Ryanair’s charter airline, Ryanair Sun, continues to grow strongly, carrying 700,000 customers in S 2018 season while currently negotiating a wider charter programme for S 2019 with Poland’s leading tour operators.
In Warsaw, Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:
“Ryanair is pleased to launch our biggest ever Poland S 2019 schedule with 210 routes, including 17 new routes to exciting destinations such as Barcelona, Bordeaux, Hamburg and Marseille. Our S 2019 schedule will deliver 12.5m customers p.a. to/from our 13 Polish airports, all at the lowest fares, as we continue to grow Polish routes, traffic, tourism and jobs.
Meanwhile, Ryanair hopes to double its traffic at Warsaw Modlin Airport from 3m to 6m customers p.a., which will create 2,250 new jobs in and around Modlin in the next five years, however the growth and development of Modlin is being unfairly and unlawfully blocked by the competing Chopin Airport and its owners, PPL. Ryanair has already lodged a complaint with the EU and has also made a written offer to co-finance or invest in any new infrastructural development at Modlin needed to allow it to grow and offer low fare choice and competition to high cost Warsaw Chopin airport.”
