Ryanair To Stop Flying To Frankfurt From March 31
Ryanair will shut its base in Frankfurt from March 31 and shift the five aircraft it has stationed there elsewhere, it has said, citing high airport fees.
All Ryanair flights to and from Frankfurt, Germany's busiest airport, from March 31 have been cancelled, it said.
Pilots and crew based at Frankfurt were informed on Friday January 7 and will be able to apply for jobs elsewhere in the Ryanair network, it added.
The carrier said that it is still investing in its German operations, including a $200 million investment in a new base in Nuremberg with two aircraft.
Frankfurt Airport Operator Statements
Frankfurt airport operator Fraport said it has introduced an "extremely moderate" increase in fees.
"Many partners see it as fair. Everyone is treated equally, there are no special rights," a spokesperson for Fraport said.
