Ryanair is set to announce its new base tomorrow - first one in Central Europe. The list of possible airports is: BTS, KRK and WRO. WRO was their first Central European destination and until recently had the most routes. KRK just got a handful of new routes and finally BTS with the disappearance of SkyEurope and its proximity to VIE seems to be a recent favorite.

MOL will have press conference in Vilnius in about 15 minutes together with minister of Transport of Lithuania. So if a base to be anounced it can only be KUN or less likely VNO.

I think this is the start of things to come with bases being moved to Eastern Europe and FR and MOL see this is where further growth will come from

Exciting new development.

Might as well post some other new routes here rather than creating a new thread:

HHN-PUY
HHN-AGA
HHN-OSI = restarted*. This also means that OSI will return as a served airport, and its third in Croatia. And HHN will have flights to 3 Croatian airports - ZAD, PUY, OSI.

EDI,

I wonder if this will affect Star1's new EDI-VNO

LGW

Could this be the start of further LGW expansion. I'm sure I read something about the possibility last week

This can badly affect all Star1 operations - Ryanair will fly from KUN to all cities that Star1 fly from VNO.

Great news, but why not BTS ? They have 23 routes now, what is stopping FR from opening a base there? Is there a curfew or something like in EIN ?

Don't say that too loud. FR might start selling tickets to Vienna (Bratislava). Now that would be something.

They actually did advertise BTS like that in the past,but apparantly they were not allowed to do so.

Nice to see Ryanair back in Osijek   well done to Kaunas. I will have to make a trip back to Lithuania soon, its been almost 10years since i was there. I'm Bratislava's day will come, its perhaps the best located airport in 'eastern' europe being at the heart of a heavily populated area (Vienna-Bratislava-Gyor) region.

Excellent news and a huge step forward for Lithuanian aviation. I hope the LGWKUN flight times will enable some North America-KUN connections, even if a airpot transfer LHR-LGW is required. I have done so before and I hope this will make my trips to Lithuania easier.

FR carried 270,000 people on UK-KUN in 2009, as this link shows:

Also, and while we're here, FR is ceasing FDH - see the same link.

Great news for Berlin!!! Now they will finally be a competitor to easyjet and when 2011 new BBI opens its gates I assume that Ryanair will have a base there aswell.

FR is already operating several routes to SXF: Dublin, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Hahn, London-Stansted, Malaga (from 25 June), Milan-Orio al Serio, Oslo-Rygge (from 30 March), Stockholm-Skavsta, Weeze, and now Kaunas (from 5 May).

They seem to expand, but do you really think it's likely them opeing a base there? Is there any continental European Airport which is base to both EZY and FR, thus leading into a dumping price fight (like the short lasting EZY flights into DUB)? On the other hand, EZY seems to have neglected SXF over the last years, there were more route cuts than new announcements. The new BER airport will be equipped with an LCC pier with walk boarding gates (which was only added to the original plans due to increased demand), though I'm not sure if this new airport will fit into FR's secondary-airport scope.

There has been little news about any changes/expansion of the BRE hub. Is any movement likely there? How is it performing?
