Quite suprising! I wonder how much this will affect SK,DY and BA on the OSL-LON market?

Vilnius seems a bit of a random choice for OSL.

Same though here. However OSL-VNO is served by SAS and Norwegian, while VNO-Torp is served by Wizzair.

If moving to Torp, they would compete with W6; by moving to OSL they can compete with DY and SAS and likely much more lucrative fares.

Could it be a VNO-based plane flying VNO-OSL-STN-OSL-STN-OSL-STN-OSL-VNO each day?

Edit:
Checked the schedule, and it looks like one plane flying VNO-OSL-STN-OSL-VNO starting early morning from VNO, and another flying STN-OSL-STN-OSL-STN starting midday from STN.

Not really, as it is a significant market between Norway and Lithuania

By having a very early morning flights from VNO, they will also arrive early enough at OSL to be able to offer an early morning departure OSL-STN without having to base an aircraft at OSL. VNO-OSL will arrive at OSL around 7ish or just after, making OSL-STN depart 07:45

It shouldn't be a surprise as it is the same program Ryanair got slots for the summer 2016 season, which they didn't start unntill now.

While there is a significant increase in the OSL-London market, it is not when looking at Oslo-London. Remember the flights are actually just moved from RYG to OSL, and both Norwegian and Ryanair has more or less given up TRF-London

It is interesting how the play with the timings... London, Oslo and Vilnius being in 3 different time zones. However the choice of VNO does not seem casual as they are competing with SAS and DY so (as you say) there is a large (VFR?) market and Ryanair wants compete face to face with SAS and DY instead of Wizzair.

That would make sense. When the CPH base closed, one of the aircraft moved to VNO and operates VNO-CPH-LTN-CPH-VNO on an early rotation. Noticeable as W patterns aren't that common at FR.

In the case of CPH and OSL, "W" patterns are due to those two airports not being a base. Ryanair has a number of W patterns in France since there are no bases in the country. There is even a daily domestic LIL-MRS and a number of routes from BVA (Figari or Beziers domestic, but also RBA, ZGZ or TSF) all in W pattern.

You mean KUN-CPH-LTN-CPH-KUN. Now when Vilnius becomes a base too they might move CPH from KUN to VNO next year to directly compete with SAS.

Planned schedule:

OSL 07:45 08:50 STN
OSL 15:25 16:30 STN
OSL 20:25 21:30 STN

STN 09:15 OSL 12:10
STN 11:55 OSL 15:00
STN 16:55 OSL 20:00

OSL 12:35 15:30 VNO
VNO 06:20 07:20 OSL

As predicted here, one aircraft does VNO-OSL-STN-OSL-VNO. The 2 other London flights are with an STN based aircraft.

I thought there was sort of "pseudo base" at MRS during the Summer months, with based aircraft but crew being flown in from elsewhere. Might not be active anymore.

Sorry, I did of course mean KUN.

Yes but the average business passanger might think about flying with FR now that they operate from OSL instead if RYG.
