Ryanair announces 41st base in Malta


Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (4th Mar) announced it would open its 41st base at Malta in May 2010 with one based aircraft and 19 routes (6 of which will be new).



Ryanair’s new Maltese base will deliver up to 800,000 passengers p.a. (and sustain 800 jobs in Malta) on over 120 weekly flights as Ryanair invests over $70 million at Malta Airport.


Ryanair will open six new routes from Malta to Billund, Bologna, Krakow, Marseille, Seville and Valencia and these go on sale on tomorrow.


Ryanair celebrated its new 41st EU base in Malta by releasing 1m €9.99 seats for travel in late March and April (excluding Easter week), which are available for booking until midnight Sunday (7th Mar).


In Malta today, Ryanair’s Colin Casey said:


“Ryanair is delighted to announce Malta as our 41st base with 19 routes from May 2010 which go on sale on tomorrow. Maltese consumers/visitors can now beat the recession and escape Air Malta’s high fares by choosing Ryanair’s lowest fares and our no fuel surcharge guarantee to 19 exciting destinations all over Europe including France, Italy, Spain and the UK among others. Ryanair’s 800,000 passengers p.a. will sustain up to 800 jobs at Malta Airport.”
