COPENHAGEN: Ryanair is enjoying generous rebates and bonuses as it sets up shop at Copenhagen Airport. The exact amount is a secret, but recent reports say the breaks run well into millions of kroner. “The details of our start-up discounts is a matter between us and the airline,” airport press officer Søren Hedegaard told Avisen.
A look at those guidelines revealed that in their first year of operation, a company can be given a 90 percent rebate on its cost-per-passenger and what amounts to a 100 percent discount on airplane fees. If Ryanair received discounts on just half of the one million passengers it expects to fly this year, that could add up to nearly 35 million kroner in savings.
