Ryanair has unveiled new passenger products including the Leisure Plus fare, offering customers a discounted bundle of travel extras, including priority boarding, a reserved seat and a 20 kg bag, and an improved Business Plus service, with flight change flexibility extended to two days either side of the scheduled flight date as well as on the day of travel.
From today, Ryanair customers can choose between three types of fares. Ryanair Regular offers the guaranteed lowest fares, free 10 kg cabin bag plus a smaller second bag and randomly allocated seat.
Leisure Plus includes priority boarding, a free allocated seat and a 20 kg checked-in bag, while the upgraded Business Plus offers a fast-track security channel, priority boarding, a premium allocated seat, flexibility of two days each side of the booked date on ticket changes (as well as on the day of travel), a dedicated Business Plus desk and free airport check-in.
These enhanced services are part of Year 3 of Ryanair’s Always Getting Better programme. The carrier’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs explained, “Ryanair is pleased to launch Leisure Plus, offering leisure travellers, holidaymakers and city breakers a tailored bundle of discounted travel extras. We’ve also enhanced our popular Business Plus offering, ensuring an even better service for businesses of all sizes. Over 25% of Ryanair customers travel on business, saving time and money, while enjoying our industry-leading punctuality and the largest route network in Europe with even more business routes connecting Europe’s major cities, through additional flights and improved schedules, and double the number of fast-track airports.”
