Ryanair, new base at Warsaw-Modlin or just more flights?

It seems Ryanair are opening a base at the new Warsaw-Modlin Airport in Poland from October 2012. They will initially launch eight routes in July, with London-Stansted being the only UK route and use it as a destination airport. However in October several new routes across Europe will be launched with new services to Bristol, East Midlands, Glasgow-Prestwick, Liverpool and Manchester in the UK alone. The new routes are confirmed but is the Polish airport becoming a new base or just expanding as a destination airport? Eindhoven and Paris-Beauvais are the only new routes from Warsaw-Modlin that are not Ryanair bases but are instead large destination airports.

Warsaw Modlin will be opened in the summer as low cost airlines airport, 35 kilometres north of Warsaw...Warsaw Chopin is the main airport in Warsaw and will remain so.

Yes I know that, but will they actually base aircraft and crew etc. there from October as a number of new routes will start from then as well as the eight they will launch in July? Or will it be a large destination airport like Eindhoven or Krakow for example which don't have aircraft and crew based there, just visited by those based elswehere.

Small airport, newly constructed in remote area. Few facilities and pax have to wait outside to board aircraft! Modlin Bus is OK (book on line for cheaper fare) to central Warsaw. We also used train & bus shuttle, much cheaper, from Warsaw on the return, only about £5 for 2 people one way - hour trip. Mostly British using this new airport it seems.

It was like waiting for a bus - herded around like cattle. Very few seats in 'gate' prior to getting onto the tarmac. They may stop this procedure if the weather turns - who knows - quite mild for November last week when we were there.
