On a local newspaper of the Forli'-Cesena region in Italy I found an article that's talking about Ryanair.
FR is expected to open a new base in FRL, Forli' Luigi Ridolfi Airport, by 2009, the 4th after BGY PSA and CIA .
It is expected to bring 1.800.000 passengers from the opening of the base. (considering FRL now handles 690.000 passenger/year.
From november 2008 there will be 14 daily flights, with some domestic destinations.
The newspaper said FR already hired 1 Captain and 3 First Officers in the area.
The participation of BLQ airport in FRL will become smaller and there will be an agreement with RMI.
I also heard they're looking for a new building near to the airport, what could that be?
What new routes do you expect? FRL is marketed as Bologna which is some 70 km far, but it's also near (30-40 km) to a very touristic coast in the summer.
Also what other new FR bases do you expect in the near future?
