They(Ryanair) even mention St. Petersburg in their press release.

"Was die Kleinstadt richtig interessant macht: Russland ist lediglich 20 Minuten entfernt. Bis St. Petersburg, ... , sind es rund 200 Kilometer."

Translation:
"What makes the (little) city really interesting is that Russia is just 20 minutes away. To St. Petersburg, ..., it's about 200 kilometers.

CRL

Now it's Charleroi's turn:

Ryanair - 6 New Routes from Brussels (Charleroi) - London Stock Exchange

4 more aircraft (12 in total), 6 new routes increased frequencies on 14 routes.

But the post 2012 Boeing order looks in trouble:

How do the recent announcements on capacity increases tie in with deliveries - or are the aircraft becoming available as a result of reductions elsewhere on the network?

So far Ryanair have announced 15 aircraft being added to new / existing bases in March alone - Leeds (2), Bristol (1), Liverpool (1), Rygge (3), Alicante (3) and now Charleroi (4). This is in addition to the aircraft at Bari (2 in Jan '10) and Bari (1 in Feb '10).

And Weeze (1).

For completeness, the new routes for Charleroi are:
  • Nador (Ryanair increasing their presence on the Belgian - Morocco market)
  • Ibiza
  • Kaunas
  • Krakow (Wizz and Brussels Airlines won't be happy)
  • Zadar
  • Seville (about time!)

About aircrafts:
FR has 210 aircraft (more to come until March) right now but I think only 170 or 180 are needed during this winter.
STN (40 down to 24) and DUB (18 down to 14) lost 20 a/c and I doubt they'll gain all of them during next summer - any infos on that?
SNN down from 4 to 3 last July and only 1 based a/c next summer.

Isn't it more like this:
end of March/begin of April:
CRL (4), ALC (3), RYG (3), LBA (2), LPL (2), BRS (1), NRN (1), TPS (1), BLQ (1)
May: TPS (1)

With all of these a/c I count round about 195.
If STN goes up from 24 to 40, DUB from 14 to 18, PSA back to 6, REU back to 3 and AHO back to 2 it must be more or less 220.

Last summer (July) FR had about 190 aircrafts. If it goes up to 220 it would be an increase of 15%.

Although no announcement has been made, the summer schedule now on sale for Prestwick needs 6 based aircraft (up 1 from 5). There is a small increase in overall number of flights but the much longer stage lengths with many more flights to Spain and the Canaries will need an additional aircraft to operate the schedule.

At least some news to Porto. We will have now 5 weekly flights from CRL to OPO, instead of four.

Is it not the case they will be crewed and operated from the Southern end?

Some Prestwick flights will be operated from the southern end but the current schedule for next summer has 6 aircraft departing between 0600 and 0800 on 5 days of the week - Monday actually has 7 departures! It is clear an extra aircraft is required.

More likely the schedule is a WIP. I would be very surprised to see PIK get another unit this summer. This is not uncommon with the schedules, especially as they had an inbound turned and out by 0815 last year.

I would however be DELIGHTED to be wrong. Fingers crossed!

Lappeenranta

Earlier I have envisaged LPP as a dark horse in the region, so I'll keep my eye on it.
Today on the net I've spotted the audio version of the interview given by Ryanair's Erik Elmsater to Finnish Radio. Swede and Finn were talking to each other in English (in a funny, but understandable way). I hope the link will work, try to listen...

Ryanair negotiating 200 more 737-800

Ryanair is in final talks with Boeing about buying 200 more 737. (300 were already ordered before) However they claim Boeing's prices are still "too high" and threaten to buy european instead or delay their growth.
I didn't find this in english so here is a german language link.

Probably to start replacing some of the (relatively) older models - for which they'll still get a good price. The cheaper the new purchases, the more profit from the sales of the older fleet.

MOL sabre rattling again, I'm almost convinced he will go with Boeing.

The price is right...

I think the price has been agreed:

Delta, Ryanair Boeing orders in jeopardy?
Delta Air Lines may abandon an inherited order for 18 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, while Ryanair says talks for a new Boeing 737 order have broken down, according to media reports.
Delta inherited the 787 order when it merged with Northwest Airlines. But Flight International reported Monday that Hank Halter, Delta's chief financial officer, said the carrier would invest in upgrading its existing fleet rather than ordering new aircraft.
This follows previous previous comments and filings that suggested the 787 order might be in trouble.
Meanwhile, Reuters, Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal quoted outspoken Ryanair Chief Executive Michael O'Leary as saying Ryanair and Boeing reached agreement on the price for a deal to buy 200 aircraft, but talks broke down over the weekend because Boeing wanted to change delivery terms.
"We're going to make a final decision at the board meeting next Thursday," O'Leary told Reuters. "Unless there's some change in their position over the next week, it's off."
Airbus appears uninterested in trying to step in, with Chief Operating Officer John Leahy telling Bloomberg: "I would have no problem selling aircraft to O'Leary at reasonable prices, but I have not seen anything reasonable from him."
Bombardier's CSeries aircraft are too small for Ryanair's plans, O'Leary told Bloomberg.
Boeing spokesman Jim Condelles declined to comment on either order, citing company policy not to talk about its discussions with customers.

What could they mean by 'change delivery terms' I wonder?

It would be madness if he didn't but he'll do everything he can to get the price down.

So obviously Boeing accepted FR's price request but fine tuned another contract detail instead.
