Ryanair to create 1,200 new jobs in Spain in 2015

CEO of Irish airline Ryanair, Michael O´Leary, landed in Madrid on Tuesday, 24th March, to discuss their plans to increase operations in Spain with the creation of roughly 1,200 new jobs in 2015.

According to Mr. O´Leary, the jobs will be created through the addition of 5 new aircraft to the Spanish fleet, which will generate 250 jobs directly. An increase of about 1 million in the number of passengers in Spain will create a further 1000 jobs directly and indirectly.

In order to do this, Ryanair has introduced five new routes from Madrid (Berlin, Bratislava, Bucharest, Copenhagen, and Vilnius) and has increased their frequency on 11 other flights, including Dublin, London and Warsaw. In total, Ryanair will have 37 journeys from Madrid in 2015.

Ryanair currently has 18% market share in Spain. The airline expects to carry 5.5 million passengers from Barajas airport in 2015 and 38 million passengers in Spain as a whole.
