MOL talks a good game and we have seen backtracking before - e.g charges in both Stansted and Dublin - both increasing and decreasing capacity a couple of times, allocated seating etc.
I believe they still have ambitions of being the UK's largest airline, just to get one over on EZY - but they have a large network in Europe to fall back on, which Jet2 doesn't - so who can blame them for giving FR a run for their money.

MOL has been mouthing off against Brexit, but at the same time announcing significant increases in ex-UK routes.
So far, announcements about Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool. Even Luton has a new route.
Perhaps he's realizing that the Cameron/Osborne scare tactics were just that.

Most likely. I've noticed some of the new routes announced from the UK to Girona (notably Glasgow-PIK and Edinburgh, possibly one or two others?) have still not appeared on the Ryanair website... so guessing something that may involve Girona too?

It will, a lot like GLA and PIK were announced as Glasgow Summer 2017. Barcelona will consist of BCN, REU and GRO.

looks like no new routes for EMA next summer. Disappointed at that. The airport seems to have resigned itself to losing out all round to MAN, BHX and LBA.

MAG seem to be ignoring the airport as a passenger option and pushing the freight operations.

Same here at Bristol. After watching all the press releases for other uk airports I was eagerly awaiting the press release for Brs with some new routes etc particularly after increasing winter services by 20%. Let's hope there be something later on

It seems to be expanding Newcastle a lot because we only had one route this time last year.


BRS and EMA have plenty of Ryanair destinations. I'm sure they'll bring out some exciting destinations for you

No more UK expansion said MOL after the Brexit vote. Well no problem, Jet2 just launched 21 routes from STN.

Ryanair has accused the Greek government of ignoring its attempts to talk about reducing airport taxes in the low season in return for increased flights. Ryanair’s Chief Commercial Officer, David O’Brien, told Euronews Greek airport departure taxes are so high that the carrier is going to stop flying altogether to Kos next year and will reduce flights to other islands.
O’Brien said they had pledged to bring an additional five million passengers to Greece if there was a reduction in the taxes /.../
He pointed out that on a ticket price of 43 euros, tax of 40 euros – the amount for Athens airport – made no sense.
As reported by Euronews.

Passengers or seats? What happens if they fall short and Greece gets less pax tax? Does RYR make up the short-fall? Bold promises indeed.

God, yet its perfectly fine to state the routes of any other airline or an airport?

Anyway, interesting to see all this UK expansion. Especially after the fact that MOL made it seem he'd have no UK expansion.

new routes from LIS: BLQ 3 weekly, GLA 2 weekly, LUX 4 weekly, TLS daily, WRO 2 weekly
new routes from FAO: ABZ 2 weekly, CWL 2 weekly, HAM 3 weekly, LTN 5 weekly, MRS 2 weekly, NCL 5 weekly, NQY 2 weekly, WAW 2 weekly
new routes from SKG: HAM 3 weekly, DTM 2 weekly, GOT 2 weekly, CPH 2 weekly
new routes from Pescara to CPH and KRK (each 2 weekly)

3rd aircraft for BFS and 2nd for SKG

Airports in Portugal and Spain might get additional based aircrafts next summer as FR said no additional aircrafts will be based in the UK in the future due to Brexit ... although afaik BFS is located in the UK ...
