Over: The Ryanair/Charleroi Stand-Off

Posted in: Airlines


Ryanair announced today that the airline has reached an agreement with Brussels Charleroi airport. The Irish low-cost carrier had threatened to withdraw from the secondary Brussels airport from November 12 onwards.

All ticket sales for travel after November 12 have been released. A desire to avoid the future sudden strikes at Charleroi provided Ryanair’s purported rationale for freezing sales on flights in and out of the airport.

Since the airline operates 18 routes to and from Charleroi (compared to four operated by Wizz Air and one each by BlueAir, Jet4you, and OnAir) we’d guess that the airport’s administration was quite eager to hold onto the Ryanair routes.
