Ryanair will be the first low-cost airline opening a base at the Germany’s biggest airport and home to Lufthansa: Frankfurt.

From March 2017, the Irish airline will serve four leisure destinations from Frankfurt am Main Airport: Malaga, Alicante and Palma in Spain, as well to Faro in Portugal, with daily flights to all of them, which aims to carry 400,000 passengers a year.

Chief commercial officer David O’Brien said: “We are pleased to launch a new base at Frankfurt am Main Airport from the end of March, our ninth German base and 85th in Europe.”

“Our two based aircraft represent an investment of $200 million, which further underlines our commitment to growing traffic, tourism and jobs in the Hessen region”.
