Watch out Romania, Ryanair’s coming
Ryanair is planning to add up to five new operating bases in Romania in a bid to challenge the dominance of other carriers and as part of its push eastwards that has been seen recently with its move into Israel.
At present Ryanair only flies to Bucharest, but it could add many based aircraft at the country’s airports, offering links across Europe.
This is a clear challenge to Wizz Air, Blue Air and Tarom, who dominate air services in Romania.
Michael O’Leary said in a press conference in Romania that he anticipates growing to a similar level to that which Ryanair has achieved in Poland, with four bases.
