- Ryanair will open a new base at Nuremberg Airport (No.79), from 1 November, with one based aircraft - an investment of $100m.

Ryanair's 7th German base will see five new routes to Budapest (daily), Malta (2 weekly), Manchester (daily), Milan Bergamo (daily) and Rome Ciampino (daily), and more flights to London, which will deliver 450,000 customers per annum and support 330 'on-site' jobs.

Ryanair chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: "Our Nuremberg winter schedule is the ideal choice for both business and leisure customers and we look forward to growing routes, traffic, jobs and tourism in Germany. Ryanair customers can look forward to further improvements in the coming months under our 'Always Getting Better' programme including new cabin interiors, new uniforms and more low fare routes, as we continue to offer so much more than just the lowest fares.

"To celebrate our new Nuremberg base, we are releasing seats on sale at prices from just euro19.99 for travel in March, which must be booked by Monday. Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log on to and avoid missing out."

Nuremberg Airport's managing director, Michael Hupe, said: "The new destinations are a highly appreciated enrichment of our route network, addressing business and leisure travellers. Ryanair recognised the high potential of the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region and is going to seize the opportunities that our market provides to the airline."
