Ryanair continues to grow strongly in Germany, creating competition amongst German airports, which is good for consumers, driving down the cost of flying and offering more choice. There is huge potential for more Ryanair low fare routes to be added across our German network, and we would encourage our partners in Cologne Airport to work with us so that we can add even more new routes, while boosting tourism and job creation in the North Rhine-Westphalia region in the years to come.”
