed rather obvious that a long-time favourite Reus would lose its chances to become one. Somewhat unexpectedly, the local government in Catalonia has finally reached an agreement with FR today, and yes, one of the new bases WILL be created in Reus soon.

Mr. Manel Nadal, the Secretary General for Transport of the Catalan region announced that Reus (Tarragona) would become in 2008 the second base of operations of Ryanair in Catalonia, with two or three aircraft to be based in Reus in winter and five or six (?!) in the summer.

Thus, the city will get about 17 daily flights from Ryanair and thereafter the number of weekly operations could rise to 130, depending on the success.

In addition, the airline will boost domestic routes, with destinations like Grenada, Seville, Santiago de Compostela, Balearic Islands, and possibly the Canary Islands. Mayor of Reus, Lluis Miquel Perez explained that Ryanair envisaged the airport as an "optimal" and "better than others" to conduct the domestic flights.

The government, local government and businesses have reached a preliminary agreement that will involve promoting new flights from Reus, financed by the territory and the Generalitat.

According to the City of Reus, this agreement will be officially signed before Christmas and will be made public in the first half of January. Mayor of Reus has expressed satisfaction with the preliminary agreement which, according to him, means that "Ryanair has Reus." The officials stressed that the airport operator Aena has "done its homework well" by improving the facilities in Reus and providing them with a new terminal and other equipment required. They also wanted to ensure that the expansion in Reus "shall not influence the growth of Girona, which will continue its expansion as in the past."

Somewhat more precise data about the point in time when a new base in Reus will be started:
El desarrollo de la base se hará en dos etapas: en la primera, a partir de octubre de 2008, acogerá dos aviones, y en la siguiente, en verano del 2009, dispondrá de seis
The first stage in October 2008: 2 planes
The second stage: Summer 2009: 6 planes
(according to elperiodico.com)

...and some new destinations to start from October (listed by diaridetarragona.com)
París (Francia), Milán (Italia), Bruselas (Bélgica), Eindhoven (Holanda), Estocolmo (Suecia), Goteborg (Suecia), Bremen (Alemania), Oslo (Noruega) y Villund (Dinamarca)

Regarding the Reus base, I read (but I can't find the article back), that Ryanair will also operate 4 domestic routes from the airport...

Some swiss publications say that ryanair may be interested in basing up to 7 aircraft in GVA and BSL.

Any truth in this?

OPO?

Interesting about OPO. Flew back to STN from there on the 13th and there was about a dozen people being escorted by RYR officials. They all had a tour of the galley etc. and deplaned together. Said to Mrs. Foxile at the time I thought this could mean a base for OPO very soon(?)
Nearly posted something about this last week with all the talk of new bases but didn't want to look naive

Ryanair holds training courses down in Porto, might just be students. I get alot of students on my EMA-DUB flights and if i get the chance i show them the rear galley and get them to tell me where stuff is like the halons etc. But a base in Porto has been on the cards for a while, its more of a case of when not if, same goes for RIX, BTS, SXF, AGP

Any ideas of routes? OPO-EMA

One of our "long term CC " (very few of them) told me a couple of months ago it was to be a base, look at how many orange lights you see at night-time , plenty of people there, close to NW of Spain, and lots of Portugese living and working abroad, why not ? Weather a bit crappy/Atlantic though, but nonetheless the tourist market seems bouyant enough though.
