Ryanair to open a new base at Gothenburg, wants a three runway solution and will launch the Edinburgh – Copenhagen route

Ryanair (Dublin) will open its 74th base at Gothenburg in September with one based aircraft and 13 routes.

In other news, Ryanair has called for a three runway solution in the South East England (London) area. The airline issued this statement in response to the proposed third runway at London Heathrow:

“Ryanair believes that the proposed Heathrow runway – which won’t be delivered for 10 or 15 years – won’t solve the runway capacity crisis in the South East. Ryanair strongly advocates taking politicians out of runway decision making and allowing each of the three London airports, Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted, to build 3 competing runways which will solve the capacity crisis in the South East for the next 100 years, while at the same time allowing competition between the airports to deliver this capacity efficiently. It remains a fact that additional runways in Stansted and Gatwick can and will be delivered much earlier than any Heathrow third runway.”

The company reported its June traffic grew 14 percent to 9.5 million customers. Its load factor rose five points to 93 percent!

Finally, the ultra low-fare airline announced a new route linking its Edinburgh base with Copenhagen. The new route will operate three days a week starting on November 6.
