According to yesterday's "Vjesnik", daily newspapers in Croatia, Ryanair is starting the service from STN to croatian cities Pula (PUY), Rijeka (RJK), Zadar (ZAD) and Osijek (OSI).
The services will start in early 2003, except to Osijek, during 2004.

According to Ryanair officials, the only thing that kept them away from Croatia untill now is "Open skies" agreement, which is still not signed by croatian authorities. Since Croatia is pushing it's way towards EU, the agreement have to be signed not later than january 2003.

Ryanair expects a big demand on the routes from STN to croatian coastal cities, specially during the summer months.

That will be the first no-frills airline serving croatian airports.

Why not Dubrovnik and Split? From Ireland, Ryan could surely pick up relgious pilgrims heading to Medjugorje BiH. Is "STN" Shannon?

STN is London Stansted, the main hub of the Irish airline.

Ryanair's main hub is DUB, because it is registered in Ireland. STN is one of its other hubs.

A big demand on the routes to Croatian coastal cities, specially during the summer, could come not only from STN, but also from Italy and Germany, so I think Croatia could be a successful destination.

I'm not sure if these routes in the winter could be supported by local traffic, since the diffusion of internet and credit cards in Croatia is still low.

Richardw,

in term of flights and pax number, London STN is Ryanair main hub.
Dublin is their second important hub and also the headquarters of the company.

What about debit cards such as delta and switch/maestro are these more common with a bank current account in Croatia.

Split and Dubrovnik are very much charter destinations. Very big charter destinations but I don't see many people planning their own trips to Split from Ireland/UK with Ryanair.

Mostly package deals used for Pilgrims etc.

Might work, there used to be a big tourist trade, very nice places by all accounts. Good for a cheap weekend in the sun, for those who don't want The Sun with their sausages at breakfast.

STN is their biggest hub by a long way. Ryanair have always looked to London as their main market, even going back to when they were a premium service carrier in the 1980's.

A main hub does not necessarily have to be the biggest. Ryanair is registered in Ireland so its main home hub is DUB.

Richardw,
US Airways headquarters is in Arlington, VA.... so does that really mean that their main hub is DCA over PIT, CLT, and PHL? I would define "main hub" by the most flights and passengers, not where the headquarters is. (although most airlines have their headquaters in the same city as their main hub)

There's allready a reaction on the article...

It seems like things are not going to be that easy. Same as Slovenia, Poland, Czech Rep. and other countries-candidates for EU, Croatia is not willing to sign "Open Skies" agreement that easy. That agreement would give the right to the airlines from EU to transport pax even within Croatia, without the same rights for the croatian airlines in EU countries, at least untill Croatia becomes the full member.
In the new whole-mixed and not very understandable article, Ryanairs plans are mentioned as follows:

-Early 2004. (not 2003.) - flights to ZAG, SPU, DBV and PUY
-2005. - flights to OSI, RJK and ZAD.

Stretch 8 and CB777: yea, it seems like those cities are also in the plans.

Airblue: in the first article, Ryanair representative mentioned the possible route Hannover-Pula (?) with potential of 50.000 pax in the summer season.

Anyway... 7 cities in Croatia for Ryanair? They will probably need a hub here  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
