Ryanair ‘not interested’ in Eurolot routes

Michael O’Leary, the CEO of Irish budget airline Ryanair, has said that the routes dropped by Eurolot are “not a huge opportunity” for the airline.

The comment comes as Eurolot, a subsidiary of LOT Polish Airlines, announced last week that from 1 April it will stop flying its regular scheduled routes.

“The big opportunity for Ryanair will be to continue to grow our domestic routes within Poland,” O’Leary said.

Earlier, it was mooted that the budget carrier would be able to take over the routes left behind by Eurolot.

Adrian Furgalski from the TOR transport and infrastucture advisory commented that “Ryanair will surely take over the majority of Eurolot’s routes, as [the airline] has the fleet and the money to do this”.

Eurolot is a majority state-controlled airline which operates domestic and international routes. Most of the the carrier’s aircraft are expected to be transferred to LOT Polish Airlines.
