This may not be the biggest news of the day for you guys but I have to celebrate the fact that my little home airport, Deauville St Gatien (DOL), in Normandy, France, will get its first regular (ie non charter) flight in a long time, thanks to Ryanair!
FR will serve DOL from STN 3 times a week starting next october. I am hoping that the frequencies will go up once the spring comes, since Deauville is a very touristy town and more ppl will want to fly there.
The opening of this route will double the airport's traffic if everything goes as FR has planned it. It comes a few months after the airport was selected as the future international airport of Normandy (instead of competing airports URO (Rouen-Boos), CFR (Caen-Carpiquet) and LEH (Le Havre-Octeville)).
Here are a few links if you are interested (sorry, all of them are in French)
