Ryanair Delivers Tourism Recovery At Nuremberg Airport

Ryanair Delivers Tourism Recovery At Nuremberg Airport

2 Based Aircraft, $200m Investment, Over 1,000 Jobs, 13 New Routes For S‘22

Ryanair, Europe’s no. 1 airline has today (08 Dec) announced the opening of its Nuremberg base – its eight German base – representing a $200m investment and 60 direct local jobs. Delivering two based aircraft and 13 new routes for S’22, Ryanair will connect the regional airport with 13 countries across Europe, significantly driving growth and enhancing the region’s repute as a leading tourist destination.

Ryanair’s new S’22 Nuremberg base will deliver:

  • Two based aircraft – representing a $200m investment
  • Over 1,000 total jobs
  • 13 new routes [27 total] including top destinations Chania, Faro, Madeira, Ibiza and many more
  • 85 weekly flights
  • New tourists to the region, boosting the local economy

Ryanair is leading Europe’s post-Covid recovery as it accelerates growth in jobs and traffic to over 225m guests p.a. over the next 5 years. Having added over 560 new routes and opened 16 new bases this year, Ryanair is now delivering even more growth in S’22 with 65 new B737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft, which offer 4% more seats, reducing CO2 emissions by 16% and noise emissions by 40%, making its S’22 schedule the most exciting and environmentally friendly to date.

Ryanair’s investment in Nuremberg gives a much needed boost to local airports who have been abandoned by the German Govt, who favour major airports such as Berlin and Frankfurt and ignore connectivity and tourism at regional airports. These 13 new routes will connect Nuremberg to key tourist markets including Cagliari, Valencia, Venice and Dublin, and significantly enhance the region’s connectivity and profile as a viable tourist destination for S’22.

While Ryanair continues to invest in Germany, the German Govt continues to protect legacy carriers that don’t operate from regional airports, such as Lufthansa, who have soaked up €9bn in State Aid yet continues to cut its fleet, flights and jobs, and who have done nothing to drive growth or tourism at regional airports in its home country.

In opening this new base, Ryanair is now Nuremberg airport’s biggest airline and the launch of these new routes will put Nuremberg on the map as a leading tourist destination, bringing visitors from across Europe to this scenic walled town, famed for its historical landmarks, open air markets and unique culinary specialities. To celebrate, Ryanair will launch a seat sale with fares from just €29.99 for travel next summer. These amazingly low fares are available until Friday 10th December on Ryanair.com – so get booking fast before they’re snapped up.

Ryanair’s CEO Eddie Wilson said:

“We are delighted to be investing in Nuremberg airport at a time when the German Govt is abandoning its regional airports in favour of legacy airlines and major airports. The opening of our new base at Nuremberg will generate 13 new routes – 27 in total – and deliver increased connectivity – driving tourism and growth for the region as it recovers post-pandemic. This $200m investment will not only boost Germany’s economy by driving vital tourism but will also create more than 60 direct jobs and almost 1,000 jobs in the region. 

At a time when Lufthansa is reducing their fleet, cutting jobs and closing routes while wasting €9bn of taxpayers’ money in State Aid funding, Ryanair is DOUBLING its S’22 schedule at Nuremberg and rebuilding tourism and creating well-paid local jobs in Germany with zero state aid.

Efficient operations and competitive airport charges provide the foundation from which Ryanair can deliver long-term traffic growth and increased connectivity. We worked closely with our partners in Nuremberg airport to secure this growth and improve the services for those that live, work, or wish to visit the region.

To celebrate, we are launching a seat sale with fares available from €29.99 for travel next summer, which must be booked by Friday 10th December. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com now to avoid missing out.”
