Ryan Air to cease service between Milan and Rome

by amit.uniyal 21. January 2014 09:59

Ryan Air is a tough player. The low cost budget carrier of Ireland is one that does not concede defeat easily. However, the airline admitted to one very recently. Shocking and bizarre as it seems, the airline, which offers low cost flights to over 170 destinations across Europe, did actually bow down to speed!

The airline’s business philosophy is to offer no frills service between different European cities that helps it keep costs low and pass on the benefits in terms of affordable ticket prices to its customers. Like any of its service, the airline flies between Milan and Rome. It seems that it accepted a speed challenge with a train operating service on the same route. On an average, it takes about one hour and six minutes to fly between the city pair. Ryan Air has always believed in the viability of this route and hence has operated flights. However, it was in for a rude shock when two high-speed rail firms made it realize otherwise. At present, it connects Milan Orio al Serio Airport with Rome Ciampino Airport and it has decided to terminate this service from the end of March this year.

The high-speed train journey takes a little over three hours and fifteen minutes. Considering the fact that the time taken, distance covered, and prices offered by these trains are a better option for the passengers to commute than book air tickets, it has taken a back seat. Both the trains provide a fast and affordable mode of plying between the two cities, giving passengers yet another avenue to reach their destination at lowest possible rates.
