Well looking back at the last year;I wonder what is Ryanair's strategy at Bristol ?
RYR will have operated around 280x more departures from BRS in 2018 in comparison to 2017... that's over 50,000 departing seats.
In the winter 17/18 period, BRS saw more growth than any other UK airport that RYR serves (10x extra weekly departures per week).
During summer 18 (beginning of April to the end of Oct), RYR will have operated 72x more departures than the same period in 2017. This puts BRS third place along with LTN and LPL in rate of growth behind MAN and EDI which received 1422x and 892x extra flights this summer respectively. New routes this summer were CGN and SNN, with ZAD being dropped.
In winter 18/19 there will be an extra based aircraft over last year (4x based this winter which is the same as summer 18), 14x extra weekly flights over last winter, with five new routes to NOC, VLC, LIG, SVQ and SOF meaning an even bigger growth than last year!
All in all, RYR are steadily building at BRS and it will be interesting to see what Summer 19 has in store.
