Ryanair says it will open its 50th base (and first in Cyprus) at Paphos in April 2012 with two based aircraft and 14 routes which the carrier expects initially to deliver more than 600,000 passengers a year.
Alfred Van der Meer, Hermes Airport Group chief executive, commented, “This is a great vote of confidence in the potential of both the airport and our region from Europe’s largest airline. Today’s announcement will help create much needed jobs and tourism and shows that Ryanair shares our confidence in the tremendous opportunity for strong market growth at the airport.”
Ryanair’s 14 routes from Paphos in 2012 will serve Chania (Crete), Oslo, Frankfurt Hahn, Patras, Kaunas, Pisa, Krakow, Rome, London, Stockholm, Memmingen, Thessaloniki, Milan and Treviso.
