Ryanair - 3
 
Was just wondering if any of you in the know (MOL if you're listening) have heard if Ryanair (or anyone else) plan to open a DUB-AHO route in the future? AHO-STN is a very popular route, and I'm sure with so many Sardi living in Ireland it would be a viable option? I'd certainly use it anyway! :D

Grazie :ok:

Ryanair - 3
 
Ryanair's latest announcement of more new routes from Dublin has shuffled things up a bit. Most noticably the start date for Madrid is being brought forward. Currently Ryanair have 15 aircraft based in Dublin, and they are going to increase this to 19 aircraft to facilitate the new routes. Looking at the schedules for the new routes we have:

New Aircraft December 10
1234567 Madrid 0705-1245
1-3-5-7 Tenerife 0600-1505
-2-4-6- Fuerteventura 0600-1505
The timings don't make sense. Either the timetables of existing routes have been moved around, or else something like Madrid being moved to a later time of 1555-2135 will happen before the routes take off


New Aircraft December 19
1-3-5-7 Tampere 0730-1435, Oslo 1525-2015
-2-4-6- Friedrichshafen 0610-0925, Olso 1200-1650, Grenoble 1715-2210
Turin also starts December 20th, --3--6- 0650-1200, but I believe its introduction will come at the expense of existing routes. Regarding the scheduling of this aircraft, there certainly seems to be gaps on 1-3-5-7 and room for retimings on -2-4-6-


New Aircraft January 23
1-----7 Vitoria 0615-1105, Billund 1130-1600
-2---6- Seville 0730-1355, Almeria 1445-2115
--3-5-- Vitoria 0615-1105, Billund 1130-1600, Rzeszow 1650-2330
---4--- Seville 0730-1355
A good few gaps in the schedule here


New aircraft February 8
1---5-- Bologna 1335-1940 Alghero 1555-2215
-2-4-6- Malta 0705-1520, Pula 1335-1940
--3---7 Bologna 1335-1940 Trapani 1555-2315
Right now the timings don't make sense... They'll probably be changed, but at first glance it seems that there couldn't be any significant gaps with the frequencies/sectors involved.

So we can expect further new route announcements for Dublin I say. Or maybe the gaps will be used to increase frequencies on existing routes and a general reshuffling of various schedules. And don't forget Ryanair have also promised 7 more weekly flights for Berlin, 7 more for Rome, 3 more for Malaga and 4 more for Faro, as well as a new Stockholm route!
I'd expect a 20th aircraft will be necessary, with a schedule something like:
1234--- Malaga, Stockholm, Berlin
----567 Faro, Stockholm, Berlin
with maybe a new Rome based aircraft going to do the extra Rome flights.

Interesting times ahead: Dublin airport is gonna be jammers!! :ok:

Ryanair needs more space in Tampere
 
According to Finnish press (Tamperelainen), Ryanair is pushing for the development of Tampere Pirkkala Airport. Airpro, the subsidiary of Finnavia (the authority maintaining Finlandís network of airports and the air navigation system), has already prepared plans for the envisaged expansion of Pirkkala's Terminal Two, being used by FR only, but didn't actually put them into action. Wilhelm Hamilton, Ryanair's head of Nordic operations wants to speed up this process. - "In a few years we want to operate from here to some 20-25 destinations - he says. - "We do not need any sophisticated new buildings, but we need more space, particularly boarding gates there.

The local authorities say they have been waiting for the Ryanair's initiative before making some important decisions - "But we are very happy to hear from Ryanair as we too think there are more good airports in Finland, not Helsinki only. We want to act energetically". Ryanair and Finnish partners (Airpro, Finnavia and the authorities of Tampere and local district) are going to meet shortly to make the faster progress.

At present Ryanair flies to Tampere only. It is not interested in Helsinki-Vantaa. - "I just wonder how they can make a very costly renovation (in HEL) while the aviation business is in trouble. The marble floors and hardwood ornaments could become a memorial grave of 'old time' air travel - says Hamilton.

This is a link to one of many articles (in Spanish, use Babelfish) that says that Ryanair will announce GRO to TFN this week.

Thinking back to articles I read some weeks ago, OPO and SDR are also on the cards. Anyway, all will be revealed Thursday according to this Italian (use Babelfish) article about GRO to PSR:
http://www.primadanoi.it/modules/bdn...p?storyid=5940


And now that the Spanish labour market is fully open to the new EU member states' citizens I would expect at least one new Polish destination (WRO and/or KRK), probably RIX aswell, and maybe KUN...

I have consulted a friend of mine from Finland (he works in the aviation business). In his opinion Finavia you have mentioned is only theoretically an independent institution. In fact there are very strong links between them and Finnair. They didn't dare to oppose a costly project (an extension to the international terminal at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport) because Finnair needs it and that is clear. It will be Finavia’s largest ever investment and will cost at least € 143 million but there aren't any problems with financing, it must be done.

With Tampere, despite the fact that the costs involved there would be (probably) 40 times lower, the financing will be much more problematic. As my friend formulates it: Tampere's terminal (No 2) is the only one in whole Finland that is NOT used by Finnair & Co and that will make things very difficult. Finavia will be very friendly and co-operative but offering no money. Maybe he is wrong, let's hope, but his point of view has some grounds I'd believe.
As far as I understand the local authorities truely want to help as they appreciate the significance of FR for the local businesses. Don't be too optimistic though.

By the way. Finland has one of the lowest penetration of low-cost carriers in the entire EU. To illustrate it: being only 40% less populated than neighbouring Sweden, it has only one true lcc (and some middle-cost ones) with just a few connections. That also proves something.

This is a glitch in the booking engine. It happened at the start of this year I think when Milano Bergamo was closed for a few days and all Ryanair flights were operating in and out of Verona Brescia.

Otto Nove Due 29th Sep 2006 12:41

Well it was only a matter of time - they're starting a twice weekly (Fridays and Mondays) service from Feb 2007!

Charlie Roy 29th Sep 2006 13:16

It's little stories like that that just help make my day. A new Ryanair route that makes travelling home for someone a hundred times easier and cheaper :ok:

Oooh, TAP and Portugalia will be happy. I think the OPO-LIS route is their cash cow. Multiple departures in the day and never for anything less than about £165 return. And these flights are busy. I've opted for the more or less three hour drive each way in a day a few times (And then half way back to Porto on a rainy night wished I'd parted with £165 :ouch: ).

On the subject of OPO what's the chances of a route from EMA in the next round of announcements?
