Ryanair adds more routes as winter season gets into full swing

Seville Airport celebrated Ryanair’s launch of services to Warsaw Modlin, with the first flight departing on 31 October. Seen cutting the ceremonial launch cake are: Antonio Conde, VP, Prodetur; Alejandra Ruiz, Sales and Marketing Spain, Ryanair; Jesús Caballero, Director Seville Airport; and Antonio Jiménez, Manager of the Seville Tourism Consortium.

Vilnius Airport welcomed two new Ryanair links from Germany on consecutive days. Flights from Cologne Bonn began on 31 October, followed by the launch of services from Nuremberg on 1 November. Cutting the ribbon for the inaugural Cologne Bonn service was Olaf Martens, Vilnius Airport Director, while Aurimas Stikliunas, Head of Aviation Services at Lithuanian Airports, performed the same duty to mark the launch of the Nuremberg route. The first passengers flying on the new German city pairs were presented with tasty pretzels.

Ryanair launched two new routes from Krakow to Sweden on 31 October. Flights to Gothenburg and Malmö, from the second largest city in Poland, will both operate three times per week. There is no direct competition on the 974-kilometre Krakow-Gothenburg sector or on the shorter 774-kilometre Krakow-Malmö airport pair.

  • Ryanair began services on 31 new routes during the week commencing 31 October, to add to more than 80 that were launched in the previous week. Nearly one-third of the latest batch of airport pairs originate from one of the carrier’s Polish bases, with Krakow (KRK) and Poznan (POZ) seeing five and four new route launches respectively. Most of the new services are operated with two or three weekly frequencies. The longest sector of the 31 new routes is the 2,903-kilometre route from Poznan to Eliat Ovda (VDA), which commences on 3 November with a single flight before returning twice-weekly from 17 November. The shortest sector is the 394-kilometre link between Gdansk (GDN) and Wroclaw (WRO). Overall, the average sector length is 1,405 kilometres of those routes launching this week. Only nine of Ryanair’s latest network additions will face direct competition.
