Buckle up, travel fans – you’re in for an exciting week! 

Irish budget airline Ryanair has today announced some pretty sweet anniversary celebrations.

The airline marks the 30th anniversary of its first flight today, July 7th, and they’re marking the special day by launching a birthday seat sale, with 1 million seats on sale across its network for €19.85.


These special birthday seats are available for booking on the website from 00.01hrs on Wednesday, 8th July, until 24.00hrs on Sunday, 12th July.

Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs said:

“Wednesday, 8th July marks the 30th anniversary of Ryanair’s first flight from Waterford to Gatwick and to celebrate and thank our customers, we’re going back to 1985 – with one million seats on sale for just €19.85.

Ryanair revolutionised and democratised air travel in Europe and 30 years on, we have grown to become Europe’s biggest airline, carrying 100m people annually, between 30 countries, and saving European customers over €11bn every year by choosing Ryanair over high fare competitiors. In fact, this €19.85 sale will save customers a further €125m.

The one thing that hasn’t changed is our fares, as we continue to offer Europe’s lowest airfares, with the biggest route network and best service. These €19.85 fares go on sale on the website from Wednesday, with a million seats available across our entire network for travel between September and the end of January, which must be booked on the website by midnight Sunday (12th July).”

Now all we have to do is decide where we’re going. Meet you at the airport?
