WKB has helped the Ryanair Group establish Ryanair Sun, the company's new business unit in Poland. Ryanair Sun launched its inaugural flight on April 26, 2018, flying from Poznan to Zakynthos, in Greece.

According to WKB, “the new charter airline has been launched to meet the growing Polish demand for air travel.” In its first year of operation, Ryanair Sun will offer flights to Greece, Italy, and Spain from airports in Warsaw, Katowice, Poznan, Krakow, Gdansk, and Rzeszow. The airline plans to extend its route network by adding Turkey and Albania in the future.

The support provided by WKB to Ryanair included comprehensive corporate advice on setting up the company, increasing the share capital, and developing corporate governance rules, as well as day-to-day corporate assistance. WKB lawyers also advised Ryanair on obtaining an operating license to conduct commercial airline operations.

In addition, WKB supported Ryanair in drawing up operational and technical documentation, developing the air carrier structure, obtaining special approvals and traffic rights, registering aircraft, and obtaining an Air Operator's Certificate and a Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization Certificate, as well as assisting during audits conducted at the air carrier’s headquarters.

WKB’s team included Partner Anna Wojciechowska and Senior Associates Krzysztof Wawrzyniak and Jadwiga Stryczynska.
