What Will Ryanair Do If EasyJet-Go Goes Ahead?

Sun May 05, 2002 8:26 pm

Ryanair, the true low cost airline. The second biggest carrier of passengers in the United Kingdom.

If easyJet buy Go, then they will become Europes/The Worlds largest low cost carrier.

What will Ryanair do? Will they have a price offensive campaign by dropping all of their fares to extremely low levels?

The real reason I am asking, is I am about to book another Stansted-Dublin return for myself and seven friends. Shall I wait until the end of the week to see what happens? Current price is £66.80. Do you reckon this will drop?

Hello,

Ryanair won't have the slightest problem, simple as that! I mean the new airline will have 60% higher costs and over 50% higher fares. Anyway I bet 2 major competitors instead of 3 make it a whole lot easier.

Ryanair has nothing to worry about, it has always offered much lower fares than Ezy or Go, which is probably why it records much higher profits than either, as well as higher pax numbers.

Apart from this, Ezy and Go's costs are 30% higher than those of Ryanair.

They also have different strategies-Ezy/Go are mainly chasing after the business traveller (hence their mostly expensive fares), and are more keen to increase frequencies on existing services.

Ryanair is more interested in the leisure traveller, hence it's use of secondary/tertiary airports and rock-bottom prices.

Remember that GOEasy and Ryanair have different business plans-GOEasy cater more for the business passenger-lots of frequencies,going to primary airports etc while Ryanair cater slightly more for the leisure passenger and fly to more tertiary airports.They complement each other quite well despote the talk of being low cost rivals etc etc

GOEasy is probably today the main competitor of BIG like BA,AF and LH. They fly from main airports to main airports from all the main European business destinations.
Ryanair is more a market-maker. They start new service between secondary airports on routes that nobody before them thought to fly. And they get a lot of success and profit.
In these market situation I don't think the GO-Easyjet merger could afflict Ryanair.
