Ryanair launched its latest route from Bremen on 2 July, a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service to the Croatian city of Zadar. Among those present at the launch, along with the inaugural flight crew, were: Sebastian Maurans, Head of Sales, Bremen Airport (fourth right); Elmar Kleinert, CEO, Bremen Airport (centre); and Johannes Römer, Sales and Marketing Executive DACH, Ryanair (fifth right). The carrier faces no direct competition on the 1,102-kilometre sector.
- Ryanair this week chose to expand its operations from bases beginning with B, adding a new route to each of its Bremen (BRE) and Bratislava (BTS) operations. The German city welcomed a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service to Zadar (ZAD) on 2 July, while the Slovakian capital city was the airport of choice for the carrier’s second-ever route to Turkey, launching a weekly (Saturdays) rotation to Dalaman (DLM). Neither of the 1,102- and 1,585-kilometre sectors will face direct competition from a scheduled service, based on OAG data, however it should be noted that Travel Service Slovakia does offer a weekly charter service between Bratislava and Dalaman when referencing data extracted from Flightradar24.com. The route launch to Turkey comes off the back of the ULCC inaugurating services to Dalaman from Dublin last week.
