It is still not clear whether the state of Carinthia will buy back Klagenfurt Airport or not. Meanwhile, Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair announced additional passengers and three new summer routes. You go to Alicante and Palma de Mallorca – the London flight stays the same.
Ryanair representatives on Wednesday in Klagenfurt tried to put the Irish low-cost airline in the best light possible. It is a reliable partner, the fastest growing airline in Europe and an employer. For Klagenfurt, this means 14 weekly flights next summer, namely to the holiday destinations of Alicante and Palma de Mallorca. The flight to London, which has been operating again from Klagenfurt since this winter, is still in place.
travelers from neighboring countries
If you book by Friday, you will pay for the ticket from €29.99. Our fiscal year now starts in April until the end of March 2024. We expect more than 131,000 passengers in Klagenfurt during this period. It’s definitely something to be proud of, says Andreas Gruber, Ryan Air’s principal. Ryanair is also content to use winter flights to London, Dublin, Manchester and Brussels, with 41,000 passengers so far. Flights can already be booked again for next winter.
Markus Heppner from Klagenfurt Airport said that passengers also come from neighboring countries. “We don’t have exact numbers, but we see them every day when we look at the parking lot. We see a lot of cars with Slovenian license plates, and some with Croatian ones as well.” Here you can see that the assembly area is not limited to Carinthia.
Liliair launch is open
Klagenfurt was chosen by Ryanair because of its efficient operations and competitive airport fees. It was not answered whether there were also marketing contributions from the partially privatized airport. It’s also currently unclear when Liliair’s promised flights from airport majority owner Lilihill will start – more on this at Liliair provided New Airline. She has repeatedly said that information will be available in the next few days in response to ORF requests.
