Ryanair has appointed Uber lobbyist Cristian Samoilovich as its first head of public affairs.

Mr Samoilovich joins the airline from the taxi app, where he was managing European public policy.

He has previously worked for Boeing and Airbus, and will lead Ryanair’s public affairs engagements with EU institutions and European governments.

“These are exciting times for Ryanair with plans for extensive growth and I look forward to working closely with the EU and European governments to deliver even more choice,” Mr Samoilovich said.

Ryanair’s chief legal and regulatory officer, Juliusz Komorek, said Mr Samoilovich’s extensive experience and knowledge will be a key asset to Ryanair, as we continue to work with the EU to increase the competitiveness of the European air transport industry.
