Ryanair to launch new Niš service


Europe’s largest carrier will launch a new two weekly service from Hahn to Niš Constantine the Great Airport starting January 13, 2020. It will compete directly against Air Serbia on the route. The development comes just a month after the budget airline announced a new service from Malta to Niš, starting this November. “Niš consumers and visitors can now book their holidays on six twice weekly winter routes to Berlin Schonefeld, Bratislava, Frankfurt Hahn, Malta, Milan Bergamo, and Stockholm, as far out as March 2020, enjoying even lower fares and Ryanair’s customer care improvements”, the company said in a statement. Flights between Hahn and Niš will run each Monday and Friday. Further details can be found here.

    2. So Frankfurt region will have flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. With both JU and FR offering competitive one way fares I am sure passengers will have maximum flexibility, not just from Nis but the wider region!

  3. FR is building a nice presence. Soon enough they will have enough flights to open a base which would be just so cool.

  4. So FR will have double daily flights year-round in INI. I guess Nish will really pass 450.000 passengers next year.

    1. One aircraft bases do not make financial sense, so forget about that.

    2. Why not? I think it does.

    3. Well 14 weekly is two rotations a day so they are not far from justifying a base, they need an additional 7 frequencies which isn't that bad.

    4. @Anon 13:24: Too many fixed costs to be covered by a single aircraft.

    5. Then let them base two planes there, no one really minds.

    6. This logic is like saying that Adria cannot base 1 aircraft at MBX, but some no-name Chinese company will have a profitable long-haul hub.

    7. Had the Slovenian government done their part they would have launched that MBX hub.

      Delete
    8. Haha yes it was the Slovenian government who is at fault with MBX project. Right. Spot on.

      Delete
    9. Well, somehow it was.

      If it supported the idea of FR in MBX (as they support 4K and JP) it would have been very important for regional tourism of that part of Slovenia especially if we know that Ljubljana, Graz, Klagenfurt or Zagreb do not have LCC traffic developed on their airports.

  5. Do PRN, SKP and SOF have flights to Berlin and how many?

    ReplyDelete

    1. SOF has 6 weekly SXF flights by FR and 5 weekly TXL by FB.
      W6 used to fly to HHN but launched daily FRA instead.

      Delete
    2. That's really not that many flights to Berlin, I expected more. I guess Bulgarians did not emigrate that much to Berlin.

      Are there any Sofia Hahn flights or is it all to Frankfurt?

      Does SKP have flights to Berlin or Frankfurt Main/Hahn?

      Delete
    3. Bulgarians emigrated mainly to Spain and UK.
      No more SOF-HHN flights only FRA.
      There are SKP-SXF operated by W6.

      Delete
    4. Also PRN-SXF operated by EasyJet I believe 3x week

      Delete
    5. I think Bulgarians also emigrated to Italy. Lots of flights to there.

      How many flights are there from SKP to SXF?

      Delete
    6. from SKP

      2 x to SXF
      4 x to HHN

      both with W6

      Delete
  6. Congrats INI! This is a respectable network.

  7. Excellent news! Congratulations INI!

  8. And still no Nish-Paris flights. :(

  9. We were told new management will close down the airport because of Vinci at Belgrade and that Air Serbia came to Nis to kick out Wizz and Ryan. Nis airport is growing and Ryan is now doing the opposite by adding Malta and Hahn! Someone was lying to us.

  10. Wondering why Ryanair didn't apply for the subsidies that the Government of Serbia offered for this route, and other routes.

    1. They would need to base another aircraft somewhere else in Serbia?

  11. OMG, what a sh***y schedule thay made!
    You land in HHN at 23:50 on Friday night, and considering Hahn is not your destination, you cannot be anywhere else before 01:00.

    Coming back, you need to be at the airport at 05:00, that means you should depart Frankfurt say, at 03:00.

    With having to book 3 nights and actually spend 48 hours,I just don't see anyone would use this for tourism purposes.
    Maybe it can work for gastos, but the schedule is really lame.

    1. What do you expect, it's a low cost company. The aircraft need to fly to make money, which means they have to fly most of the day, so in this case the aircraft will land from somewhere in HHN at midnight. It just happens to be from INI.

    2. Ko ti bre zivi u Frankfuurtu. Hahn i LCC su keva.

      Delete
    3. I don't expect anything, as I had no idea about the development of this route.
      I am purely commenting and stating my expectation that it would be gasto route, due to its lousy schedule.

      Delete
    4. Of course it's a gasto route, what's wrong with that

  12. Ма идемо бре!!!! Само напред!!! Ниш кидаааа

  13. INI can have close to 3000 scheduled passenger departures next year.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Seems like 2020 will be even better for Serbian aviation than 2019 was. Who would have thought.

    It's time for Serbia to shine now and to show it's true potential. People mocked INI's aspirations of reaching 1.000.000 but they are not laughing these days.

  15. Any news on Ryanair and Belgrade?

    1. I think they chose INI as their main airport.

    2. BEG needs FR more than FR needs BEG

      Delete
    3. No it does not. BEG has LCC choice with Wizz and Easyjet plus many others.

      Delete
    4. Plus Norwegian plus Pegasus
