Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – The Irish airline negotiates hard where it will build its operational base in Poland.
Wroclaw used to be the chosen one out of five Polish cities considered as locations for a base of Rynair low-cost airline. According to “PB” sources, however, Ryanair failed to reach agreement with the Polish investment agency PAIIZ.
“The project failed”, “PB” source said.
The airline representative believes negotiations are still going on.
“We are talking with several cities. Decision should be made soon. We want to negotiate best conditions possible in order to offer the lowest prices to our clients”, Tomasz Kulakowski, Ryanair marketing and sales director for Central and Eastern Europe said.
Only one month ago, Ryanair representatives would
unofficially admit that Wroclaw had won with Gdansk, Poznan, Lodz and Krakow. It
costs USD 200m to launch a base for 2-3 planes. A base is a guarantee that new
routes will be launched. In addition, the airline pays to the airport for
parking its planes. Each plane means 400 new jobs at the airport and around it.
