The budget carrier Ryanair last month announced significant expansion in the German market announcing Berlin Schonefeld as it's 73rd European Base, with five based aircraft operating a total of 22 routes and major growth of Cologne base increasing base fleet from one to three based operating a total of 17 routes.
Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said "Germany is a significant growth market for Ryanair and as we announce our 6th German base at Berlin, we will continue to connect key German cities with Europe’s major centers of business".
Indeed Ryanair's expansion is focused on building frequency on key business routes in German market to appeal to high yield business passengers against well established competitors. Berlin Schonefeld to Cologne was launched as a four times daily service commencing 26th October since then a fifth frequency has been added to the scheduled, and is launching Brussels Zaventem three times daily, connecting two key business centers.
On leisure routes prior to launch frequencies have been increased from Berlin Schonefeld to Malaga and Palma from two to three weekly.
