Ryanair’s O’Leary still keen on trans-Atlantic services

Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary has reiterated his desire to launch low-cost trans-Atlantic services (JOE.ie, 14-Jul-2011). Mr O’Leary said there are “huge opportunities” for LCC services across the Atlantic. He said he is prepared to invest in a fleet of 40 to 50 aircraft capable of operating the routes, but he said he is yet to find a suitable fleet. He dismissed the suggestion of Ryanair launching services to the Middle East from one of its European bases, saying “they don’t want low fares down there”.
