RYANAIR - APPROVAL FOR STANDING ONLY CABIN AREAS

UP TO 50 PASSENGERS PER FLIGHT CAN STAND FOR FARES OF

JUST £2 SUBJECT TO SUCCESS OF SAFETY PROVING FLIGHTS




Ryanair,  confirmed that it has received regulatory approval to operate a series of 100 trial flights in Apr & May during which 5 rows of seats will be removed to allow up to 50 passengers to stand for the duration of the 1 hour flights at fares of just £2 for each standing passenger. Ryanair will now remove the last five rows of seats from 2 of its 25 Stansted based aircraft in order to offer 50 standing only fares on a series of 100 test flights over the next 2 months to/from Stansted.

If this series of 100 proving flights with a standing only area is successful then Ryanair will seek regulatory approval to extend this standing only cabin area (and these £2 standing fares) to all of Ryanair’s 300 aircraft fleet. Ryanair’s £2 standing only fares go on sale today 2 Apr 2012 on www.ryanair.com.

Thanks as always to Robin at WoW for this update.
