Ryanair closes Frankfurt Airport base in Germany

Low-cost carrier Ryanair said it will stop serving Germany’s busiest airport at the end of March and close its base there

BERLIN-Budget airline Ryanair said on Friday that it plans to stop serving Germany’s busiest Frankfurt Airport at the end of March. And close its base there.

Ryanair said it is closing its Frankfurt base and reallocating its five aircraft to other airports, which “respond with lower airport fees to stimulate traffic recovery.”

The Irish-headquartered company stated that all crew members in Frankfurt “can obtain alternative positions in the Ryanair network” and passengers affected by the cancellation will receive notifications and refunds “in the coming days”.
