Some time ago we informed you that the low-cost giant Ryanair announced it was going to cut its operations in response to the long-announced new air traffic tax proposed by Angela Merkel’s government. While this Irish low-cost carrier is cutting some of its German operations, its also launching new services, as announced recently.
As of March 30, 2010 Ryanair will operate scheduled flights between Airport Magdeburg Cochstedt and four Spanish airports: Alicante, Girona, Malaga and Las Palmas. The carrier will offer two flights a week on all these routes. Airport Cochstedt will make up for for the loss of Altenburg which Ryanair stops serving in March.
Furthermore, Airport Liège is preparing for the arrival of Ryanair. The airport is favourably located and as opposed to Germany flying there does not imply paying the new tax.
What is more, this carrier is strengthening its position in Italy. It has announced the opening of new services, such as Bergamo – Constanta or Turin – Paris Beauvais.
Interested in these routes? Remember that Ryanair kicks off a sale almost every Tuesday and Thursday.
