TO SHUT BILLUND BASE ASWELL

Not decided yet though.

Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair on Friday announced the closure of its recently opened base in Copenhagen to avoid a strike by Danish unions, but said it would continue to fly from the airport.

The airline said in a press release that it will relocate its Copenhagen base to Kaunas, Lithuania on July 14th. This would make the unionsĺ planned strike on July 18th illegal, the airline wrote.

"John Dybart of the Danish unions this week claimed that 'Ryanair was bluffing' when we threatened to close the whole Copenhagen base. Perhaps now he will realise that the Danish economy and the Danish unions cannot succeed by forcing Danish jobs overseas," airline spokesman Eddie Wilson wrote in the press release.
Ryanair had previously warned that it will drop its Copenhagen base if the airline fails to reach an agreement with the unions, and following Wednesdayĺs short-lived and unfruitful meeting between the parties, the airline is now also threatening to end its operations at Billund Airport as well.

They will probably keep Billund open.
Same thing happened in Girona (dispute over airport charges); they simply pulled out 1/2 of the aircraft.
