Kenny Jacobs, marketing director, led a Ryanair update in London last week with the main emphasis on an expansion at Stansted where the airline expects to move 20.4m of the airport’s 24m plus passengers during 2017.
The airline will introduce Aalborg (Denmark), Oradea (Romania) and Pardubice (Czech Republic).
Cagliari (Italy), Copenhagen (Denmark), Naples (Italy), Nice (France), Oslo Torp (Norway) and Ponta Delgada (Azores) become all year around services. No new aircraft will be added to the Stansted fleet, all the increases taken care of by the inbound continental stations.
Mr Jacobs confirmed that plans were well under way for the airline to officially connect with Norwegian at Gatwick and Aer Lingus with Dublin. Passengers will be able to through check-in luggage, the onus being on the first carrier but with the initial connecting time three hours and Ryanair’s excellent on-time performance this is seen as no problem. At Gatwick both carriers are in the South Terminal. He said that Ryanair was moving into major airports, citing Frankfurt as an example, with the exception of Heathrow.
Ryanair is very much now into the business market centred on its three London airports with the frequency now Berlin (4 daily), Dublin (18 daily), Edinburgh (4 daily) and Madrid (4 daily).
