Ryanair plans to open its 48th base at Billund Airport in March 2012 with two based aircraft and 19 routes in total.
In addition to Ryanair’s existing 14 Billund routes, the airline will open five new routes from Billund to Carcassonne, Corfu, Krakow, Venice and Zadar
“Ryanair is delighted to announce Billund as our 48th base,” declared chief executive Michael O’Leary. “Now Billund consumers and visitors can beat the recession and switch to Ryanair’s lowest fares. Ryanair’s traffic of 800,000 passengers a year will sustain up to 800 jobs at Billund Airport and in the surrounding region.”
