As UK travel restrictions continue to ease, many Britons will be eager to spend time abroad this winter before the beginning of the new year. Known for being one of Britain’s most popular airlines, Ryanair has today launched their Black Friday sales for 2021.

Buy one get one free means you can buy a flight for a loved one and travel for free with them, or vice versa.

To claim the offer, all Ryanair customers need to do is visit the airline’s website, Ryanair.com.

The deal will be live on the website from 2pm today, November 25, until midnight on Friday, November 26.

This leaves customers with little time to claim the offer and avoid missing out.


Dara Brady, Ryanair’s Director of Marketing, said: “Black Friday has come early at Ryanair as we unveil our amazing ‘Buy One Get One Free’ offer, with one million seats available for travel across 1,000 routes from December 1, 2021, to February 18, 2022.

“Customers can book a well-deserved city break or a long overdue holiday and bring a plus one completely free – the ultimate Black Friday bargain.

“We’ve no doubt that this amazing offer will be snapped up quickly, especially with Christmas in near sight, so we encourage customers to act fast and visit the Ryanair.com website before midnight Friday, November 26, to avail of this brilliant Black Friday offer.”

But with Black Friday approaching, Ryanair is not the only airline offering discounted prices this week.

Customers can either claim £200 or £100 off a holiday package deal, depending on how much they are willing to spend.

To save up to £200 on holidays, Britons must spend a minimum of £2,000.

Meanwhile, to save £100 on holidays, holidaymakers must spend a minimum of £700.

To claim both deals, customers should use the code BLACKFRIDAY at the checkout.

Key travel tip on which two rows to always book on Ryanair if you want extra legroom

Holidaymakers looking for that extra bit of legroom are in luck as Ryanair have revealed which seats you should always choose for that bit of extra space.

Many find the plane to be a cramped space, especially if you are stuck in the air for a number of hours – but that doesn’t have to be a problem anymore.

The airline says in their advice that for that extra bit of leg room people should always book rows 16 and 17.

Ryanair explain on their website: “If you’re blessed with long legs, or you just want as much space as possible to sprawl out during a flight, treat yourself to one of the roomier seats in rows 16 and 17. Not only can you look forward to extra legroom, but as soon as you reserve a seat, you’re free to check-in up to 60 days before take-off.”

Ryanair is offering flights to dozens of European destinations from July 19th.

And that’s not the only advice they’ve given, if you want to eat or drink quickly, row 33 or rows 1 and 2 will give you a head start on the rest of the plane.

Ryanair boss gives money-saving tip as flights set to get more expensive next summer

Following the news that airfares are set to rise next summer due to increased levels of demand, the CEO of Ryanair has urged customers to book their flights as early as possible.

During a recent interview with The Times, O’Leary said that while confidence is returning in the aviation sector and passenger numbers are increasing, this will have a knock-on effect in terms of pricing as demand soars.

The Ryanair boss has said that a rise in demand for holidays would coincide with fewer flights, which would lead to rising prices for consumers next summer.

O’Leary believes that this increase won’t just be for flights, but also for hotels.

O’Leary said: “I think there will be a dramatic recovery in holiday tourism within Europe next year. And the reason why I think prices will be dramatically higher is that there’s less capacity.”

Speaking with Newstalk, the CEO of Ryanair, Eddie Wilson, elaborated on O’Leary’s recent comments and discussed the future of the low-cost airline and the industry at large.

Mr Wilson said: “European-wise, when Michael was talking about that, what you can see is the pressures that are going to come on pricing next year, they’re going to come from a number of fronts. Long haul travel isn’t going to return in the way that it did previously, so people who previously went on holidays to Florida or southeast Asia are going to holiday in Europe next year.

“There are less airlines, there are less airline seats around, so generally speaking, in economic terms, if there’s less of something then prices generally rise. I think you’ll see this flowing through into hotels and into the sort of tourist hotspots as well. There’ll be a lot of pent-up demand for next summer, and that will feed into higher prices.”

Last month, Ryanair had 11 million passengers which represents an increase of 2m from July and double what it carried in June.

While there has been an upward trend in customers, the numbers still aren’t what they were before the pandemic.

However, Mr Wilson has said that people can save money by booking early and if the government do intervene to make Ireland more attractive for airlines, prices could fall.

Wilson added: “On a European wide basis, it’s going to be about 20% less. Now, Ireland, in terms of its connectivity because we’re an island, we depend on air travel and if we can actually up supply here, that would mitigate against some of the price pressure. The advice I’d give people and consumers is to book early and for the government, put those incentives in to ensure that the largest share of Ryanair’s capacity goes into Ireland. That generally will push prices down.”

Ryanair boss slams ‘monstrously stupid’ travel restrictions

Virgin Australia’s chief executive, Jayne Hrdlicka, has said that the airline expects to be flying to some overseas destinations by Christmas as the country’s vaccine rollout speeds up. 

She said: “We get the domestic borders open and we test and learn with international borders.

“I don’t know what we are waiting for – if we’re 75 per cent vaccinated, we should be getting Australia open and allowing loved ones to reconnect, allowing Australians to get back to a way of life that we have cherished for a long time and worked hard to earn the right for.”

Ms Hrdlicka emphasised that vaccination was Australia’s route out of severe restrictions. 

“Vaccination is our way back to the things we love and the people we miss, and most importantly, it’s the only way we can protect the lives and livelihoods of all Australians.

“We are all in this together and the sooner we are vaccinated to the thresholds required by government, the sooner we can return to a quality way of life that includes travelling freely within our own country and abroad,” she added.

The government has hinted that travel restrictions will ease when 80 per cent of the population are fully vaccinated. So far this figure is 34.4 per cent.

Ryanair to cease operations in Northern Ireland | News

Ryanair has confirmed it will end operations at both airports in Belfast.

The low-cost carrier will cease flights from Belfast City Airport in September and from Belfast International Airport in October.

Ryanair blamed the cost of operating at the airports as well as a UK government “refusal to suspend or reduce” air passenger duty (APD).

Belfast International Airport said it was disappointed but had anticipated the move and was engaging with other airlines to replace the routes.

The airline said the aircraft it used on routes to and from Belfast would be “reallocated to lower-cost airports elsewhere in the UK and Europe for the winter schedule, which starts in November”.

A spokesperson for Belfast International said: “It is disappointing that Ryanair has now decided to withdraw operations from the entire Northern Ireland market at the end of October, having variously had a presence in all three local airports in recent years.

“It has been a difficult period for aviation and a time when consumers need some stability and faith in the Northern Ireland air transport network.”

Ryanair currently offers routes from Belfast International Airport to Alicante, Malaga, Krakow, Warsaw, Gdansk and Milan.

It only recommenced flights at Belfast City Airport in May after an absence of 11 years.

The airline has been operating flights to and from eight destinations in mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and Italy.

Ryanair signs Greek tourism partnership | News

Ryanair has signed a partnership with the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) in a bid to boost the hospitality recovery in the country.

The low-cost carrier and the GNTO will partner in a joint communications campaign with the aim of strengthening the positioning of the Hellenic destination as a tourist hub in the British, German and Italian markets.

The campaign – ‘All you want is Greece’ – will promote the Greek Islands as a must destination for a summer getaway through Ryanair’s owned channels as well as external digital platforms.

Ryanair director of marketing, Dara Brady, said: “We are delighted to partner with the GNTO and work together to rebuild Greece’s leading tourism industry.

“We have significantly increased connectivity to/from the Greek Islands with new routes and additional frequencies from all across Europe.

“This partnership will promote the wonders of this beautiful region and highlight each of Ryanair’s routes to the Islands, which have proven to be a clear favourite among our customers.

“Europeans can now enjoy a well-deserved sun break travelling on the lowest fares to the likes of Mykonos, Santorini, Chania, Kos and Rhodes.”

Famous for their amazing beaches, clear-blue waters, incredible sunsets, ancient temples and mouth-watering food – the campaign is sure to attract many holidaymakers eager to enjoy a long-awaited sun break.

Travel news: Ryanair will impose the use of face masks after restrictions ease | Travel News | Travel

“At present there are no changes to easyJet’s onboard mask policy and we will continue to keep this under review.

“We continue to be guided by our inhouse medical adviser and a number of key industry governing bodies that airlines follow including the WHO, Icao, Easa, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and public health authorities across Europe, and at present their guidance around the wearing of masks onboard remains unchanged,” easyJet explained.

Social distance on board a plane is not ensured as an empty seat is not kept between passengers.

Some train operators have also said to “support” travellers who continue wearing face masks after July 19.

Ryanair launches fresh attack on government Covid-19 restrictions | News

Ryanair has issued a new plea for the reopening of UK borders as the threat from Covid-19 recedes.

Michael O’Leary, chief executive of the low-cost carrier, criticised a “mismanagement” of the pandemic and reopening of the economy by prime minister, Boris Johnson.

He said: “The Covid-19 travel policy is a shambles.

“The green list is non-existent because countries such as Malta and Portugal, with lower Covid-19 case numbers than the UK and rapidly rising vaccination rates, remain on amber.

“Meanwhile, UK citizens almost 80 per cent of whom will be vaccinated by the end of June, continue to face Covid-19 restrictions on travel to and from the European Union, despite the fact that the majority of the European Union citizens will also be vaccinated by the end of June.”

O’Leary raised particular concern over the removal of Portugal from the green list earlier this month, effectively banning outbound travel.

He continued: “UK tourism and aviation needs a pragmatic travel policy, which permits vaccinated UK and EU citizens to travel between the UK and the EU without the need for quarantine or negative PCR tests.

“This will at least allow the UK tourism industry to plan for what is left of the summer season and get hundreds of thousands of people back to work.

“It is time for Boris Johnson to end his gross mismanagement of Covid-19 and the recovery from Covid-19, and take advantage of the successful vaccine programme to allow the restoration of free movement of vaccinated UK citizens and their families to and from the EU, where Covid-19 case rates are lower than the UK and vaccination rates are rising rapidly.”

Travel news latest: BA and Ryanair investigated over refunds

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has relaxed its travel recommendations for 111 countries and territories, but not the UK.

A further 50 countries have been downgraded to Levels 1 and 2 – including Singapore, Iceland, Israel and South Korea.

The UK, meanwhile, remains at Level 4.

Ryanair calls for wider reopening of European travel | News

Ryanair has called on minister for transport, Grant Shapps, to open up international travel from all EU countries.

The low-cost carrier said the move could come as soon as the next revision of the green list of safe countries expected later this week.

Ryanair also urged Shapps to abolish travel restrictions for everyone that has been fully vaccinated and to scrap the current requirement to present a negative PCR test when coming back from EU green countries.

Michael O’Leary, chief executive of Ryanair, said: “The highly successful UK vaccine rollout has already enabled hundreds and thousands of British families to book their flights to Portugal this summer, and today we call on minister Shapps to include all EU countries in the next revision of the green list so UK holidaymakers can travel restriction-free to the beaches of Spain, Greece and Italy – all of whom have opened their doors to British visitors this summer.”

European holiday hotspots like Spain, Greece and Italy have already opened their doors to UK tourists – as UK adult vaccinations hit 75 per cent and with the EU on track to hit the 70 per cent target by the end of June, infections are dropping and restriction-free travel within Europe should be allowed this summer, Ryanair argued.

Having added Portugal to its travel green list in May, UK families have been flying in their droves to Lisbon, the Algarve and Porto.

Despite the lack of clarity around the amber list, hundreds of thousands of UK holidaymakers have already booked to sunshine favourites Spain, Italy and the Greek islands for June, July and August.

O’Leary added: “The UK government must scrap the nonsensical requirement of PCR tests for those returning from low-risk (green) countries.

“There is no point in setting up a traffic light system if ‘green’ still requires additional measures that significantly add to the cost of a family trip.

“There is no justification for the UK government to delay the removal of all travel restrictions for those who have been fully vaccinated when research from Public Health England has demonstrated that two doses of the Covid-19 vaccines are highly effective against the Indian variant.”
