Ryanair opens another UK base

RYANAIR is to open another UK operation next March at Leeds Bradford Airport which is bound to cause a draught with the airport’s established main operator Jet2.  The airline already serves Alicante, Girona and Dublin from the airport which is half way between the two Yorkshire cities.  Two 180-seat Boeing 737-800s will cover 14 new routes.  New are Carcassonne, Faro, Ibiza, Knock, Krakow, Limoges, Malaga, Malta, Montpellier, Murcia, Nantes, Palma, Pisa and Venice (Treviso).  Ryanair says that with the fresh destinations its traffic at the airport should top one million passengers per year, with 63 weekly return flights. www.ryanair.com
