The route is just one of more than 1,000 available in the offer, valid for travel on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in April and May, with 100,000 seats across Ryanair’s European network up  for grabs.

Holidaymakers have until before midnight on Monday, March 25 to take advantage of the low-cost, “all in” fares, which include all non-optional taxes, charges and fees.

To secure the sale fare of £12.99, Ryanair recommends that passengers travel with carry-on luggage only and decline the airline’s priority boarding service.

“Only Ryanair sells Europe’s lowest fares with no fuel surcharges guaranteed, across over 1,500 routes, connecting 180 destinations, while delivering Europe’s No 1 customer service, with the most on-time flights, fewest cancellations and least mishandled bags,” said Ryanair’s Robin Kiely.

“These seats are only available until midnight Monday and at these mad prices are sure to be snapped up fast, so we urge passengers to book them on ryanair.com before they sell out.”

Ryanair has also recently announced that it is opening its first bases outside of the EU in Morocco in 2013.

The airline’s 56th and 57th bases will be located in Fez and Marrakech respectively, and the budget carrier also confirmed that it will be adding two new Moroccan airports, at Essaouira and Rabat, to its schedule.

A total of 15 routes will operate from Fez, including new routes to Lille, Nantes, Nimes and St Etienne.

A total of 22 routes will operate from Marrakech, including seven new routes to Baden, Bergerac, Cuneo (Italy), Dole (France), Munich, Paris and Tours.

Two routes will run to Brussels and Marseille from Essaouira, while three routes to Brussels, Paris and Marseille will operate from Rabat.

The changes come as Ryanair expands its operations in Morocco to 60 routes and eight airports, which is expected to deliver 2.5m passengers each year.
