Low-cost airlines made a stunning appearance a few years ago to revolutionize how we travel by plane. They dropped the prices of plane tickets and jeopardized important travel companies that have seen their stability threatened. One of them is the Irish company Ryanair, which has managed to take over the European airspace, not without a certain dose of controversy.
The app to book flights and purchase plane tickets
This airline says that it offers the cheapest and lowest fares in Europe and all the latter can be found in its official application. It offers flights between airports of hundreds of cities on European soil, being in many cases secondary destinations that don't usually appear on the most important tourist routes. Therefore, they are a great advantage for anyone that wants to travel and discover new destinations.
From its application for iPhone and iPad, we can access the following functions:
- Flights: input the dates you want to fly, the city of origin and the destination, and allow the application to find the best offers.
- Manage My Booking: where you can look for information regarding your bookings on your iPhone.
- Timetables: access the flight schedules.
- News: discover the latest news about Ryanair.
But, why should I download the app if I can purchase the tickets on the Internet? Well, because you can control everything from this app: your boarding card will be on your phone and can be read by a QR code scanner (forget about having to print), you can check in, manage your extra luggage... all the latter from your user area in myRyanair where you can register by means of your Facebook or Google profile.
Where does Ryanair fly to? Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona, Cologne, Manchester, London, Warsaw, Milan, Budapest, Basel, Ibiza, Porto, Seville, Hamburg... and so on.
However, just remember one thing: if the airline offers prices that are so cheap that's because it cuts down on other aspects that you can make the most of if you don't mind traveling in a more uncomfortable manner. Limitations to cabin baggage, the weight of suitcases in the hold, you might not be able to sit next to your travel mate, hardly any leg space... all those details that you take for granted in a traditional airline but have helped this one and others such as Vueling, EasyJet, Air Berlin and Norwegian to earn themselves a space in this market.
