Ryanair Announces 7 New Routes to/from Oslo (Rygge)

4 new Oslo (Torp) routes & 1.8m passengers p.a. for Oslo

Ryanair, the World’s favourite airline, announced today (16th July) that, from October 2009, it will open seven new routes to/from Oslo (Rygge) Airport (approx 50kms south of Oslo) and four new routes (20 in total) from Oslo (Torp) as Ryanair offers more competition, choice and the lowest airfares from 10 Scandinavian airports, allowing even more passengers to avoid SAS’s high fares and unjustified fuel surcharges.

Ryanair’s seven new routes from Oslo (Rygge) to Alicante, Barcelona (Girona), Brussels (Charleroi), Bremen, London (Stansted), Madrid and Milan (Bergamo), beginning in October, will deliver over 500,000 passengers p.a. and sustain 500 new jobs in Oslo (Rygge) Airport.

Ryanair’s four new routes from Oslo (Torp) to Krakow, Lodz, Paris (Beauvais), and Rome (Ciampino) will begin from September and increase Ryanair’s traffic at Oslo (Torp) to 1.3 million p.a. which will sustain 1,300 local jobs.

Ryanair celebrated these 11 new routes and 1.8 million passengers p.a. at Oslo by releasing 1 million 1NOK seats for travel across its European network in September and October which are available for booking on www.ryanair.com until midnight Friday (17th July).

Perhaps TRF is the 34th base?

Norwegian taxes are punitive. FR will I think continue to serve Oslo from its other bases rather than opening a base in Oslo itself (or Torp or Rygge as the case may be!)

This is really a move firmly directed at Norwegian rather than SAS.

Norwegian recently announced flights from Rygee and CPH to DUB. As we all know, FR does not like competition on its home soil.

Nevermind Ryanair's unjustified wheelchair levy, credit card fees and check-in fees...

This is good new for Rygge airport! Congratulations to Ryanair and Rygge. I have to say that I was Laughing when O' Leary was to late for the press conferense because of their delayed airplanes. They have been very public in Scandinavia lately that they are more on time than SAS. SAS has claimed Ryanair is using wrong numbers when they state that thay are more on time than SAS. This time their media stunt really did backfire in Norway!!!

Which still gives a cheaper ticket considering its 1NOK one way, which I bought today...
No luggage, no wheelchair, and internet checkin

They are using OSL not Rygge for Dublin service

Norwegian Air Shuttle will not start their plannes route to London after Ryanair arrived on Rygge. It seems like Norwegian will avoid a direct competition against the most aggressive airline in Europe. It might be a reasonable thing to do for now. But sooner or later they I believe they might fly on the exactly same routes. But for now Norwegian just gives Ryanair free room.

...I love that part of the PR....somehow there just wasn't room in the press release for FR to say they could pay FR fees instead for checking in etc. and credit card fees that are 2500% higher than the actual cost  Smile or land at an airport 1 1/2 hour drive from Oslo. The flight could be shorter than the drive to the city! How they get away with it I'll never know but millions and millions of passengers can't all be wrong so they must appeal to someone.

You don't honestly think they, or any other business, would mention such things in their press release, do you?

I would agree with several of your points (sarcasm or not), but RYG is actually only some 18 km further from the center of Oslo compared to OSL, which is only 10 minutes in a car. Oslo center to RYG should not take more than 50 minutes.

Rygge Airport (RYG) is located 60 km southeast of Oslo, nearby the town of Moss, on the eastern side of the Oslofjord. Torp Airport (TRF) is located 110 km sothwest of Oslo, nearby the town of Sandefjord, on the western side of the Oslofjord.

I would guess that many Oslonians will go to Rygge Airport instead of Torp Airport now when flying Ryanair (maybe except people living in the western part of the city + Bærum/Asker). Rygge Aiport is also linked to Oslo by motorway (E6), as well as train, so traveling to/from should be fairly convenient compared to many other airports Ryanair serve.

PS: The main international airport for Oslo is Gardermoen Airport (OSL), located 50 km north of the city, nearby the town of Jessheim.
