"Ryanair has a soft spot for Frankfurt-Hahn"
Frankfurt-Hahn, February 14, 2002. Today Ryanair opened its second base in mainland Europe and, simultaneously, the first "turnstile" in Germany. The airline noted for its low-cost flights is now flying daily, in some cases several times, from Frankfurt-Hahn to a total of ten destinations in England, France, Italy, Ireland, Norway and Scotland. "Air traffic is undergoing radical changes. Ryanair has recognized the sign of the times and is offering cheap flights for all. Ryanair has since become the largest and most successful low-cost carrier in Europe. Frankfurt-Hahn has established itself as the leading low-cost airport in Germany and, together with Ryanair, will continue its success story in seamless fashion." This is the view of Jörg Schumacher, general manager of Flughafen Frankfurt-Hahn GmbH.
