Ryanair CEO has sights set on acquiring more airlines in the future following Laudamotion takeover

    Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said the carrier plans to acquire further airlines in the near future, following its total acquisition of Laudamotion (Reuters, 29-Jan-2019). Mr O’Leary said: “You’ll see in the next couple of years, I’d like to see Ryanair evolve as kind of a group of different airlines. We will have Ryanair based out of Ireland, you’ll have Laudamotion based out of Austria, you’ll have Ryanair Sun [Poland]… That will I think allow us in the next number of years to maybe add one or two other airlines. Now, nothing big but if there were some small scale opportunities that popped up like the Laudamotion opportunity then we could do it”.
