Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary says Copenhagen will be its focal point in Scandinavia going forward, as environmental taxes on aircraft in Norway and Sweden are causing the airline to shift focus to Denmark.

The airline also plans to reopen its base in Copenhagen, as the government promised not to impose any such environmental taxes.

Ryanair faced labor issues in 2015 in Copenhagen, after refusing to sign the collective agreement with the local employees. The base was closed thereafter as the company lost the dispute.
