Air Snippets

Posted in: Airlines


1. Ryanair has put together something it’s calling the “Malpensa Manifesto,” a plan to increase investment in Milan-area airports and launch 50 international and ten domestic routes from Milan Malpensa.

2. We’ve been mesmerized and a Newark-Toronto link in the works—Porter makes small scale look very, very appealing. It’s got a clean and crisp brand, a fab in-flight magazine, and a base at the very central Toronto City Centre Airport. OK, so Canada is a fair jump from Europe (and Porter isn’t exactly a low-cost carrier) but still. Check it out.

3. Jet2‘s in expansion mode. In May 2008 the UK low-cost carrier will launch routes between Leeds Bradford and Avingon, Heraklion, Jersey, La Rochelle, Lübeck, Madrid, Olbia, and Paphos.
