Ryanair launches eight new routes from the new Warsaw Modlin Airport

Ryanair’s CEO Michael O’Leary was on board the first passenger aircraft to land at Warsaw Modlin Airport. He then entertained the passengers in the check-in area to the tune of Frédéric Chopin music.

Elina Hakkarainen, Ryanair’s Sales and Marketing Executive, Nordics and Baltics, together with Oslo Rygge Airport celebrated the opening of the Warsaw Modlin route with cake, balloons and competition for all passengers at the terminal to win a mini break in Poland.

  • On 15 July, Ryanair officially launched its Warsaw Modlin (WMI) operations with scheduled flights starting the following day. The opening of the new low-cost airport serving the Polish capital marks Ryanair’s return to Warsaw. The airline withdrew all services in 2008 following a dispute over landing fees. At Warsaw Modlin, Ryanair will initially offer eight routes to a selection of European cities. The airline will compete against Wizz Air on four of the new routes.
