Low-cost carriers to boost passenger numbers

Starting in March 2017, Ryanair will offer 28 flights per week from their new base at Frankfurt airport. Because of low-cost carriers continously expanding, the German Airports Association (ADV) projects a strong increase in passenger numbers for 2017.

The German Airports Association (ADV) expects a surge in passengers of around 3.1 percent for 2017, the Berlin-based company recently said in a statement. Similar growth had been achieved in 2016, as the 22 ADV-member airports recorded a passenger increase of 3.0 percent in total. The rise in passenger numbers is linked to low-cost carriers like Eurowings, Easy Jet and Ryanair expanding in Germany and launching new bases.

Starting in March 2017, Irish no-frills carrier Ryanair will offer 28 flights per week from their new base at Frankfurt airport. They project to bring 400,000 travellers per year from the German financial capital to the tourist destinations of Alicante, Faro, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca, Ryanair chief commercial officer David O'Brien said in a statement last month. Once Frankfurt is operating, Ryanair will count nine bases in Germany. (LEW)
