Ryanair - New Base At SNN

Tue Nov 30, 2004 9:11 pm

Ryanair has announced a decision to base new 737-800s at SNN in a $240m investment (actually that just means the aircraft value - four 737s?). There will be fourteen new routes, including a route to Sweden and others, too.

Great news; I'll post the news report when I can!

Here's more:

Ryanair has confirmed that it will make
Shannon its next European base,
expanding its route network to 14 in an
investment worth around E180m.

The airline says it will deliver 1.3
million passengers in the first year of
the agreement, rising to two million by
the fifth year.

Ryanair estimates that 2,000 jobs will
be generated, with the airline itself
employing 200.

As well as existing routes to Glasgow,
Liverpool and Stansted in the UK,
Ryanair will also fly to Luton, Gatwick
and Nottingham.

In continental Europe, the airline will
add routes to Barcelona Girona,
Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Milan and
Stockholm to its existing routes.

Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary
said the move would 'revolutionise the
future growth' of Shannon Airport.

He also praised the new Shannon Airport

Looks like they're really gunning for EZY, which has recently announced routes from LGW to NOC and SNN (FR has already announced LGW-NOC). Let battle commence (but not end before I get a chance to fly an EZY 319 from LGW to SNN!!)
