New Paris base earmarked
RYANAIR HAS announced that Paris/Beauvais is set to become its newest base from December.
The low-cost carrier has outlined a US$200m investment and is place to base a pair of Boeing 737-800s, which can serve 32 routes across 13 nations.
While the firm already works into Beauvais, the move can help introduce new routes, two which have already been confirmed: Manchester and Paphos (Cyprus) equally at twice-weekly. As a result, a total of 2,300 projects will be encouraged, both directly and indirectly, at Beauvais.
François Rubichon, Paris Beauvais Airport’s chairman of the board, stated:”Our historical relationship was strengthened and is now evolving to another dimension with this operational base, its tasks and the prospective developments it enables, particularly in such tough times for air transportation. “Paris/Beauvais is the first base announced by Ryanair in Europe since the start of the catastrophe and materialises the hard work completed for several months involving SAGEB [the company that runs the airport] and Ryanair teams. Each of the workers and spouses are looking forward to welcoming the first two aircraft and its crews [on December 3],” he added. (Photo Flick Commons/ Tony Hisgett)
