Ryanair: 150 Million UK Passengers

Posted in: Airlines


Ryanair announced today that their tally of passengers flown in or out of the UK has hit 150,000,000. It took the airline over 20 years to reach this milestone, and to celebrate it, they’re giving away a quarter million fares for “zilch, nada, zip, f**k all.”

To which we say: terrifying and impressive, Ryanair. We’re in awe of the airline’s continued bravado, which befits an upstart boxer more than an entrenched and very successful airline. We wonder what sorts of attack dog qualities prospective pr hires have to demonstrate before being brought on board.

The free fares can be purchased through tomorrow evening (Thursday, July 12). Note: we did a spot check on one route and found no free fares over the next six weeks, which suggests to us that these fares are being snapped up quickly.
