Commencing a total of eight new services, the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) will be connecting the German airport to five new destinations during W17/18, directly linking Cologne Bonn to Bristol, Vitoria, Vilnius, Seville and Venice Treviso for the first time.
“We are very excited about the expansion of the Ryanair network at our airport. This winter our passengers can choose from a wide range of exciting destinations, all of which can be booked at particularly attractive prices,” says Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Management Board.
Having already commenced a four times weekly service to Bristol, the gateway celebrated today’s inaugural twice-weekly link to Vitoria, the capital of northern Spain’s Basque Country. While further expanding Cologne Bonn’s list of destinations, the ULCC will begin twice-weekly flights to Vilnius tomorrow, rounding-up the start of the season by adding twice-weekly services to Seville and Venice Treviso on 2 November.
In addition, Cologne Bonn will experience further growth on existing links with Ryanair. Welcoming the airline’s daily service to Manchester yesterday, twice-weekly services to Marrakech and Bologna also join the ULCC’s network from the German airport this winter.
Budapest Airport’s W17/18 with Ryanair
Having already added 16 new routes so far this year, Budapest Airport has launched W17/18 by celebrating six links with Ryanair in the first few days of the new season. Celebrating the notable addition of the Hungarian gateway’s first year-round service to Marrakech, the ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) has also expanded its route network from Budapest by commencing twice-weekly services to Palermo, Valencia and Edinburgh and a five times weekly service to Prague, while a three times weekly service to Naples joins the roll call of destinations tomorrow.
Commenting on the ULLC’s growth at the airport, Budapest’s Head of Airline Development Balazs Bogats said: “Adding these new services means Ryanair now offers 30 destinations from Budapest helping us work towards our strategic goal to ensure we offer a rich variety of destinations to our customers.”
Delivering more than 1.7 million passengers to Hungary’s capital city last year, Europe’s largest airline (in terms of passenger numbers) has expanded its route network from Budapest by 29% in 2017. Launching the airport’s first direct link to Morocco, Ryanair’s service to Marrakech provides an in-demand link to a potential market of 30,000 round-trip passengers. Adding the airport’s 45th country market, the carrier’s route joins existing African links to Egypt, Algeria and Tunisia, meaning Budapest will offer close to 2,500 weekly seats to the region this winter.
