Ryanair expands Luton as new UK hub

Ryanair has announced a major expansion at London (Luton). Ryanair have been flying from Luton since 1986, and will from 19 January 2005, add 9 new routes from London (Luton).

The new routes include Girona, Reus, Dinard, Murcia, Nimes, Rome (Ciampino), Venice (Treviso), Stockholm (Vasteras) and Esbjerg.

Perhaps this could be the beginning of a shift away from London (Stansted) as the favourite airport for low-cost flying in Europe. While Stansted is perfectly capable of taking the capacity of budget airlines, it is a frequent complaint that it is too expensive to travel there by public transport, with flights often costing less than a train ticket from London.
