26TH BASE IN REUS:

Ryanair Announces 26th Base in Reus Barcelona

2 A/CRAFT ($140m) & 12 ROUTES DELIVER OVER 1M PAX P.A

Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fares airline today (12th Feb) announced its 26th European and fifth Spanish base in Reus Barcelona. From October, Ryanair will invest $140M in 2 new aircraft and 12 routes that will deliver 1,000 jobs and over 1m passengers p.a. for Tarragona.

In just five years, Ryanair has smashed Iberia’s high fare monopoly by guaranteeing Spanish passengers the lowest fares and no fuel surcharges ever. This has driven down the cost of travel and delivered an annual €2bn tourism spend in the Spanish regions.

Ryanair’s new base in Reus Barcelona will replicate the success of our existing bases in Alicante, Girona, Madrid and Valencia, transforming tourism to the region and saving passengers €100m p.a. compared to Iberia’s high fares and fuel surcharges.

Announcing Ryanair’s 26th European base in Reus, CEO Michael O’Leary said,

“We congratulate Reus for fighting off stiff competition from seven other airports across Europe to win this new base which guarantees over 1m passengers p.a and two new aircraft worth over $140m for 12 Ryanair routes.

“Ryanair will now develop the region’s massive untapped potential by giving the tourism industry year round low fare access to Europe’s largest cities. The 1m passengers that Ryanair delivers to/from Reus next year will generate a local visitor spend of at least €150m.

“All of Ryanair’s routes from Reus are available until midnight Thursday for just €5 and we advise passengers to book early as demand will be very strong”.

Looks like the last 3 destinations FR are trying to get a piece of the Domestic Market in Spain.

For there sake I hope Spain don't introduce a tax like the UK.

Was the BHX route announced when BHX was made a base?

Quoting JWMD123 (Reply 2):

Yeah. REU was one of the twenty new routes announced when FR's BHX base was announced on the 15th Jan.

So, since 1st Jan 2008, FR has announced:

BOH as its 24th base on 9th Jan
BHX as its 25th base on 15th Jan
REU as its 26th base on 12th Feb

Does that mean he uses an FR 738 as a private jet nowadays?  Smile

He always uses FR machines to fly to wherever he's to make a big announcement. He even flew DUB-BHD! Should have got the train!  Wink

Is it me or is that a pretty condescending thing to say in a public notice? If I was the mayor of Reus I'd tell MOL to take a hike and take his two grotty little aircraft with him.

Have you seen Air Berlin's operations out of PMI recently? It's huge! I think MOL has a long way to go before he can boast that sort of presence in any Spanish base.  Wink

FR has 55 non-stop routes from GRO, its largest Spanish base, according to its website and including announced routes. This compares to AB's 38 non-stop routes from PMI, according to the list on Wikipedia and including announced routes.

Here's the plan for the 2-based 73Hs. Clearly now routes/increased frequencies are to be announced, unless some existing routes, or a part thereof, will be transferred to REU-based machines:

REU-SVQ 2x daily:

REU-SVQ 0640-0805 (FR2115), 1955-2120 (FR2141)
SVQ-REU: 0830-0955 (FR2116), 2145-2310 (FR2142)

REU-BVA 1x daily:

REU-BVA: 1615-1815 (FR2117)
BVA-REU: 1840-2025 (FR2118)

REU-SDR 1x daily

REU-SDR: 1635-1750 (FR2127)
SDR-REU: 1815-1930 (FR2128)

REU-SVQ 1x daily

REU-SVQ: 0630-0810 (FR2113)
SVQ-REU: 0835-1010 (FR2114)

---

I'm not convinced that the above routes will be successful, despite REU being close to Costa Dorada, Salou, near PortAventura (Universal Studios), and that central Barcelona is "close" at 103kms (driving time about 1 hour 20 minutes). But hey: best to wait to see what materalises.
