Ryanair has announced it will open a new base at Berlin (No. 73), from October with five based aircraft, an investment of $500 million dollars, and launched 16 new routes (22 in total) as part of its Berlin Winter 2015 schedule, which will grow Ryanair’s Berlin traffic to 2.6m customers p.a., and support 2,600 “on-site” jobs.

From winter 2015, Ryanair will grow in Berlin with 16 new routes to: Alicante, Athens, Barcelona, Bari, Bologna, Bratislava, Brussels, Glasgow,  Madrid, Malaga, Palermo, Palma, Riga, Rome C, Venice & Valencia. There will be 22 routes in total with 191 weekly flights. Nine extra weekly flights to/from Dublin will be added as well as four daily flights to London Stansted and two daily flights to Milan.

Ryanair’s new Berlin routes go on sale tomorrow. Ryanair celebrated the launch of its new Berlin base, as well as its 30th birthday, by releasing 100,000 seats for sale across its European network, at prices from €19.99 for travel in March and April, which must be booked by Monday (9 Mar).

In Berlin, Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said: “Germany is a significant growth market for Ryanair and as we announce our 6th German base at Berlin, we will continue to connect key German cities with Europe’s major centres of business. Indeed, we are launching new Berlin routes to Athens, Barcelona, Brussels, Glasgow, Madrid and Rome, as well increasing flights to and from Dublin, London and Milan, making Ryanair the ideal choice for both business and leisure customers.”
