What’s The Catch? Ryanair Are Planning To Make All Their Flights FREE In The Next 5 Years!

And the reason why is genius.


It sounds like the stuff dreams are made of, but according to Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary free airfares on Ryanair could very well be a reality in the near future.

And while this latest news sounds like it’s almost too good to be true, O’Leary has confirmed his vision is more feasible than you might imagine.

Basically, free airfares means more people spending in the airport, which means bigger profit revenues for Ryanair, making it a concept that’s mutually beneficial both for the customer and the commercial airline.


“I have this vision that in the next five to ten years, the air fares on Ryanair will be free, in which case the flights will be full, and we will be making money out of sharing the airport revenues, of all the people who will be running through the airports, and getting a share of the shopping and retail revenues,” he said at the Airport Operators Association conference in London.

What’s more is, O’Leary seems pretty optimistic that he’ll be able to put his grand plan into action.

“I think it will happen,” he said. “It just won’t happen at Heathrow or those big hub airports. But most of the other airports who are looking for big traffic growth, that process is already starting to happen, lowering airport fees and some of the charges.”
