This is good news for Ireland but they are back to attacking Aer Lingus, calling them the "high fares airline" and according to FR, Aer Lingus is no longer the Irish national carrier because it's smaller that FR.

Always nice to see more routes to eastern europe from DUB. I hope the DAA get off their asses and build the new terminal soon, the place is getting severly overcrowded.

Yawn - typical Ryanair PR drivel. People have a choice - and ryanair are now realising there are profits to be made from Ireland. 17 new routes - very significant growth.



The world is really getting smaller these days

It does not bother me if FR changed thier AOC to Latvia as the 738s would still have Irish registrations.

I have nothing against Ryanair. I have tried them out a few times and they were fine. I just want to know what makes a "national carrier" because I have always seen Aer Lingus as the "national carrier" and a low fares airline.
Does anyone even belive some of the things airlines say about eachother.

While the exact definition of a 'national carrier' is not very clear, I consider it to be either:
1. a nationalised (ie govt owned) airline, such as EI, or
2. An airline which was originally govt owned but has since been privatised, such as BA.

Thankyou EI321. I would not call Ryanair a national carrier just because of their size but they are one of the best low fares airlines ever, I would like see both Aer Lingus and Ryanair expand in Europe and for Aer Lingus around the world.

Altough one might argue that BGY is closer to Milan (than MXP) and it's also cheaper to get into town from BGY than from MXP...

It is cheaper I agree on that one, but if you are not driving it might be easier to get from MXP then BGY. From MXP there is Malpensa Express and from BGY first you have to get to the town on Bergamo and then take a train.
Bus... again cheaper (only 2 euros) but takes bit longer (much more during rush hour).

I am not sure how is it with perception of those two airports. Would a Milanese think about flying from BGY or would his first option be MXP because it is Milan's airport.

Let's not forget that LIN is different story... close and convenient.

I understand that these were hastely launched as EI was going to announce a bunch of these same routes (but not necessarily the same airports).

I think the 738 to HUY might be a bit big. This is where a smaller aircraft would have come in handy. Pity the old 732s are going because their 130 seat capacity would be more suited to a daily HUY-DUB service. Particulalrly since Ryanair already offers flights from nearby LBA and Doncaster.

Well, the actual goal of Ryanair is :
1. to create a low-cost image
2. to make people always include ryanair.com in their search to a flight trip.

When they constantly promote themselves as cheap airline on either way, they will arrange both goals. If a flight on EI is cheaper than on FR, people are more likely to choose EI. But this statements get the media attention - as this threas is a perfect example.

They seem to go head-to-head with SkyEurope too on many routes, now also with DUB to KRK and BTS included.

SkyEurope are there for the taking. At least Ryanair might actually market the DUB-BTS and DUB-KRK routes! Interesting to see three airlines on the DUB-KRK route but the demand is certainly there.

On 27th May 2004 there were no scheduled flights between Dublin and Poland. As things stand there will be 55 flights a week in each direction in Summer 2006. Sign of the times really with 3% of the Irish population now Polish.

Säve is actually closer to Gothenburg than Landvetter.

Nobody said it was FRA. However, Hahn is Frankfurt Hahn as stated by Fraport, IATA and Ryanair among others. As someone pointed out in the Irish Times today it often takes less time to get from Hahn to central Frankfurt than it does from parts of Dublin city to Dublin airport  Smile

No doubt about it. I have NEVER needed as long to get to any airport as I did to DUB (in a time-distance relation). It's absolutely pathetic!

EI have the fast pass machines and they won't leave you stuck somewhere over night due to a flight cancellation unlike FR - fine if travelling within UK or to UK as there are alternatives but to the continent !
