                                                                                                            On Sunday 15th July the Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary became the first offical passenger to arrive at the newly opened Warsaw Modlin Airport on a special flight from Dublin.  The flight was operated by EI-EVF Boeing 737-8AS/WL  c/n 40291 carrying new Polish titles 'Modlin Jest Ok!' translated 'Modlin is ok!'. The launch of new routes from Warsaw Modlin marks Ryanair's return to the Warsaw market after a gap of four years as the carrier perviously terminated routes to Warsaw Chopin in 2008 after a landing charges dispute. The Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary stated 'That's why Modlin provides such an opportunity. It's still not particularly cheap here but it has lower costs than at Chopin airport, and it gives us an important lower-cost gateway'.
