Ryanair turnaround #4: Boeing 737s EI-DAH & EI-EPA 30062011
Boeing 737-8AS c/n 33546/ln1269 EI-DAH of Ryanair after its pushback at Eindhoven airport in The Netherlands (EHEH) on 30 June 2011, with Ryanair Boeing 737-8AS c/n 34987/LN:3568 EI-EPA in the background just having started its take-off run. EI-DAH made its first flight on 7 January 2003 and entered Ryanair service on 22 January 2003. EI-EPA is one of the latest additions to the Ryanair fleet. The aircraft first flew on 3 March 2011 and is operated by Ryanair since 29 March 2011. Contrary to EasyJet, Ryanair deems Holland's main airport Schiphol Amsterdam too expensive, too large and too time consuming for the turnarounds, so it chose Eindhoven as its hub in The Netherlands. Even building a special terminal for budget carriers at Schiphol without air bridges could not persuade Ryanair. This is the fourth in a series of 5 about the turnaround of EI-DAH and its sister ship EI-EPA at Eindhoven. Collect them all!
