Ryanair announce new base in Krakow


Lost-cost airline Ryanair is to open a new base at Krakow’s John Paul II Airport in Balice.

“Ryanair is delighted to announce Krakow as our 53rd base, and our second in Poland,” enthused Michael Cawley, Deputy Chief Executive of the airline, at a press conference held in the city on Wednesday.

He also unveiled four new connections with Krakow, taking the overall tally of links with the city in southern Poland to 51.

The new connections will be with Manchester, Dortmund, Gothenburg and Kos, with flights beginning in April 2013.

All in all, Ryanair will be running some 224 flights per week between Krakow and other cities, including Paris, London and Milan, increasing its level by 16 percent.

The airline is offering 100,000 special deals for January to mark the new developments, with ticket prices from 12 pounds across Europe.

However, customers keen to take part in the deal must strike immediately, as the offer closes at midnight on Thursday (13 December).

Angry Ryanair passenger eats his winning scratchcard

KRAKOW TOURS – A Ryanair passenger who became enraged when he was told he could not claim a scratchcard prize on his flight ate his winning ticket.

The man was flying from Poland to the East Midlands on a Ryanair flight when he won 10,000 euros (£8,765) on a scratchcard he had purchased on board.

Ryanair confirmed he ate his ticket on 26 February after cabin staff refused to pay him the winnings immediately.

The airline said it could not reveal the winner’s identity.

Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said the cabin crew and some passengers urged the man not to eat the ticket, but he stood up and ate it anyway.
