Ryanair’s Dublin to Bremen
Ryanair’s Sales and Marketing Manager for the UK and Ireland Maria Macken and Dublin Airport’s Head of Market Intelligence Mark Evenden share a piece of the fantastic route launch cake with Ziv Mok and Rahel Sutterluetti, two Bremen-bound passengers on the inaugural flight from Dublin. The cake features Bremen’s most famous monument — the Town Musicians of Bremen — from the Brothers Grimm folktale.
- Ryanair, after a quiet period by its own standards over the high summer season, has begun to start new services once again, launching connections from London Stansted (STN) and Brussels Charleroi (CRL) to Comiso Airport (CIY) on the Italian island of Sicily. The former was launched on 18 September, with the latter beginning on the previous day. Flights from the UK capital are flown twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays), with the same frequency offered on links to Europe’s capital (Tuesdays and Saturdays) to Comiso, which became the airline’s 22nd destination in Italy. Also on 18 September, and completing the trio of new routes being launched, is a thrice-weekly Dublin (DUB) to Bremen (BRE) service (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays). The 1,003-kilometre route is technically a re-launch, as it was previously served by the carrier in 2007-08. All services are operated by the ULCC’s 737-800s and there is no direct competition on any of the three routes.
Passengers arriving in Comiso in Sicily from London Stansted were presented with a special bar of chocolate produced in the nearby city of Modica. President of SOACO Rosario Dibennardo (left) welcomes the first passenger (centre), along with Mariella Malandrino SOACO Board Member (right).
