Ryan Air, the popular U.K. low cost airline, has opened a new base in El Prat, Barcelona, Spain.  Ryan Air will operate more than 400 weekly low fare flights to and from Barcelona and are investing over $550 million into the project.

El Prat Airport saw a decline of three million passengers last year.  The move by Ryan Air is expected to increase passenger numbers by over 2.5 million across twenty three routes.

A total of 2,500 local jobs will also be created and an additional 400 jobs within Ryan Air for pilots, cabin crew and engineers.

Michael O’Leary, Ryan Air’s Chief Executive, issued a formal statement saying, “Ryanair is pleased to officially open its 42nd base at Barcelona El Prat with 23 new routes and 2.5m passengers per annum which will allow El Prat airport to tap into the low fares market, which is the only market which continues to grow, thanks to Ryanair’s low fares, for the first time.  Barcelona consumers and visitors can beat the recession by choosing Ryanair’s low fares on 23 exciting routes from El Prat to destinations all over Europe including France, Italy and Germany among others.”
