Ryanair and Barcelona

BARCELONA EL PRAT AIRPORT is to gain some 20 Ryanair routes in the balance of 2010 following yet another about face by the airline.  The Dublin-based carrier was vociferous with its attacks on the airport when it opened a base at Girona, some 60 miles to the north west, in 2003, where it is now the major carrier.  In the meantime El Prat has been redeveloped with a new terminal.  Whether the authorities relent on their requirements for air bridges will be seen when the airline introduces its services in September, a quick turnaround a major factor in the Ryanair success story.  On Tuesday (1 June) the carrier will announce its April 2009-March 2010 figures which will not include the estimated 1.2m drop in numbers due to April’s ash problems.  SEE ALSO HAPPY TALK.
