Ryanair is to launch six new routes from Dortmund to Alghero, Barcelona-Girona, Faro, Malaga, Porto and Palma in March 2013 which the airline says will deliver over 200,000 passengers a year and sustain over 200 “on-site” jobs at Dortmund Airport with 14 weekly flights.
Ryanair’s Michael Cawley remarked, “Ryanair is delighted to announce six new routes to and from Dortmund – our 11th German airport – beginning in March 2013. German consumers/visitors can now beat the recession and escape high fares and fuel surcharges.”
Markus Bunk, Dortmund Airport CEO, added, “This is a great vote of confidence in the potential of both the airport and our region from Europe’s largest airline. This announcement will help create much needed jobs and tourism and shows that Ryanair shares our confidence in the tremendous opportunity for strong market growth here at Dortmund Airport.”
