Ryanair opens its 86th European base

Ryanair celebrated the opening of its new Dusseldorf base on 1 June (its 11th base in Germany and 86th base in Europe) and the launch of three new routes to Alicante, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca, which will all operate daily as part of its S18 schedule. Ulrich Topp, Director Aviation Marketing, Düsseldorf Airport; Lisa Maria Rumpf, Ryanair, Sales and Marketing Executive DACH; and Lutz Honerla, VP Marketing & Strategy, Düsseldorf Airport all welcomed the new routes.

On 1 June, the Irish ULCC began domestic services from Zaragoza to Palma de Mallorca. The twice-weekly sector becomes the sixth route offered by the carrier from Zaragoza, joining existing flights to London Stansted, Milan Bergamo, Brussels Charleroi, Lanzarote and Paris Beauvais.

  • Ryanair has started 16 new sectors in the last seven days, with the ULCC boosting its operations primarily from Manchester (MAN) and Palma de Mallorca (PMI), as well as opening a new base in Düsseldorf (DUS). The longest sector is the 2,623-kilometre route from Manchester to Agadir (AGA), whereas the shortest city pair is the link from Zaragoza (ZAZ) to Palma de Mallorca, at just 363 kilometres. The average sector length of all 16 services is 1,314 kilometres, while the average frequency is 3.8 flights per week. Only five of the 16 airport pairs will see no incumbent airlines, with two routes from Palma de Mallorca – Stuttgart (STR) and Düsseldorf – seeing Ryanair face six competing carriers. See how Zaragoza Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
