AMSTERDAM — Irish budget airline Ryanair revealed on Wednesday it will launch a daily Eindhoven-Milan service in February 2005, increasing its number of destinations from the southern Dutch airport to four.

The airline has been operating from Eindhoven since April 2002 and 400,000 passengers have for far the Ryanair services offered from the airport, news agency ANP reported.

Attempts to offer services from the Maastricht Aachen Airport and Eelde in Groningen backfired. Ryanair no longer offers services from these airports.

In total, some 500,000 people have flown with Ryanair from the Netherlands and the airline expects that 100,000 passengers will make use of the Eindhoven-Milan Bergamo route every year.

The Eindhoven airport welcomed the announcement, estimating that it will process 800,000 travellers next year, compared with an estimated 670,000 this year. It is presently constructing a new terminal with a capacity to process 1.2 million passengers.

Meanwhile, Ryanair is offering a EUR 100,000 prize for the 100 millionth passenger to fly with the budget airline. It expects the magical figure will be reached later this year.
