In the German news:

Ryanair is being investigated in Germany for understating the weight of their plans by around 8t, saving a decent sum of fees this way, over many years. Estimations are that Ryanair may be liable for up to 50m Euros (EU airspace, not only for Germany). Ryanair is reported to have declined comment so far.

Ryanair operates a variable MTOW program like many airlines do. The link below is only applicable to UK CAA operations but the IAA has something similar all under EU-OPS. Ryanair operate on 66,9-69,9 or 74,9T MTOW. Has to be changed by an engineer and then signed and stamped in the techlog

A number of extra flights to/from Modlin have been scheduled over the next few days to accommodate those who have been effected by the weather over the past few days as there was not enough free space on existing flights to get everyone on a flight before Christmas.

Amongst others, it means in the morning from Dub there will be two flights to Modlin leaving within 10 minutes of each other.

THe extra DUB ones were planned weeks before any issues with weather, just usual extra Christmas flights by FR just happens they are so close together with the way the shcedule worked out.

Not a very consistent logic behind Ryanair's public statements, but never mind. Just a few days ago PR threats to abandon Finland almost entirely, yet today two new routes announced. GRO-TMP and GRO-LPP, both twice weekly. Good choice, if you ask me. Sins forgiven for now.

I know there was extra dub flights later in the week, but I understood that some flights today and tomorrow were only added in the last few days.

Chania base

Ryanair Announces New Chania (Greece) Base (No 55)

11 NEW ROUTES (26 IN TOTAL) & 500,000 PAX P.A. AT RYANAIR’S 1st GREEK BASE
Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline, today (19 Dec) announced it would open its 1st Greek base (55th base in total) at Chania in April 2013 with one based aircraft and unveiled 11 new routes (26 in total), to/from Billund, Bremen, Bristol, Eindhoven, Katowice, Marseille, Memmingen, Thessaloniki, Venice, Vilnius and Warsaw, as Ryanair invests over $70m at Chania Airport.

Ryanair will grow at Chania as follows:

  • 1 based aircraft
  • 11 new routes (26 in total):
  • Billund, Bremen, Bristol, Eindhoven, Katowice, Marseille, Memmingen, Thessaloniki, Venice, Vilnius & Warsaw
  • 106 weekly flights (up 89%)
  • 500,000 pax p.a (up 100%)
  • 500* “on site” jobs

Ryanair celebrated its new Chania base by launching a 100,000 seat sale with fares starting from £8 for travel across its European network in January which are available for booking until midnight (24:00hrs) Thur (20 Dec). Ryanair’s 11 new Chania routes will begin in April and will go on sale on www.ryanair.com tomorrow.

In Chania today, Ryanair’s Kate Sherry said:

“Ryanair is delighted to announce Chania as our 55th base (and our first in Greece) and to unveil 11 new routes (26 in total) to/ Billund, Bremen, Bristol, Eindhoven, Katowice, Marseille, Memmingen, Thessaloniki, Venice, Vilnius and Warsaw beginning in April, as part of our summer 2013 schedule, which go on sale on www.ryanair.com tomorrow.

Visitors to Greece can now beat the recession and escape high fares and fuel surcharging by switching to Ryanair’s lowest fares and our no fuel surcharge guarantee between Chania and 25 European destinations, including Edinburgh, London and Milan, amongst others. Ryanair’s 500,000 passengers p.a. will sustain up to 500 “on site” jobs in Chania, in a welcome boost to the Cretian economy, as we grow our passenger traffic by 100% at Chania.

To celebrate our new Chania base, we are launching a 100,000 seat sale with fares starting from £8 for travel across Europe in January, which are available for booking until midnight Thursday (20 Dec). Since seats at these crazy low prices will be snapped up quickly, we urge passengers to book them immediately on www.ryanair.com.”

That's standard Ryanair math. 1000 pax = 1 job. Nothing to do with jobs with the company or even at the airport. Barmen, shoeshine boys, extra police to keep the chavs in order - they all count.

Sounds fairly typical for FR @ BHX: are we ever going to see any meaningful expansion of routes from their BHX base or is the airport only seen as a suitable place to park aircraft in the winter?

Remember that they do fly to Barcelona (El Prat) 4 times a week now, to be honest I'm surprised Girona is still being offered from Birmingham. Also in the winter it got new routes to Milan Krakow (which will continue into the summer) and Palma also now goes through the winter months, the only UK airport except Stansted which has Ryanair flights to Palma in the winter so there has been some changes there recently and maybe one or two more by the time we get to the summer.

Looks like base number 56 is on the way. It appears that there is to be a base in Marrakech, Morocco as timetables are supporting Marrakech based aircraft with early departures and late arrivals.

Routes that currently have flights supporting Marrakech based aircraft are:

Brussels-Charleroi
Eindhoven
London-Stansted
Milan-Bergamo
Paris-Beauvais

Does anybody know of any new routes as I dare say there will be some very soon?
