Ryanair coming to Plovdiv at last

Postby MarkMc » Thu Mar 25, 2010 9:27 am

"Budget air carrier Ryanair is contemplating starting a direct link with Bulgaria's second-largest city, Plovdiv. In April 2010, company representatives are scheduled to arrive to make a final decision on the matter, according to Doichin Angelov, director of Plovdiv airport, according to a media statement on March 24 2010"

See http://www.sofiaecho.com/2010/03/24/878 ... th-plovdiv for the full details

Direct link between Plovdiv and where? Copenhagen? Frankfurt? Chattanooga? Accra? Or possibly even the centre of the earth, i.e. London? I read the article in the link, and the comments, and am still no wiser.

if you ever watched the bbc panorama show late last year on ryanair you would of seen that they drive a very hard bargain in landing fees (to the extent that Manchester airport which is owned by a large % by the local council) refused in the end to negotiate with them, and hence they pulled out of there (well nearly, they only fly to Dublin now!)

if it happens then good, but the question is why cannot they start a yearly service (and compete with wizzair) on the east side of the country?
they fly into constanta!!!!

The terms Ryanair and "good news" rarely go together.....as my oul Granny used to say...."be careful what you wish for". They are more trouble than they are worth.

hi,i do not know why people moan about them so much..
flown about 60-70 times with them.
only had a couple of problems.
just check the cost on ticket and taxes,add £6 or so for card,and say no to everything else.
flown loads of times for under a tenner and never paid more then £60 for a "return" to french/spanish border .

if i want a coffe/sandwhich or take luggage and soon the the loo he will charge,so what..

if he flew to varna return for £20 upwards i would have it ..

whats the problem.

if some one brings you 200 customers daily what is that worth so why should he pay a fortune.

i bet alot of people would love to have people as a customer in bulgaria and blighty,

BigAl, An electron card is just a debit card so you may find you already have one. :lol:

I believe that Electron is no longer free on ryanair, only Mastercard prepaid card. See http://www.ryanair.com/en/news/masterca ... ent-method

Aha! Big business is raising it's ugly head. Mr O'Grady has no doubt accepted an 'incentive' payment from Mastercard and will now sit back until one of the other credit/debit card providers offers him more - or rather a larger 'incentive' payment! :lol:
