Ryanair to launch direct route to Cologne from Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Ryanair has greatly expanded its operations at Stockholm Arlanda Airport over the past six months and is now launching another European route from its new base. Beginning in late March, the carrier will fly twice weekly to Germany’s fourth largest city, Cologne.
Ryanair continues its expansion in Sweden and at Stockholm Arlanda Airport and is now adding another European route in time for spring, to Cologne, located in the state of North Rhein-Westphalia in western Germany.
Beginning March 27, 2022, Ryanair will serve the route Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) – Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN) twice weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays. Tickets are now on sale.
Cologne was served with a summer route before the pandemic, and the largest group of passengers between Stockholm and Cologne were private passengers, mostly tourists, but many also travelled to visit family and friends.
Ryanair is not alone is offering a direct air link from Arlanda, since Lufthansa Group’s German low cost carrier, Eurowings, will resume service to Cologne this spring.
The Irish low cost carrier Ryanair Holdings is the largest airline group in Europe today and includes the subsidiaries Buzz, Lauda and Malta Air along with Ryanair. The company has some 80 bases with connections to about 250 destinations in 40 countries, with a fleet of 460 aircraft and another 210 Boeing 737 aircraft on order. Ryanair has high sustainability goals and plans to fuel 12.5 per cent of its flights with sustainable aviation fuel by 2030. For more information: ryanair.com.
Swedavia’s work for net zero aviation
Swedavia has carried out ambitious sustainability work. All ten of its airports achieved the goal of zero fossil carbon dioxide emissions from their own operations by year-end 2020. Swedavia also works actively to promote the switch to sustainable aviation fuel and has the goal that five per cent of all fuel used for refuelling at Swedish airports shall be fossil-free by 2025. Swedavia’s climate transition work and pioneering work to operate climate-smart airports have won international awards, and in 2021 the trade organisation Airports Council International (ACI) named Stockholm Arlanda Airport Eco-Innovation Airport of the Year.
