News to be announced within a few weeks: new base at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Ryanair set to take off from Schiphol - NL Times
My guess is they will either head to head with easyJet on the Amsterdam to London routes, either from Luton or Stansted.

Prepare for it to get messy and the bottom to fall out on ticket prices!

-------------------------------------------------

I wonder how the taxiing and turnaround situation will suit Ryanair at AMS, depending on the runway you land on, you can regularly have a 20 minute taxi to the gate. This eats into valuable to turnaround time.

Looks like also there will be new bases in Ibiza and Santiago de Compostela for S16 looking at some of the flight timings in the STN schedule.

Routes thought to be announced shortly

London Stansted 3 x daily
Madrid Daily
Naples Daily

More routs set to be announced shortly.
Naples would be the most remarkable news - a large white spot on the FR routemap until now!

The turnaround starts when the aircraft arrives on stand, taxi time is irrelevant.

When I worked at EDI, ATC made me laugh in the days of the FR B732s with the transmission "Ryanair 812 you are cleared to hurtle on to stand 1A".

At AMS I can envisage them coming off 36R stuck behind a dawdling EVA Air or the like, looking for an overtaking opportunity

Or is that just me?

Landing Config,
Taxi time is highly relevant and outside of cost one of the main reasons that FR haven't jumped at many large airports, though that is changing...

FA10,
Re Naples, how long until FR do open a base there? EasyJet have retreated from bases are MAD and FCO. And more than every FR seem to be challenging easyJet more than ever...big opposition on domestics ex STN recently, AMS seems to be set for go, CPH routes etc.

EasyJet dont waste money usually fighting it out on new routes, but it seems likely easyJet will need to face the challenge more rigorously...

In the past it was RYR who kept away from major airports and opened up the provincial airports. They trumpeted, often correctly, that with short taxi times, low ATC congestion = no delays, fast baggage collection times, good enough public transport that the pax got to their destination faster than via the major hub. easyjet often chose the major hub. RYR kept out of their way. Then, a few years ago, e.g. MAN, MAD, FCO et al RYR followed ez into some of those major hubs. You're have to analyse the routes to see how much head to head there was, but by venturing into expensive major hubs, and following the orange ball, RYR seemed to be adjusting its model. In 2000 ez was AMS's 2nd largest user after KLM, even though they didn't have a base there; they had many movements in/out and wanted desperately to have a base. They cancelled the idea of a base in 2001. AMS's resistance, and other logistics to scheduling changed their mind. The growth of the airline, and a change of heart in AMS, has now opened up the opportunity. For RYR it is a major change, although I thought MAD was also a major shift in strategy and certainly FCO. Latino attitudes and Irish ones don't mix. I can see MOL tearing his hair out soon. CPH proved a major hub too far. We'll see about AMS. Both those northern countries have a tinge of Latino in their culture.

Cost is a separate matter. We are talking about turnaround times.

FR use either a 25 or 35 minute turnaround, the latter becoming much more common across Spanish and some major airports. 35 minutes is more less normal for most carriers now days anyway. LGW gets 30 minutes.

Anyway flight times are from push back to arrival on stand.

Think they are just trying the DUB - AMS route to see how it works
Before throwing more destinations in.
I would have loved to have seen STN - AMS.

They are adding DUB AMS to penetrate more of the Aer Lingus network. Simples. AMS may be a bit different to BRU for them as Aer Lingus has strong feed to KLM from that route, where as BRU wouldn't have nearly as much, but it has other stuff like government ministers etc...

Aer Lingus will do a good job holding its own and with growing transatlantic feed the AMS route will survive..

Does anyone know when reservation for flights in March and April open? A lot of flights from Manchester are showing as sold out for these times and I can't imagine they're fully booked already?

Grrr

Ryanair plans to introduce a new personalised website with digital features such as ‘hold the fare’ and destination content from October, as well as an enhanced insurance offering.

New crew uniforms and improved inflight menus are planned from November and new cabin interiors from January.

Defibrillators will be deployed on all aircraft from November, following passenger consultation.

The 2016 flying programme will see 37 aircraft based at Stansted running 126 routes, including extra flights to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Berlin and Cologne.

The airline will operate 18 routes from Luton using four aircraft based at the airport and is raising frequency to Copenhagen.

Five routes from Gatwick will serve Dublin, Cork, Kaunas, Shannon and Seville with capacity rising to six daily flights to the Irish capital.

Ryanair chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs, said: “After a record summer 2015, where we grew our traffic and load factor and improved our industry leading punctuality, Ryanair is pleased to launch our London summer 2016 schedule, which will deliver 22.8m million customers at Stansted, Gatwick and London Luton airports.

“After introducing allocated seating, a second free carry-on bag allowance, Family Extra and Business Plus services, and reducing our fees in year one, we’ve continued to roll out year two of our ‘Always Getting Better’ programme, which has included new native apps, reduced sports and airport fees and the launch of Ryanair Car Hire, which went live on Ryanair.com yesterday [Tuesday].

“Our 103 million customers can look forward to further improvements in the coming months, including our ground breaking personalised website, with exciting new digital features such as ‘hold the fare’ and real customer destination reviews, and improved menus, new cabin crew uniforms and new cabin interiors on board, with more to come in year three, as we continue to offer so much more than just lowest fares.”

Ryanair reject claims they plan to reopen CPH base and operate it similarly to their seasonal base in MRS.

"The brash “Chelsea blue” and aggressive yellow that have for years have defined the airline’s cheap and cheerful approach are to be toned down, it was announced this week. By making the blue in its uniforms and livery darker (it will now be a calmer “Spurs blue”) and reducing the quantity of bright yellow in its branding, Easyjet hopes to project a more serious and upmarket image."

The above was from the article which shows how badly written and put together it is..................... are they incapable of actually reading it?

Add to the Marketingspeak of claims "They got the colour wrong" shows how poor the article is.

Every brand does a refresh in the same way that people redecorate their home or change their car which will have been refreshed with add ons and colours.

Shades of a wannabee journalist seeking to make a story from nothing and failing miserably.
