FR: Not Permitted To Advertise = Way Around It?

If, say, FR was not permitted to advertise Weeze/NRN as 'Dusseldorf,' could it not simply misspell Dusseldorf? That would mean it is not the same as the city. Indeed, FR has 'Duesseldorf' on its booking page, as a part of 'Duesseldorf-Weeze.' Seems like a way around this, but I am not totally sure.

False advertising is false advertising, Weeze/NRN as far as I know, is another of those airports miles away from the city advertised.

I doubt thatwould work - simply exchanging the "ü" for an "ue"? Since it is more than obvious which town they're talking about, and the "ue" is, in the German language, an accepted and permitted way of not using the Umlaut, it would still be the same thing.

As for spelling it with a "u"... not a wise idea: "Dussel", in German, is another word for "Idiot" - so writing "Dusseldorf"... well... I guess you get the picture...  Big grin

Duesseldorf is how you spell it if you don't use the " above the U in Dusseldorf the u with a " becomes ue if you see what I mean

Ah, I see. Well, there is bound to be a way around it. If I specialised in this area of law, or at least had a good knowledge thereof, and not another, I would know for certain. Still, it's interesting.

They should call it Weeze or Neiderhein or whatever, but not Dusseldorf/Duesseldorf/or any other spelling

Deviating slightly but when I went to Rome Ciampino the other day I was surprised to know that CIA is located only 16km from the city centre compared to 36km to Rome Fiumicino Airport, which is the city's main airport.

Kirke, FR advertise Ciampino as 'Rome Ciampino' and 'Milan Orio al Serio Airport' for Milan.

Isn't it a bit early to be hitting the bottle? Big grin

Yes but FCO has the dedicated train link into the city centre. I believe its bus or cab from CIA, But yes it is one instance where FR's airport is closer rather than further from the city it serves.

Cornish, yeah there are a few coaches running between the city and airport. We used Terravision which cost £9:50 for the return journey (it takes around 30 mins).

In that case the train from FCO is slightly quicker if I remember rightly and not too expensive. So technically CIA is closer in kms but FCO is closer in time.

Just looked up the FR route map and indeed on that they label every airport by the "big city close by", i.e. Brussels instead of Charleroi, Leipzig instead of Altenburg, Milan instead of Bergamo, and so on... EXCEPT for Gerona, which has Gerona as the "headline" and Barcelona written in small underneath. Wonder why. Is it because the other airport in Catalunya that FR uses (=Reus) would be Barcelona, too?

Well they refer to Stockhom Skavska and Stockholm Vasteras too, so it shouldn't be an issue - unless the Spanish had an objection for some reason.

In the case of Girona (Barcelona) I think after a while people realise the destination has advantages in its own right and as it gets better known its easier to advertise as a seperate destination. Personally, I don't see why this is a big issue. No one is claiming Stansted shouldn't be allowed to be called London Stansted, and that is as far away as many of the other airports mentioned. (Although I do remember problems when Planestation started calling Manston London Manston before Kent Intl.!)

Couldn't they just insert the word "near" in the advertising?

"Near" being a relative term of course in some cases!
