Ryanair opens Munich (West) base

Ryanair will open a new base at Memmingen Airport, approximately 62 miles (100km) from Munich, as it introduces its first connections into the southern German region of Bavaria. It claims in a statement that new routes to Alghero (Sardinia), Alicante, Dublin, Girona, London/Stansted, Pisa and Reus will “at last offer consumers and visitors to the Bavaria region competition, choice and very low airfares compared to the high fares and unjustified fuel surcharges” of existing operators. The flights from Memmingen, dubbed Munich (West) by Ryanair, will begin in May.
