@FlightGlobal Congratulations to @Ryanair for winning the Decade of Airline Excellence Award for the Europe region sponsored by @cirium #airlineawards2020.
@jetairways2021 The new owners of Jet Airways plan to operate it as a full-service airline with a strong presence in the domestic market while connecting prominent European and West Asian cities with Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru.
@jonostrower Ryanair, in characteristic fashion, buys 75 more 737s in the depths of an industry recession. The company now has 210 total 737-8-200 (Max) on order. First arrives in spring. Michael O’Leary wants to have 25-30 in its fleet by next summer. Has 3 Max sims now for retraining.
@routesonline “The key message for 2021, is that we want to reach 100 destinations again.” TAP Air Portugal’s Arik De provides an update on the flag carrier’s network strategy and target markets for the future.
@simonasbartkus .@Ryanair is not planning to resume routes from Palanga to @DublinAirport, from Kaunas to Bologna, from Vilnius to Billund in summer 2021.
