Stansted Airport will boast more access to Germany later this year when Ryanair launches a new service from its London base.
The low-fares airline will offer a new route from London Stansted to Zweibrucken, in western Germany close to the country’s border with France, from October 28th.
Zweibrucken is reportedly known as Germany’s ‘city of roses and horses’.
Bridget Dowling of Ryanair said: "Zweibrucken boasts one of Germany’s biggest stud farms and horse enthusiasts can enjoy stallion parades followed by a trip down the ‘Rosenweg’ rose-filled promenade."
The airline now serves 103 routes from Stansted, making the airport by far Ryanair’s largest base.
More than five million travellers used Ryanair’s services in May this year, representing a 22 per cent increase on 2007 and bringing the airline’s 12-month passenger figures to more than 52 million.
