10 Mar 2015 by GrahamSmith

Ryanair will launch seven new routes from Cologne next winter as part of plans to double its traffic at the airport.

The budget carrier will introduce a four-times daily service to Berlin and new services to Copenhagen (daily), Gran Canaria (once weekly), Milan (twice daily), Porto (four times weekly), Valencia (thrice weekly) and Warsaw (daily).

Ryanair said it will also operate 17 weekly flights to London Stansted, four to Palma, a twice-daily service to Rome Ciampino and a thrice-weekly service to Tenerife.

In total, it will operate 17 routes and 129 weekly flights to/from Cologne in winter 2015/16.

The airline will also base three aircraft at the airport, up from one currently.

Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely said: "Ryanair is pleased to launch its Cologne Winter 2015/16 schedule, with seven new routes, including a new four times daily route to Berlin and 17 routes in total, which will deliver two million annual customers and support 2,000 local jobs...

"Germany is a significant growth market for Ryanair and we will continue to connect key German cities with Europe's major centres of business, with new Cologne routes to Berlin, Copenhagen, Milan and Warsaw, and extra flights to and from London and Rome."

Last week, Ryanair announced it will open a base at Berlin Schonefeld airport on October 27 (see news, March 6).
