More good news for mallorca

Here it is

Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (13th Dec) announced it would open its 49th EU base at Palma Airport in March 2012 with 4 based aircraft operating 47 routes (17 new), delivering 2.8m passengers p.a., and sustaining up to 2,800 Balearic jobs.

In addition to Ryanair’s existing 30 Palma routes, the airline will open 17 new routes from Palma to Aarhus, Cork, Gothenburg, Haugesund, Kaunas, Krakow, Maastricht, Malaga, Magdeburg, Marseille, Oslo, Paris Beauvais, Poznan, Santander, Santiago, Stockholm, and Tampere, all of which go on sale on www.ryanair.com tomorrow (14th Dec) and bring to 47 the number of routes offered from Palma by Ryanair in summer 2012.

Ryanair celebrated its new Palma base (No 49) by launching a 1 million seat sale from €9.99 for travel across 1,000 European routes in late Jan and early Feb 2012. These low fares are available for booking until midnight Thursday (15th Dec).

In Palma, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:

“Ryanair is delighted to announce Palma as our 49th base with a total of 47 routes on sale on www.ryanair.com from tomorrow for summer 2012. Now Palma consumers/ visitors can beat the recession and escape both Air Europa and Air Berlin’s high fares by switching to Ryanair’s lowest fares and enjoy our no fuel surcharge guarantee to 47 exciting destinations. Ryanair’s traffic of 2.8m p.a. will sustain up to 2,800 jobs at Palma Airport and in the tourism industry on the island of Mallorca.”

can only be good for the island

Glad to hear some positive news for a change. Sadly for me still no flights to Aberdeen. Indeed Ryanair pulled the plug on the Aberdeen to Dublin flight blaming it on BAA for ending the discounted landing charges deal they had been given to attract Ryanair in the first place.

Yes this is good news for PMI-for now.

Sad to say nothing is forever with Ryanair.They close operational hubs at will often because they can no longer wring out of the airports/local authorities previous concessions that gave them an edge (and it has to be admitted increased passenger traffic at the overseas end).They have completely withdrawn from Marseille Provence this year which means no Manchester flights there in future.

They must be a difficult company to do business with (at the operational end).We all know they can sting you as a passenger if you don't totally comply with their extensive Terms and Conditions.
