Ryanair launches €5 flight sale

Ryanair, fresh from being announced the World's Favourite Airline, today announced that it is to make one million seats available for just €5 on a number of European flight routes.

The announcement follows the publication by the International Air Transport Association of the 2008 traffic figures which identify Ryanair as the leading carrier with 57.6 million passengers.

Ryanair's Stephen McNamara said: "Ryanair today welcomes official confirmation by IATA that we are the World's Favourite Airline. We are celebrating by releasing one million €5 seats for travel on over 500 European destinations during September and October.


"These seats can be booked until midnight Thursday (July 24) and are sure to be snapped up fast so those looking for Europe's guaranteed lowest airfares in September and October should book them on today, before they sell out."

All applicable flights include taxes and charges, so passengers who choose to avoid discretionary fees by paying with Visa Electron, travel only with carry-on luggage and forego priority boarding can fly for the advertised fee.
