On 25th July Ryanair held a Warsaw Modlin Airport press conference to celebrate it’s first week of operations at the new airport announcing it carried 12,000 passengers on eight routes on more than 70 flights. To celebrate the airline announced a seat sale from Warsaw Modlin with lead in fares 50% cheaper than it’s rival Wizzair.

At the press conference it’s rival Wizzair sent a representative to present the Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary a free ticket on any of it’s 20 routes from Warsaw Modlin as part of it’s Pink Day promotion as the press conference was underway.

As usual the Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary never let’s a good PR opportunity pass him by turning the Wizzair rep’s presence to his advantage as can been seen on the video!!!.

Ryanair operate Dublin to Warsaw Modlin three times weekly on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday increasing to five times weekly from September and to daily frequency effective 28th October.
