Ryanair opens Wroclaw base as part of 70-route expansion

Ryanair’s new Wroclaw base was launched with a cake and a flash mob dance in the Polish airport’s brand new terminal.

Cutting the cake to celebrate Ryanair’s new routes to Knock in western Ireland were Liam Scollan, Chairman Ireland West Airport Knock; Michael Ring T.D., Minister of State for Tourism and Sport; Collette McDonnell, station manager Ryanair; and Joe Gilmore, Managing Director Ireland West Airport Knock. Ring then welcomed the first German passengers who touched down on the first flight from Frankfurt Hahn.

Riga celebrated the new route from Ryanair’s Baden-Baden base with a cake symbolising the German city’s famous thermal hot springs. Agnese Sudmale, representative of Riga International Airport, cut the cake together with the airport’s board member Aldis Mūrnieks.

Posing with the cake baked to celebrate Bydgoszcz’ new Ryanair route to Girona were Katarzyna Cieszyńska, winner of the cake design competition who won a flight voucher to Girona; Joanna Sowińska, Bydgoszcz Airport’s PR Manager; and Michał Kapka, Marketing and Network Development Manager at the Polish airport.

Characters from the Moomins celebrated with Ryanair’s Sales & Marketing Executive Nordics & Baltics Elina Hakkarainen, Vice Mayor of Turku Jarkko Virtanen, and Turku Touring’s Anne-Marget Niemi as Ryanair started operations at its third Finnish airport. Virtanen and Hakkarainen were joined by Turku Airport’s Manager Juha Aaltonen in cutting the ribbon for the first Ryanair flight.

The good luck fairy from the local casino wished Ryanair’s new base at Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden the best of luck as the ribbon for the first flight was cut by the airport CEO Manfred Jung and Henrike Schmidt, Ryanair’s Sales & Marketing Manager Germany.
