On Wednesday (December 8, 2021), Ryanair announced the launch of a new base in Nuremberg, their eighth German base, with two based aircraft representing a $200 million investment and a total of 27 routes and 85 weekly flights, including 13 new routes for summer 2022. The base will create 60 direct local jobs and support over 1,000 total jobs. Ryanair’s new routes to/from Nuremberg for summer 2022 include Banja Luka, Cagliari, Chania, Dublin, Faro, Girona, Ibiza, Lviv, Madeira, Sofia, Tallinn, Valencia and Venice. With the opening of the new base, Ryanair is now Nuremburg Airport’s largest airline. To celebrate, the carrier is offering fares from only €19.99 until Friday, December 10, 2021, for travel next summer.


In Wednesday’s announcement, Ryanair’s CEO, Eddie Wilson, said in part,


“We are delighted to be investing in Nuremberg airport at a time when the German Govt is abandoning its regional airports in favour of legacy airlines and major airports. The opening of our new base at Nuremberg will generate 13 new routes – 27 in total – and deliver increased connectivity – driving tourism and growth for the region as it recovers post-pandemic. This $200m investment will not only boost Germany’s economy by driving vital tourism but will also create more than 60 direct jobs and almost 1,000 jobs in the region…


“…Efficient operations and competitive airport charges provide the foundation from which Ryanair can deliver long-term traffic growth and increased connectivity. We worked closely with our partners in Nuremberg airport to secure this growth and improve the services for those that live, work, or wish to visit the region. To celebrate, we are launching a seat sale with fares available from €29.99 for travel next summer, which must be booked by Friday 10th December. Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com now to avoid missing out.”
