RYANAIR is to open up a base at Marseille and with two aircraft operate limited services on 13 routes. It has a target of almost one million passengers in the first 12 months. From November the Irish-based but UK-domiciled airline will connect Marseille to Charleroi, Dublin, Eindhoven, Fez, Hahn, Karlsruhe Baden, Marrakech, Oujda, Oslo, Prestwick, Porto, Rome and Stansted. The new operation is bound to shake up the French market totally dominated by Air France.ABTN has, where possible, used the popular name for each airport servedand not that on the press release. French passengers will have to learn that Hahn is 70 miles from Frankfurt, a route Air France does operate. Ryanair, never one to miss a publicity trick, has now accusedAir France of state aid. AF has retaliated to the effect that Ryanairspreads misinformation. Our photo shows ceo Michael O'Leary sitting this one out. A close inspection also shows a member of the cabin staff.
