Michael O’Leary, CEO of Ryanair, has revealed plans to ask Prime Minister Theresa May to open three new runways in London alone.
Dubbed as ‘Europe’s No.1 airline’, the company also revealed it is adding two new routes to Strasbourg and Faro.
Speaking more about the ‘post-Brexit’ initiative, Michael said, “We are pleased to launch our London summer 2017 schedule, which includes 2 new routes to Strasbourg and Faro, and more flights to Sofia and Nuremberg which deliver 23.6 million customers p.a. and support 18,000 jobs at London Stansted, London Gatwick and London Luton airports.
“Ryanair calls on the new UK government to be radical in its decision making on new runways to London instead of picking just one (Heathrow or Gatwick) and calls on Prime Minister Theresa May to approve 3 new runways – one each at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted.”
The CEO believes opening three runways will “finally resolve the runway capacity issue” for the next 50 years.
