Ryanair opens domestic routes in France and Germany
Ryanair launches its first domestic routes in France (Marseille to Paris) and Germany (Frankfurt (Hahn) to Berlin). The routes will start in May 2008.
For too long, French and German passengers have been forced to suffer Air France and Lufthansa’s high fares and fuel surcharges for the ‘privilege’ of air travel within their own countries. These new routes will slash the cost of domestic travel and will save French and German consumers over €26 million per annum (p/a). Welcoming the announcement, Ryanair’s Peter Sherrard said: French and German passengers will now enjoy Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares within their own countries. 200,000 German passengers will save €20 million p.a. and 60,000 French passengers will save €6 million p.a. compared to Lufthansa and Air France’s high fares.
