bizarre! AENA announced last week that the airport had allocated slots for Ryanair to fly to Milan and Florence; but Ryanair seems to have other ideas! When they started LPL-Porto I assumed that was it for that part of the world, but . . . excellent news for people in N England/N Wales.
The bit about the stopover reported by VdG appears to be wrong; Ryanair is also starting flights LPL to Santander, but on different days. Ryanair's press release is at http://www.ryanair.com/site/EN/news.php ... -en-050406
AFAIK none of Ryanair's flights include stopovers or connections.
Actually getting to Oslo from Santiago is not a problem. It is easy via Stansted, the problem is getting back down. The first flight from Oslo (or really it is Torp) does not make the flight to Santiago from Stansted.... and most likely not the one from Liverpool either...
... but there is a good alternative via Madrid (starting this month) with http://www.norwegian.no/sw7127.asp . They fly direct from Madrid with low-cost prices. I will try their service when traveling north in May.
