Ryanair already serves 15 different Italian cities, as below, from London (Stansted):

Alghero
Ancona
Bari
Bologna (Forli)
Brindisi
Genoa
Milan (Bergamo)
Palermo
Pescara
Pisa
Rome (Ciampino)
Trieste
Turin
Venice (Treviso)
Verona (Brescia)

But are there any additional Italian cities which might be added to its impressive and ever-growing network?

Whoever said FR isn’t convenient when visiting Italy is two cans short of a six-pack.

Maybe Napels maybe an option!?

I doubt it unless there's an alternative airport near-by. Besides, U2 already flies STN-NAP and low-cost carriers very rarely compete head-to-head on routes.

Rimini came and went for Ryanair.

Perhaps Perugia?

Did FR serve Lamezia in the past? If not maybe a link there or to Crotone in the far south may be considered. To be honest, with the exception of the Italian hub airports (which FR will never serve), there doesn't seem to be too many more places in Italy for them to fly to!

How odd - I thought precisely the same about two hours' ago!

Why did FR cease its Rimini service? Low yields, insufficent demand?

Rimini was ceased because the local mafia put the squeeze on Ryan Air to make payoffs in order to keep using the airport. Usually, it is the other way around, with the airport making concessions to get an airline in there to help create jobs. In this case, it is exact opposite. Ryan Air pulled out and rightfully so.

The only areas that they might want to get covered a little better are the Naples area (even if not into NAP) and maybe an airport in Eastern Sicily like Catania. That's about it.

Why not Bolzano? I'm sure there'd be demand for FR in that region.

If you want to fly to Naples (North) with FR, just hop on a plane to Rome

Yes, Lamezia was served by FR at one point. The only UK LCC that has ever served Perugia is the now-defunct Debonair.

Bozen definitely cannot accomodate a Boeing 737. It rings a bell that the same is true for Perugia. In general, there seem to be much less suitable airports in Italy than in, say, France or Germany.

Maybe Reggio would be an option (not sure about the runway)

Yeah, with the 146. Didn't Debonair's CEO or founder come from there?

"I flew the London Stansteed to Rome (Ciampino) route..."

Ahhh cool. I'm flying that route on the 10th August. How long did it take? I see the first flight has a block time of 2.5 hours.

Pe@rson:
Ryanair is only convenient for flying to Italy if you are able to get to Stansted easily. From South Wales there is a long drive and not all of the flights depart at reasonable times.

Granted, you could book a hotel or get up in the middle of the night, but it is easier to fly from BHX. I have done this with both KLM (via AMS) and Lufthansa/Air Dolomiti (via MUC), to reach Bologna. Two rotations for the price of one! It would be handy if they flew to Rimini though.

Incidentally, does anyone know why MyTravel Lite decided not to fly to Rimini last year, from BHX? The routes were announced and tickets paid for and despatched - and then they pulled out. Answers on a postcard.....

thanks,
Aviadvigatel.
