- Ryanair grows to 16 based aircraft
- 17 new routes will take total to 210
- Poland now Ryanair’s seventh biggest market
Ryanair launched its biggest ever schedule from Poland for summer 2019 with two additional based aircraft at Warsaw Modlin and Krakow and 16 Polish-based aircraft in all.
There are 17 new routes, Modlin to Amman, Kiev, Lviv & Marseille, Bydgoszcz to Glasgow & Kiev, Gdansk to Barcelona & Kiev, Krakow to Amman, Bordeaux, Hamburg, Kiev & Lviv, Poznan to Cork, Kiev & Stockholm, Wroclaw to Kiev.
This means 210 routes in total, through Ryanair’s 13 Polish airports. Polish traffic will grow by a modest 4pc (half of the network average) to 5m customers (cited incorrectly as 12.5m elsewhere in the press release).
Ryanair says it hopes to double its traffic at Warsaw Modlin Airport from 3m to 6m customers pa. The written press release says: 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.
