Ryanair transatlantic plan 'still four or five years away'

O’Leary says plan still speculative though there have been talks with US airports

 

Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary said that any plan to start a transatlantic service is four to five years away.

Speaking to reporters in Dublin, he said the plan is still speculative though there have been talks with airports about starting such a service.

Mr O’Leary said any plan depends on getting getting planes at the right price.

Separately, he said there's "not a chance" of teaming with the Government for a joint sale of their stakes in Aer Lingus.
