Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – The Irish airline sold 1m tickets in Poland and is a real threat to other low-cost carriers.

Ryanair, the Irish low-cost carrier, said yesterday that it sold 1m tickets for its routes to and from Poland.

“We have offered only 1 route recently, today we have 25 routes”, Caroline Baldwin, deputy director for sales and marketing in Ryanair said.

The carrier started operations in Poland in March 2005. Today it offers thirteen routes to England, six to Ireland, three to Germany, two to Scotland and one to Sweden. Further routes will be announced this fall, possibly to Spain.

“We will be the only important low-cost carrier within a year”, Caroline Baldwin boasted.

In her opinion, within three years, there will be no local no-frills airline in Poland.

“Ryanairs wishful thinking has no chances for success because the Polish market is developing very fast. Moreover, Ryanair does not take care of its passengers not is it adjusted to the needs of the Polish market. It practically offers only routes to England and Ireland. SkyEurope is today the biggest carrier from Krakow and we are going to keep the position”, Eryk Klopotowski, SkyEurope spokesman said.

Centralwings, the low-cost airline owned by LOT, Poland’s flag carrier, which started operations in February 2005, has already crossed the level of 1m passengers. WizzAir has had 2.5m passengers already.
