Faro Airport’s Helder Lemos, Head of Marketing; and Jocelyn McCall Ferreira, Marketing Aviation, Key Account Airlines, cut the cake celebrating Ryanair’s new route to Leipzig and the third anniversary of the airline’s base at the southern Portuguese airport.

Camilla Littorin, Business Manager Destination Jönköping; and Sten Norrinder, Jönköping Airport’s MD, cheered to the success of Ryanair’s new service to Girona, 16 years after the carrier first touched down at the Swedish airport.

Traditional German Lebkuchen (or gingerbread cake) was served in Nuremberg to mark Ryanair’s launch of services to London Stansted. Presenting the bake were Peter Schuberth, AirPart’s Sales and Quality Manager; Henrike Schmidt, Ryanair’s Country Manager Germany; Ryanair Cabin Crew on the inaugural flight; and Andreas Humer-Hager, Nuremberg Airport’s Head of Aviation Marketing.

Another route launched by Ryanair from Porto last week – the twice-weekly service to Strasbourg – was also celebrated with a cake.

  • It may have recently reported a 1% drop in its passenger numbers for March, but that has not stopped Ryanair from leading the way, once again, as the airline that starts (and stops) more routes than any other. For the period under analysis this week (25 March to 1 April), we have identified a total of 54 genuinely new Ryanair routes (as opposed to including seasonal re-starts), with many more to follow next week. These new routes involve a total of 62 different airports across Europe and North Africa. Worth noting is that of the 54 new routes, just six are currently served by other airlines, and that the average weekly frequency of the new services is just 2.54. Zadar (ZAD) in Croatia officially becomes the airline’s latest base, and first in Croatia, with one based aircraft and three new routes starting this week.
