Ryanair, Europeå‘s largest low fares airline today (14 Feb. 02) commenced operations at its second European base in Frankfurt Hahn Airport.
Ryanair has allocated up to four aircraft to its new base in Frankfurt Hahn, operating over 30 flights each day from Frankfurt on ten international routes to Milan, Pisa and Pescara in Italy, London, Glasgow and Bournemouth in the UK, Perpignan and Montpellier in France, Shannon in the West of Ireland and Oslo in Norway. This new Continental base has already created over 200 new jobs in Frankfurt, and will result in over 1,500,000 new passengers being carried through the airport by Ryanair in the first 12 months of this new base operation. These passengers will save over €200,000,000 compared to the high fares currently being charged by Lufthansa on competing routes from Frankfurt Main Airport.
To celebrate the opening of our new base, Ryanair is announcing air fares at prices that have never before been seen in the German market. Ryanair’s lowest one way fare is over 90% cheaper than the lowest one way fare currently offered by Lufthansa.
