Ryanair (www.ryanair.com) has announced that they are to receive 10 new airplanes in the coming months. Michael O’Leary’s company predicts with these new planes (and their planned 50 new routes) that they will be creating 5,000 new jobs across Europe.
Head of communications Peter Sherrard said: “Ryanair’s $700m (€530.1m) investment will create 5,000 jobs across Europe as we expand our existing bases at Barcelona Girona, East Midlands, London Stansted and launch our second German base in Bremen”.
Not bad, not bad at all ! We here at eirjobs.com are big fans of Ryanair. Their presence in the Cork/Dublin route alone makes our lives that little bit easier. It’s great to see an Irish company leading the way in Europe. Ryanair does have many objectors, manly from customers who expect a lot more than what they paid for. Michael O’Leary’s is a shrewd businessman and has learned to cut costs and to change the industry as we know it. The guy also knows his way around the PR mind field too.
