Ryanair plans to offer flights to US for less than £10



Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary revealed on Tuesday that the airline plans to offer flights to America for less than £10.

But, before you get too excited, the exact cost of extra fees has not yet been revealed.

Speaking at the Irish Hotels Federation conference in Meath, Mr O'Leary said that Ryanair would offer €10 flights (around £8) to the United States and US$10 flights from the US to Europe, though passengers would pay extra for everything from meals to baggage, reports the Belfast Telegraph.

According to the Independent.ie, the airline has a business plan for launching a transatlantic service, but it will take four to five years to get the planes needed.

But, it added, a full service would operate within six months of Ryanair getting the aircraft it needs.

The flights would operate from 12 to 14 major European cities to 12 to 14 top US cities.
