Are you sure its a aircraft swap as other routes have very long turnaround. I was flying back to EDI last Saturday and my flight was delayed a few hours. A flight from Dublin arrived after 20.00 and didn't depart until 22.30. It was the same aircraft that operated the return flight. Having checked the FR website the turnaround time is 1 hour 50 minutes.

Its slot restrictions and if you look at the schedules its mainly afternoon and evenings flights particualy on weekends which have the extended turnarounds. Aircraft changes can take place but its not to common.

As an example, in the Commission's latest update on its investigation into Angouleme airport and its aid to Ryanair, it notes that in 2008 the net payment (charges payable by Ryanair, minus marketing support payable by the airport) was -€14 per passenger.
How many passengers actually used these routes, and from where?

It is my job to keep an eye on routes, I wasn't particularly on the ball back then, but I have no recollection of Ryanair going there.

I can't see that sort of cash being available at LYS. The routes already exist, so why should Ryanair be given money when others wouldn't?

However, as already mentioned, LYS does have a sizeable catchment, not to mention plenty of reason for inward visitors too - food year round, and skiing to burn off those calories in the winter.

Then again, so does BVA. I think the real reason why Ryanair don't like setting up base in France is the labour laws.

Ryanair used to fly Stansted-Angouleme - it may well have been a summer-only route. The route was announced around 18th December 2007 with the first flight around 1st April 2008.

Up to early Feb 2010, flights were being offered for sale for travel in the period April 2010 - June 2010. Sometime around mid Feb 2010, Ryanair announced the cancellation of the route.

It looks as if flights from late March 2010 onwards did not operate

BHX to Palma

Palma is not a new route as such, but a new route for winter, it has only ever operated in summer.

I read an interview with RTM representative who said that RTM didn't want to prostitute itself to Ryanair.
Well they can always hedge their bets on Europort Express!

History tends to show that those airports which don't want to prostitute themselves usually end up doing so, although I would have thought at RTM they would also face a slots / noise issue.

It wasn't too long ago that suggestions were being made that FR was looking at AMS too.


In 2000 ez was trying to get into AMS, but was blocked. They tried RTM and received a similar reply. Neither happened and HV started a RTM base instead. Admittedly ez is now a different animal, FR is not. Perhaps the burgers of RTM have still the same attitude. MST is one of the most noise sensitive airports in Netherlands. Why do you think Transavia never had a base there? It used to be a very strict 0600-2300. I would have thought that too restrictive for RYR. Scheduling up to 22.45 is one thing, achieving it on a regular basis is another. However, combined with CRL, NRN, HHN then MST or EIN would fill a gaping hole in geographical coverage and should turn the region into blue & yellow. I'd be curious to know what the financial deal with MST is. They would not like to be pushed around. The locals got rid of the night freight business and even Air Exel went bust. MST seems to be a grave yard for airlines, but good luck. Did ez not close down its only route to Berlin?

June Traffic

Hi all,

Ryanair seems to have not sent their latest traffic data onto the normal stockmarket newsfeeds. The news is on their website as "Ryanair’s June Traffic Up 460,000 Passengers" but fails to give any % growth numbers like they normally do. June growth was just 6% and the rolling 12 growth is 2%.

While Easyjet is still taking pax from failed airlines it seems FR are almost stalled.

Funny how it went quiet when FR results announced.

The 51st Base in Maastricht was announced on the Ryanair.com German news section - interestingly not on the Dutch site.

Airport Self Service Kiosks

I notice that self-service kiosks are available at LPL, and according tot he Ryanair website they are also available at a number of other airports. Their website states "Payments for services such as priority boarding and baggage fees can be made at the airport kiosk up to 40 minutes prior to the scheduled flight departure."

Can anyone provide a list of the airport locations and also let me know whether the kiosks charge the Airport Checkin Fee ?

Just seen Ryanair's proposed extra charges for Spanish airports for flights departing Spain and booked before 2nd July.
Apart from Madrid and Barcelona, where the rise is about 10 euros per person, the increases everywhere else seems to be 2 euros per person or less. I can see that this might be the final straw for Easyjet if their Madrid base is either unprofitable or only marginally profitable.

If this is the increase in cost that other airlines have to pay as well, I'm rather surprised that the Spanish Govt even bothered imposing the fee increase.

Anyone else have thoughts on this ?

Ironically, the fuss made by Ryanair last year in the dispute with Alicante Airport over the use of airbridges would have meant an increase to be passed on to the customer of a piddly 50 cents. They must be incandescent with rage over this increase.

This is not an anti-Ryanair move, it's a cynical cash grab by a broke government which will hit mostly the network airlines who do most of their Spanish business at BCN and MAD - and who have to absorb the increases for all tickets booked before the Spanish announcement.

The Spanish action is almost certainly in breach of the EU Airport Charges Directive. Remains to be seen whether it will be legally challenged.

I take it you mean as a base? I flew LTN-AMS with U2 (or EZ as iirc they still were then, never seen the logic of that change) in 1998.

I can see that this might be the final straw for Easyjet if their Madrid base is either unprofitable or only marginally profitable.
They have already announced a major cull at MAD - base is going, some routes operated from other bases will stay. I suspect they might hang around a little longer at BCN, as it has beaches nearby, unlike MAD.
