In Frankfurt, Ryanair’s chief commercial officer, David O’Brien said:
“We are pleased to launch a new base at Frankfurt am Main airport from the end of March, our 9th German base and 85th in Europe, with 4 new routes to Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma, which will deliver 400,000 customers p.a. at Frankfurt am Main Airport, as we add another primary airport to our German network.
"Our two based aircraft represent an investment of $200m, which further underlines our commitment to growing traffic, tourism and jobs in the Hessen region. We look forward to working closely with Fraport to deliver industry leading efficiencies and further growth at Germany’s biggest airport.”
