Only thing I know is that Ryanair wanted to establish a base in BSL
/ MLH / LFSB), France">BSL
some time ago. But the airport did not accept the conditions (for instance paying one million USD in cash, paying Ryanair's advertising, charging no landing fees, renaming the airport into EuroAirport Zurich
). The airport is better off with easyJet now. However the door is still open for Ryanair because the airport introduced a new tariff system that benefits airlines carrying high volumes of passengers.
They are currently speculating on an opening of Lahr airport for civilian flights in nearby Germany.
Potential is here, especially we need more low cost flights to Germany (Frankfurt/Hahn, Hamburg/Lübeck, Düsseldorf/Weeze etc.).
I dont think they will go into GVA
/ LSGG), Switzerland">GVA
but some time ago there were rumours about Ryanair opening a base in nearby France (cannot remember the name of the city, maybe Annecy? ).
