islands canary closing its all bases possibly ryanair

Ryanair possibly closing all its bases in the Canary Islands
#1
According to Canariasenred Ryanair will be cutting down flights and possibly closing all its bases in the Canary Islands.

Translated:

The airline "Low Cost" Ryanair studies to close all its bases in the Canary Islands, this company aims to promote other tourist destinations such as Greece or Turkey, potential rivals of the Canary Islands.
The controversial airline will slow the growth of its traffic in Spain by up to 3.5% in 2019. Its general director of Marketing, Kenny Jacobs, confirms all the news and expects the company to cut capacity and possibly close the bases of Canary Islands for commercial reasons.

The company "Low Cost" Ryanair has already closed its bases in Bremen (Germany) and Eindhoven (Holland) and has reduced its capacity in other German cities such as Frankfurt and Düsseldorf.
Ryanair that will close its fiscal year of 2018 in March with 49.5 million passengers transported in Spain (10.7% more), in its forecasts for Spain expects to grow at a slower pace, but as far as Europe is concerned They expect to raise 8% of traffic.

The airline has plans for the year 2019, reinforcing its presence in France, opening bases in Toulouse, Marseille and Bordeaux; also wants to open bases in the countries of the East and Italy, as well as take advantage of the possibilities that open in Greece and Turkey thanks to a strong growth of the tourism sector in both markets.

Thomas Cook and TUI will probably follow: 

Translated from Canariasenred:

International tour operators are starting to turn their back on the Canary Islands, companies in the sector are looking for alternatives to the high prices of hotels on the islands. Thomas Cookand TUI have revealed that they are looking for alternatives to the Canary Islands and have demanded that the prices of hotel beds be moderated, while airlines such as Ryanair have already withdrawn two of their aircraft on the islands.

The tour operators are starting to bet on other cheaper tourist destinations, since according to these companies the margins that are left are very scarce, for its part Thomas Cook has already announced that there will be movements in the sector on the downside for the Canary Islands, destinations such as Turkey , Egypt and Tunisia already have a strong demand, are quite cheap and have much wider margins.

Most people will choose a cheap destination for their annual holiday. It makes sense, especially if there's a few children involved (school holidays prices). The sun and temperature is the same in the summer months all over the Europe / Northern Africa. Majority (deal hunting) tourists also don't even need to be next to the clean ocean (the main reason for us), they're happy with the swimming pool at the resort.

A political announcement intended to ensure they continue to get very nice subsidies from the Canary government.

Ryanair already apologised for insulting the Canary Islands and TUI have just embarked on major hotel acquisitions and re-furbishments.

Sounds like fake news.

Didn't even know they had a base. Which island has the base? Closing the base doesn't mean cutting flights. It just means the planes and crew won't be parked in the Canary islands. 

Not surprising they've cut flights in Germany. They just bought Lauda air which I think has a fair bit of traffic going to/from Germany

 I remember it well John having to curtail our stay by a few days to get the last Fr flight to Lpl. I'm still wondering where the last 10 years have gone.

Ryanair has 3 bases on the Canary Islands since summer 2011 with 2 aircrafts each based at Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife.
