Germany............check latest news section at ryanair.com for further details, and good luck!

I once availed myself of a similar offer in England, and flew to Salzburg for free, plus tax.

What a pity that I have already been to all interesting destination that Ryanair offers from HHN. It's 280km from where I live to HHN. So as long as they don't add new destinations, I won't fly Ryanair again, even if the tickets are for free, because I spend much too much money when I drive to HHN.

But for those who live closer to HHN, there are some really interesting offers for August. Try flights from Hahn to Bournemouth, Pisa, Perpignan (and on some dates even Shannon), it depends on the day but there are flights for 2€ one-way, tax not included.

Yes, it's really a pitty that we live far too far away from Hahn. I'd like to fly for 20 € roundtrip on Ryanair. Milan seems to be frequently cheap.

And they do not offer any 2€ ticket on their Friedrichshafen route. The cheapest tickets FDH-STN are 24.99€ one-way, plus taxes and booking fee.

Yes and another problem on the FDH run is that there's only one daily flight which means that you have to stay overnight in London which is not cheap.
No chance to do a same day return trip. Maybe they start FKB service one day, that would be better.

STN-FKB was one of the routes which FR wanted to start in April, but they decided to fly to FDH instead. However, Ryanair has got ~100 738s on order, Germany is the fastest-growing market, so I'm sure we will see Ryanair somewhere in the region very soon.

Well, I'm gonna try my best to be part of the 6000 lucky people. I wonder if the dates will be ok.

Donder, why not visit FRA for a few hours? (The airport, or the city). I don't know what HHN has of interest, perhaps a few Atlas/Russian cargo a/c.

Good luck, I'll let you know what happens.

Donder,

You should just go for the hell of it......granted, you might not get that much time in FRA (have you checked the bus time/lengths?), but look at it as just something to do to pass time--the best thing is that you get to fly!!

I've just come back from Sweden (see trip report)--and really enjoyed it; I've also flown to Malmo (for Copenhagen), so I guess Torp is next; I'd also like to re-visit Finland--god, I just love their language.....

What I usually do is book at least 3-4 months in advance, making sure I fly Tues-Thurs/Fri; I usually book 2 flights at a time; I've never paid more than 40 quid on any one flight; the guy at a cafe I go to every day just booked his flight to Rome with Ryanair for 80 quid--I thought that was a bit on the pricey side, but he seemed convinced he had got a bargain!  Big thumbs up

Anyway, a few hours in FRA (or the city) will be great!! Have you visited Germany before? I haven't, I still wanna go to Munich and Berlin.

Regards

Donder, your last statement was a bit bold!! I wouldn't exactly say that! You can't base your judgements on what a few aviation-loving people on this forum say--they aren't representative of the gen public!!

Wodo, you are taking up too many seats, that's unfair, give others who are sleeping a chance  Big grin

Cheers

It was a tongue-in-cheek reference to Lufti Picard!Aeroflot have some DC10s based at HHN now that would be worth a pic or two.I probabrly will visit the village!What is the legal drinking age in Germany?Hopefully not 21

Hi

You'll have to ask, but it should be 18; judging by your profile, you might just get away with it  Big thumbs up

Well, enjoy HHN then, I'm sure there'll be something to do.

Right, I'm off to bed. There are some great deals for FR flights Tues-Thurs in November, so I'll console myself with booking a flight then tomorrow.

But for now, it's good night from me.
