Ryanair has issued a statement denying it is considering launching transatlantic flights
Earlier this week, it was reported the Irish carrier will offer services to the US for as little as £10 in the next four to five years.
“In the light of recent press coverage, the Board of Ryanair Holdings wishes to clarify that it has not considered or approved any transatlantic project and does not intend to do so,” the statement said.
In September last year, Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said it had a business plan “ready to roll” for transatlantic services in the next five to 10 years but lack of availability for long-haul aircraft would make it difficult.
Ryanair grew passenger traffic by 29 per cent last month compared to the previous year.
It flew 5.8 million passengers last month up from 4.5 million in February 2014. It also increased its load factor by 11 per cent last month.
