Ryanair About Ryanair

Ryanair is a low-cost airline with headquarters in Dublin Airport which started its operation as a small Irish airline in 1985 by the Ryan family. Its first route was Waterford – London. In 1986, Ryanair added a second route and by 1995 Rynair had been carrying 2.25 million passengers to numerous destinations. Revenues in 1998 reached 231 million euro. In May 2020, the fleet consisted of 275 Boeing 737-800s with an average age of 11.4 years. Together with airlines such as easyJet or Vueling, Ryanair is a member of the European Low Fares Airline Association, which represents the interests of low-cost airlines. With the exception of Morocco and Israel, the airline’s destinations are in Europe.

Ryanair is targeting the transport of 200 million passengers by 2024. Ryanair prefers to fly to airports in the EU because negotiations between companies and an airport are easier in this area. An expensive airport is only approached when the occupancy rate is expected to be high.

The airline is not a member of an aviation alliance, nor is there a frequent flyer program. The low-cost airline logo consists of a yellow harp and white RYANAIR lettering to the right of it, both on a dark blue background. The media world was attracted by the suggestions of Michael O’Leary, the chairman of the Low Cost Airline, to introduce toilet use fees and standing room. Ryanair can boast that it is one of the most punctual airlines in Europe and has held the safety record since the company was founded. To be able to offer cheap flights for the masses is one of the merits of the low cost airline.

Lauda, Buzz, Ryanair UK, Malta Air are subsidiaries.

When booking online, these start at 15 euros for 15 kg and 25 euros for 20 kg, but vary depending on the season and flight, so you should always get the appropriate price information on the website.

Ryanair Food & Beverage

Economy Class

Ryanair is known for implementing the concept of a low-cost airline more consistently than almost any other competitor. Accordingly, on-board catering is subject to a surcharge. A bottle of mineral water, like coffee or tea, costs around three euros, soft drinks are available for two euros. Beer, wine and spirits are charged at around five euros. A sandwich or panini costs around five euros, while hot meals such as lasagne or sweet and sour chicken strips on rice cost around six euros. For dessert, for example, cakes or sweets are offered for two to three euros.

Passengers can rely on vegetarian options and child-friendly dishes, but there is no provision for pre-ordering special meals. Disposable dishes are always used for eating. On selected routes there is the option of ordering a non-vegetarian Irish breakfast up to 48 hours before departure, consisting of coffee, orange juice, sausages, bacon, bread, pudding, tomatoes and potato pancakes.

Premium Eco and general information on booking classes

In the meantime, Ryanair is advertising in addition to the Economy booking class with Plus, Flexi Plus and Family Plus. These higher-priced booking classes only offer advantages in terms of free baggage, rebooking, check-in and, under certain circumstances, legroom. They have no effect on the on-board catering. These Ryanair tariffs are therefore not comparable with the Premium Eco, Business or even First Class of classic airlines.

Things to know about on-board catering

The food and drink offered by Ryaniar is rated as acceptable by frequent flyers, but is comparatively expensive. The airline expressly allows its guests to consume provisions and non-alcoholic beverages they have brought with them during the flight. Those who rely on the on-board bistro can save money with combination offers. If you need special meals for medical, religious or other reasons, you should organize your own catering.

Ryanair Inflight Entertainment

Prior to the flight, Ryanair offers travelers priority boarding, by purchasing this service at the airport counter or online. On board, the company offers a wide choice of paid snacks (pizza, hot dog, cheeseburger, sandwiches …), but also hot or cold drinks, as well as an assortment of beers, wines and spirits, in sale at the bar. With the Family Extra option, young children benefit from a reduced rate. Among other things, the Business Plus option provides access to Premium seats.

Passengers can also read the in-flight magazine called the Ryanair Magazine.


Due to the short duration of Ryanair flights, the airline does not offer on-board entertainment or internet. Nevertheless, passengers can use electronic devices such as tablets, smartphones, e-readers and MP3 players in flight mode. Larger devices such as laptops may only be switched on once the seat belt sign has gone out.
