Forgive me if already posted - hopefully it will increase competition from Ireland/UK and reduce costs....
Ryanair is considering the opening of a new base in Portugal's capital Lisbon in a move that will set the airline further on a trajectory of establishing a presence in main airports as it attempts to continue its expansion.

The airline is currently in negotiations to establish the base at Portela Airport, which is already served by Aer Lingus. It is believed that ensuring it can have its aircraft turned around within 25 minutes is one of the key issues to be thrashed out between the airline and airport management.

Ryanair already has a base in Portugal, at Porto. It is understood that the carrier is hoping to have the Lisbon base established by next summer.

Following Ryanair's AGM last week, chief executive Michael O'Leary said that he's planning to open bases at most of the main European airports.

"Increasingly in the future there's going to be a spread of bigger airports, as well as secondary ones," he said.

And they adopted Faro as a hub earlier in the year. Many flights originate from Faro and pilots and other crew live locally.

Yep, don't really want to fly with them, but I would like more options, especially in winter.
