Fair Use:

"MILAN, Dec 23 (Reuters) - Malpensa has rejected Ryanair's offer to operate out of the international airport, describing as "unacceptable" a plan made by the airline at time when the future role of Italy's northern hub has come under doubt.

Ryanair (RYA.I: Quote, Profile, Research), Europe's largest discount airline, had presented a plan in September after Alitalia's latest reorganisation envisioned halving the number of flights out of the airport near Milan, Italy's financial and fashion capital."

One wonders though, what proposals did FR make to the operators of MXP? The truth is that a low-cost operator like FR which haggles for reduced landing and handling fees would not be attractive to an airport like MXP which is by and large a major international hub. AZ would certainly have paid higher charges for using it.

MXP would certainly hold out for a bigger operator accepting higher charges or else perhaps if FR accepted higher fees it may still build a base from there.


Hop to it, fly for life!

Easyjet already has a base in Malpensa, so it wasn't like MXP should be desperate for a deal.
