Ryanair celebrates its 7th anniversary in Bremen: inaugural flight to Béziers is the starting signal for the summer flight schedule
At Bremen Airport there is a sense of celebration in the air right now: Ryanair, Europe’s favourite Low Cost Airline and Bremen Airport are delighted to be celebrating seven years of cooperation. On 20th March 2007 a Ryanair flight took off for the very first time to London-Stansted. Today the Irish airline serves 25 international destinations in thirteen countries and has several aircraft based here in the Hanseatic City.
A lot has happened in the past seven years: after the inaugural flight to London took off from the newly-opened Ryanair base in 2007, eight new routes promptly followed over the ensuing seven months to Tampere, Malaga, Riga, Barcelona (Girona), Venice (Treviso), Stockholm (Skavsta), Alicante and Palma de Mallorca. Two additional destinations - Edinburgh and Haugesund - were launched at the start of the summer flight schedule 2008. In 2009 Faro was introduced and a further destination in Portugal followed in 2010 - Porto. At the start of the summer flight schedule 2011 Ryanair launched three flight connections to the Canary Islands as well as new flight routes to Tallinn, Vilnius and Manchester in the winter flight schedule. The second Italian route in the flight schedule followed in 2012 with Milan (Bergamo). Last year along with the new route to the Irish airline’s home base, Dublin, two Greek destinations, Chania on Crete and Thessaloniki, were also included in the range of flight destinations from Bremen. This year’s summer flight schedule starts off with the inaugural flight to Béziers on 3rd April 2014 followed by a further inaugural flight on 5th April 2014 to the Greek island of Corfu.
For the current year 2014, Ryanair is expecting 1.1 million passengers. Since Ryanair has been operating in Bremen, the Irish airline has already carried 6.7 million passengers and is not far off from the next milestone of 7 million passengers.
