Ryanair today said it would open its 50th base (and first in Cyprus) at Paphos, Cyprus's third largest city in April of this year.

The Irish airline said it will base two aircraft there with 14 routes which will initially deliver over 600,000 passengers a year and sustain over 600 jobs with over 80 weekly flights as Ryanair invests over $140 million at the airport.

Ryanair's Paphos routes will begin when the base opens in April 2012.

In Paphos today, Ryanair's Michael Cawley said: "Ryanair is delighted to announce Paphos as our 50th base with 14 routes beginning in April next which go on sale on tomorrow.

Cypriot consumers/visitors can now beat the recession and escape Cyprus Airways high fares by switching to Ryanair's lowest fares and our no fuel surcharge guarantee to 14 exciting destinations all over Europe including Germany, Italy and Sweden among others. Ryanair's 600,000 passengers p.a. will sustain up to 600 jobs in Paphos."

Alfred Van der Meer, Hermes Airport Group Chief Executive, said: "This is a great vote of confidence in the potential of both the airport and our region from Europe's largest airline. Today's announcement will help create much needed jobs and tourism and shows that Ryanair shares our confidence in the tremendous opportunity for strong market growth at the airport."
