Ryanair to launch pilot training centre in Poland

The Irish budget airline Ryanair is expected to launch one of its two planned European pilot training centres in Poland, the company told PAP.

Eddie Wilson, CEO of Ryanair DAC, said the southwestern city of Wroclaw is one of the several considered locations for the Polish investment.

He stated that the preferred location would be one with the best connections, inexpensive and close to the airport Ryanair flies from.

Wilson said that other cities, including southern Krakow, western Poznan and northern Gdansk, where Ryanair's operational bases are also located are taken into account.

According to him, southern Katowice and Warsaw Modlin are not considered the sites for the new investment, the latter being a relatively small base and the company has no plans to expand their operations there.
