FRANCE. The airline Ryanair will set up a permanent base at Paris-Beauvais airport, located at Tillé, near Beauvais (Picardy) on 3 December 2020 with two planes stationed (Boeing 737-8000). The Irish low-cost airline estimates the investment at $200m (€171.5m) and the number of jobs created at 2,300 (direct and indirect).

Ryanair will offer this winter thirty-two routes (105 weekly flights) covering thirteen European countries from this airport, called Paris-Beauvais, whereas the Picardy hub is about a hundred kilometres away and about two hours drive from the capital's city centre. It announces two new destinations : Paphos (Cyprus) and Manchester (United Kingdom) with two weekly flights each.

The company has been present on the tarmac of Paris-Beauvais airport since 1997 and in 2019 will have a traffic of 4 million passengers. "Our historic relationship is strengthened and is now taking on a new dimension with this operational base, its jobs and the development opportunities it will provide, especially in this very difficult phase for air transport," comments François Rubichon, Chairman of the Management Board of Paris Beauvais Airport.

This will be the fourth Irish base in France, along with those in Marseille, Bordeaux and Toulouse, all of which will open in 2019.
