Routes start in November.

At the same time, many other routes will be suspended from November: CIA, LCJ and BOH will be suspended and not come back in the near term. BIQ, NTE, CCF, BGY, TSF and MJV will continue as summer-only service (APR-OCT). So it seems that the number of aircraft based will stay the same.

It's no real surprise. Lately many rumours arrived about the SNN base being unprofitable for Ryanair. Apparantly, by shaking up the destinations offered, they switch focus a bit from Irish holiday routes (giving up all Italian routes and all French routes except BVA) to UK-Ireland traffic and migration traffic from the Baltics.

I'm interested where they will use the CIA slots for, that they get when giving up SNN-CIA.

Not just lately: the underperformance of SNN has been appearing in major FR statements, e.g its end-of-year reports, for some time.

Good to see BHX getting another FR flight (its second).

The introduction of SNN-RIX means that FR will now operate 12 routes to/from RIX. In the last week FR has announced three new routes to/from RIX: EMA, BRS and SNN.

And FR will now operate 4 routes to/from FUE and 3 to/from TFN.

In the last two weeks they have announced BRS, SNN, EMA and BGY  Smile (EMA and BGY were announced May 17)

I expect a 3 or 4-weekly NRN-RIX to be launched as well, once RIX becomes as base, or when NRN gets expanded. There are many people with a Latvian background living in Germany and it's a fairly popular tourist destination from Germany. It's also interesting for the Dutch market, as since May 1st, all EU member state inhabitants can work here.

Well, I was close enough.  

Yes, NRN-RIX seems obvious.

It's great to see Lithuania's second-largest city (pop 361,000), Kaunas, getting more flights; indeed, FR will now operate 6 routes to/from KUN.

Is it coincidence that FR have been lured to at long last open a new route out of LBA at the same time the airport has just been sold from council ownership?  Wink SNN will be a welcome addition after 12 or so years of just having the DUB service.

I wonder what RE will make of this..........all the new UK services from FR at SNN will be going up against them at GWY.

Seems like a big attack on Aer Arann at Galway. The FR press release goes on about improved road links between Galway and SNN, while RE serve LBA, BHX and LTN from Galway - new rioutes announced today by FR from SNN. Also MAN and EDI are getting extra frequencies from SNN - these are also served by RE from Galway

DUB-SNN, twice daily is a good route though since EI's future on it is unclear

But what happens in the summer - will more flights be chopped to accomdate these routes? Or will there be an extra based aircraft? If so, I could see PMI and ALC being added

Think SNN-CIA was 2/3 times a week

Twice weekly tue thu, with a CIA based aircraft. They'll find goot use of it.

I'm also interested how they'll operate the summer routes. Ryanair does not really have a ski-base (like U2 has GVA) where they base more aircraft in summer than in winter. (U2 used a DTM 319 in GVA during the ski-season last year, for example). Time will tell. Also, it's interesting that they already announce it for the summer of 2008.

Am quite interested in the twice-daily (once-daily on Saturday) service SNN-DUB-SNN. The flights have a 40--/45-minute block. As the crow flies, it's a 105 NM journey (adding manoeuvering, probably 130-150 NM). From central DUB to central SNN, it's about 135 miles and would take around 3 1/4 hours to drive. DUB-SNN has been operated by other airlines in the past, and EI currently fly via there as a stop from DUB to the USA and vice-versa using 330s. But will there really be sufficient demand for SNN-DUB-SNN? Hmm.

Call me synical but could it either be:

To persuade the Irish government to accept the EI takeover (otherwise they'd probably have to stick a PSO on the route)
Or to stop RE entering the route again if EI drop it

Good to see another Ryanair route from BHX, but a few years back didnt they have a grudge against BHX because of landing fees and dropped the Gerona and Murcia routes, hense why they are at EMA.

I'm not sure if that's an indication for anything. Tried a couple of MAD routes for November (EMA, EIN, BOH, CIA) and none of them are bookable for the winter. Same thing for all routes from NRN, they are just not open for bookings yet.
