I wouldn't be too sure Dave, the EU are going to try and shaft the UK because they don't want anyone else to leave, plus the UK leaving will make a large hole in their coffers. I think a lot of people who voted to leave thought on the Friday after the result those awful foreigners would have to pack their bags straightaway. That is not going to happen and the main sticking point as I see it is the Irish border problem. Ireland is not going to leave the EU so you have got have a border somewhere if not those from continental Europe can fly/ferry to Dublin and get on a train or bus to the north and oh dear we are in the UK. Don't hold your breath if the UK will be leaving the UK in 18 months time.

There are lots of clever people out there happy to sort it out for a sum equivalent to the GDP of a small nation. There'll be problems - last minute extensions and I certainly don't underestimate the cost to the industry. But I think you'll find FR will still be here when we leave, and if by chance I'm wrong - someone else will fill the void. It's the way the world works.

Sorry, Compton I posted before I read yours. All I know it was I damn sight easier to move around the continent before we joined the EU.

Probably will end up with stricter controls at NI airports and seaports for departing passengers

After all Ryanair insist on passports as official documentation

No they don't. I use my Citizen Card for ID for domestic flights. Really amuses me why passengers use the most expensive ID document to replace for ID when they don't need to. Great example of herd instinct. Passport yes for international flights.

They did insist on it for a while and then didn't really make a song and dance about it when the requirement was dropped. So I don't entirely blame people for not realising.

That said, they have accepted other ID for quite a while now.

Was it? There weren't border stations at every crossing then? You didn't need a passport to fly from Amsterdam to Rome then?

There are many genuine reasons to critique the EU but making movement harder certainly isn't one of them.

Indeed, I was trying to figure out what DC-3 meant. As one who lives on the European mainland I can tell you that movement became a lot easier as an EU passport holder!

Disagree Dave again, never NEVER had to show my passport across continrntal Europe except for entering or leaving GiB and UK - both non-Schenghen countries - with the UK being the least pleasurable by a long way (that is both by sea and air).Plus I don't think the Northern Irish parties would except stricter controls from one part of the UK to another.
I whole heartedly agree about Ryanair though.

A bit of thread drift here in the last few posts. As I have already stated Ryanair say one thing and then often do another so it is incorrect to say Brexit has killed off any future new routes out of Belfast.

Totally agree with you, they are masters of hyperbole

Without wanting the thread to drift any further, the big problem is that nobody knows what is going to happen - might be a damp squid and nothing changes for airlines but there is at least the potential for it all to go pear shaped - airlines will need to plan for that and the only winners will be the lawyers...

Ryanair UK Domestic routes, limited though they are, are likely to be a casualty of Brexit. as Ryanair may not wish to use a UK AOC.

racedo I don't think you're right, but you may be - as SWBKCB says nobody knows. But, if you are right, any abandoned viable routes will soon be serviced by A N Other. And really that's all I mean when I suggest 'life goes on'. I can't say any more because I agree I'm contributing to some unwelcome thread drift.

There isn't ANY UK Airline out there that has the scope, aircraft or ability to pick up much in the event Ryanair had to abandon many Uk routes.

If anything was to happen to 'abandon UK routes' it would most likely to be a few days or a week at the most until Ryanair get back onto their feet and sort out an agreement. If Ryanair did abandon routes, that means tourism in the markets they serve will be heavily hit - no country will want that... Probably a reduced schedule for a few days to a week if anything and well planned in advanced.

Ryanair Summer 2018

Does anyone know when Ryanair will begin to revealing their Summer 18 schedule - none have been done so far AFAIK.

It was Mid July when Ryanair started press releases for their Summer 17 schedules with NCL being their first release I believe.

Based on the regional newspaper "Mallorca Zeitung" FR is now No.1 airline at PMI surpassing AB/HG in the 1st half of 2017.
Ryanair ist neuer König von Mallorca - Mallorca Zeitung

EW, EZY, VY and UX on the following positions.

If this trend continues this newspaper need to establish an English website...

They are certainly more demanding than others on ID front.

Between UK and Ireland you can travel on a photographic Driving License. Well you can with Aer Lingus. As a colleague found out on his return journey you cannot with Ryan Air.

On 17 august last year, Ryanair charged on the website all Italian routes.

Could someone explain how to make a booking on the Ryanair website without logging-in.
I don't know my password and the password recovery facility simply does not work.
