Yesterday, Ryanair announced that they will be increasing the number of flights they operate between East Midlands Airport and Marseille and Menorca. They also have said that they will be expanding 17 of their existing 38 routes that are currently operated from the airport. This increase in flights might create an additional 460 jobs. Michael Cawley, deputy chief executive of Ryanair, said they have been flying to East Midlands for 10 years and have been very happy doing so.
Cawley also said they will be stationing an extra plane at the airport, which will automatically add 50 jobs, and they expect the possibility of an additional 410 jobs might be added on-site as the airline is expecting an additional 460,000 passengers that they are expecting as a result of the increased services. He said these additional positions will likely be in ground staff, retail, and other airport companies as a result of the additional passengers they will bring in.
