UK customers and visitors continue to choose Ryanair for the lowest fares and biggest route network, while enjoying our ongoing “Always Getting Better” customer experience improvements. After introducing allocated seating, a second free carry-on bag allowance, Family Extra and Business Plus services, and reducing our fees in Year 1, we’ve continued to roll out Year 2 of our AGB programme, which has included new native apps, reduced sports and airport fees and the launch of Ryanair Car Hire, which went live on Ryanair.com yesterday.

Our 103m customers can look forward to further improvements in the coming months, including our ground breaking personalised website, with exciting new digital features such as ‘hold the fare’ and real customer destination reviews, and improved menus, new cabin crew uniforms and new cabin interiors on board, with more to come in Year 3, as we continue to offer so much more than just lowest fares.

To celebrate the launch of our London summer 2016 schedule, and latest AGB improvements, we are releasing 100,000 seats for sale across our European network, which are available for booking until midnight Monday (7 Sep). Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
