But according to a report from the air industry website checkin.dk
, the base closure is likely to have less of an impact than anticipated. To the contrary, Ryanair is reportedly eyeing the addition of nine new routes from Billund.
The new routes will fly to Alicante, Barcelona, Málaga, Palma de Mallorca, Malta, Budapest, Milan, Pisa and Rome. With the new destinations, Ryanair would make 41 weekly flights from Billund Airport.
A Ryanair spokesman confirmed the new destinations to check-in.dk but stressed that the airline’s schedule for summer 2016 had not yet been finalized.
An airport spokesman also confirmed that Billund is in talks with Ryanair.
“We have a dialogue with Ryanair but we don’t know yet exactly what they will end up flying. They have put some things into our booking system that aren’t on sale yet,” Jesper Klausholm said.
