Travellers have until midnight tomorrow (Thursday, November 15) to book flights from £18, valid for travel on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in December.
The £18 Seat Sale includes all taxes, charges and fees, so passengers who travel with carry-on luggage only and decline the airline’s priority boarding service can secure the advertised £18 fare.
“Only Ryanair sells Europe’s lowest fares with no fuel surcharges. In addition to our lowest fares we also deliver Europe’s No 1 on-time performance across over 1,500 routes,” said Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara.
“These seats can only be booked until midnight Thursday, November 15 and are sure to be snapped up fast so we urge passengers to book them before they sell out.”
The budget airline recently announced its summer 2013 Manchester schedule, which includes five new routes to Corfu (Greece), Krakow (Poland), Lanzarote (Spain), Paphos (Cyprus) and Trapani (Italy), and growth on seven other routes.
Ryanair has also recently revealed that its new summer 2013 Liverpool schedule, will include two new routes to Lublin (Poland) and Zadar (Croatia), as well as the expansion of five existing routes.
Its summer 2013 schedule for the East Midlands will see Ryanair operate 38 routes, including two new routes to Marseille (France) and Menorca (Spain).
Ryanair’s CEO, Michael O’Leary, said that the airline’s expansion of operations in Liverpool, Manchester and the East Midlands reflect the fact that: “People no longer want to travel down to Heathrow, they want to fly from their local airport.”
Passengers could also be in the running for even cheaper flights from the airline if O’Leary realises his vision of standing-room only cabins on flights, with tickets sold at just £1 to European destinations.
“If you say to passengers it’s £25 for the seat and £1 for the standing cabin, I guarantee we will sell the standing cabin first. No question,” O’Leary said.
