Ryanair offers planes to celebrities as private jets

Must read

Ryanair is offering its planes to celebrities, sports stars and other high flyers to offset the impact of the pandemic.

The budget airline is advertising a corporate jet service for groups of up to 60 people on board one of its Boeing 737 jets. 

A “value” option is also on offer, with larger groups of up to 189 people able to charter a journey of up to six hours.  

Marketing material boasts “fine dining options” labelled bronze, silver, and gold, business website The Currency reported.

Ryanair promises clients “guaranteed competitive pricing”.

“Large groups can avail of Boeing 737-800s through chartered services with a fleet of over 480 aircraft across 78 European bases,” Ryanair said in a letter to prospective clients. 

Ryanair has provided corporate jet services since 2016 with Champions League football teams, rugby teams and celebrities chartering its planes. 

However, Ryanair is now said to have ramped up its offering in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Travel restrictions have hit the aviation sector hard with the Irish carrier warning earlier this month that it could fly fewer than 1.25 million passengers in January compared with 10.8 million last year. This could fall to 500,000 in February and March.
