Ryanair will establish a new Warsaw-based charter airline in summer 2018 to serve the Polish leisure market.

The budget carrier says the carrier will be called “Ryanair Sun” and will initially have a fleet of five Boeing 737-800s.

Ryanair says the new charter airline will “deliver best-in-class charter services, at the lowest cost to Polish tour operators, and offer great value for customers flying to Poland’s favourite holiday destinations”.

Senior executives for Ryanair Sun are currently being recruited to “set up and grow this operation”, it adds.

A number of recruitment advertisements have been posted on the Ryanair website, including for the positions of chief commercial officer, chief financial officer and chief pilot.

Ryanair already serves the Polish market through its scheduled services and has a base at Warsaw Modlin airport.
