Hamburg Rescue Fares Launched As Easyjet Closes Base

07 Jun 2017

Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (7 June), launched €9.99 Hamburg rescue fares to accommodate customers affected by Easyjet’s closure of its Hamburg base at the end of the winter season.

Ryanair opened its Hamburg base in November 2016 with 2 based aircraft, and has reported record bookings on its Hamburg summer 2017 schedule, with 21 routes in total, including 7 new routes to Faro, Katowice, Lamezia, Thessaloniki, Valencia, Venice Treviso and Verona, extra flights to Palma and 7 new summer services to Brussels, Dublin, Gran Canaria, London Stansted, Manchester, Milan Bergamo and Sofia, which will help deliver 1.7m customers p.a. at Hamburg Airport, supporting 60 direct and over 1,200* indirect jobs.

Ryanair customers can fly to and from Hamburg on the lowest fares, with the most on-time flights and most reliable service, and can look forward to further improvements, as Ryanair continues its “Always Getting Better” programme, which includes more new routes, new digital features, connecting flights and even more low fares.

These €9.99 rescue fares are on sale now on the website, for travel between 15th June and 15th December, but must be booked by midnight Thursday (8 June).

Ryanair’s Chief Commercial Officer, David O’Brien said:        

“Ryanair customers can continue to enjoy the lowest fares and most reliable service to and from Hamburg and we’ve released €9.99 Hamburg rescue fares to assist customers affected by the closure of Easyjet’s Hamburg base.

Ryanair will continue to connect Hamburg with major business centres on high frequency services including Brussels (daily), Manchester (daily), Milan (daily) and London (2 daily) with seats available from just €9.99, making Ryanair the ideal choice for German business and leisure customers and visitors.

We look forward to growing our Hamburg routes, traffic and jobs and will continue discussions with Hamburg Airport over potential new routes, underlining our commitment to the Hamburg region, while other airlines – who cannot compete with our low fares – reduce traffic and retreat.

Customers can fly to and from Hamburg at fares starting from just €9.99 between June and December and these rescue fares are on sale now until midnight Thursday (8 June), only on the website. Customers should book quickly because these fares will be gone very soon – just like Easyjet’s base.”
