ryanair Flights

Information about ryanair

The airline was founded by Christopher Ryan, Liam Lonergan and Tony Ryan in late 1984 and commenced operations in July, 1985 when it flew a small 15-seater aircraft from Waterford in Ireland to Gatwick Airport in the UK. The company's initial aim was to break the hold that British Airways and Aer Lingus had on flights between London and Ireland at that time. The company surpassed those early goals and today it is the busiest international airline based on passenger numbers as well as the largest in Europe based on passengers carried. With Ryanair flights to countries all over Europe and North Africa, the airline looks stronger than ever. It has its headquarters in Swords, Dublin and its main operational hubs are at Dublin and at Stansted Airport in the UK.

In a bid to keep costs low in order to reduce fares, Ryanair often chooses to land at secondary European airports rather than main international airports. Many secondary airports like Weeze near Dusseldorf have fewer facilities but are still within easy reach of the intended destination. So successful has the airline been that Bratislava Airport is sometimes laughingly referred to as 'Bratislava Vienna.' Where a secondary airport isn't a viable option, Ryanair flights terminate at major airports. Some of these include., Rome-Fiumicino, London, Gatwick, Marseilles, Edinburgh and Lisbon. In-flight service is good but basic and passengers can expect:

  • Incredibly low fares
  • Wide choice of destinations
  • Basic in-flight refreshments and facilities
  • Friendly customer service

The airline demands low handling fees from the airports that it serves as well as input and help with advertising and marketing. This ensures that passengers enjoy the lowest possible prices on Ryanair flights right through the year. Its fleet of Boeings is one of the youngest, greenest and quietest in the sky and the average age of aircraft is 5.5 years. With some of the most exciting cities in Europe and North Africa to choose from, it's little wonder that this Irish carrier is the preferred choice for holidaymakers and business travellers who want no-fuss, affordable short haul flights. It's also the ideal choice if you're flying back to Ireland and flights to Ireland are available from major cities every day.
