Ryanair plans London services from Munich Airport
7th October 2015
London is planned as one of the first destinations Ryanair will serve from the German city, which is the home of some leading international trade fairs such as the Bauma attracting business travellers from various industries including construction and engineering or the ISPO for sports fashion, apparel and equipment industry.
Ryanair’s plans to provide convenient services for clients and to become a future feeder airline for conventional airlines are an important part of the airline’s new low-cost hub strategy. Easyjet is currently the only low-cost airline flying to London from Munich Franz-Josef-Strauss Airport, operating flights to three UK airports Gatwick, Luton and Stansted. With Lufthansa and British Airways currently operating flights between London and Munich, the newly planned Ryanair Munich route is not likely to be serving London Heathrow Airport.
Ryanair currently services Munich via its Memmingen hub, which is about 1.5 hours drive and over 115 kilometres away from Munich. Other mainland Europe airports include Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Milan-Malpensa, Prague and Rome Fiumicino, with Amsterdam Schiphol to be added later this month. The budget airline has also recently applied for summer 2016 slots at Paris Charles De Gaulle.
