The low-cost airline Ryanair offers flights tickets for only £5 in an attempt to attract back customers following a week of canceling hundreds of flights due to a shortage of pilots.
The Irish airline is offering ONE MILLION tickets for the months from October 2017 through February 2018, which have been reduced to only £9.99 one-direction. But some tickets are even cheaper. Next week from Stansted Airport in London to Grenoble in southern France, is available for £5 on the company website.
Other tickets at the price of £5 are from Stansted to Lorient in northwestern France. For £7.99 one-way you can find flights from the UK to destinations like Aalborg in Denmark, Strasbourg in France and Gdansk in Poland.
At a slightly higher price of £9.99 you can find more familiar destinations such Barcelona, Berlin, and Bologna.
The low price means Ryanair is assimilating the £13 cost of Air Passenger Duty on each flight as it battles to recoup its customers by putting powerful pressure on low-cost rivals.
A pilot rostering error led to the company canceling up to 50 flights a day for 6 weeks last week.
The group’s chief executive Michael O’Leary admitted he had “messed up,” but has so far been able to resolve the cancellation crisis with pilots.
