Ryanair increases airports offering Business Plus service


One of the most popular budget airlines has just announced an increase in the number of airports that offers fast-track security in a bid to improve its Business Plus service.

With more than 27% of its customers travelling on business, Ryan Air's Business Plus is becoming increasingly important to the carrier and now 25 airports will offer customers the extra perks.

Business destinations

Ryanair connects Europe's major business centres and offers flights to the largest range of destinations at the lowest fares.

Multiple daily flight Business Plus seats on the carrier's more established routes will now be joined by scheduled trips out of Birmingham, Budapest, Brussels Zaventem, Edinburgh, Eindhoven, Glasgow, Hamburg, Malaga, Rome Fiumicino, Stockholm Skavsta and Stuttgart.

The latest move represents an almost doubling of the airports that offer the enhanced business service from the carrier.


Ryanair's Business Plus class means that customers can enjoy extra perks which include free airport check-in, flexibility on ticket changes and 20kg checked-in bag allowance.

There's also fast-track airport security at the 25 airports across Europe that operate the scheme, along with priority boarding, premium seats and a free second carry-on bag. Fares start from £59.99.

Smarter choice

The company's Robin Kiely said: “Ryanair is pleased to add another 11 airports offering fast-track as part of our Business Plus service, ensuring business travellers enjoy a swifter airport journey, while saving time and money.”

Calling his airline "an even smarter choice for European businesses", Kiely outlined the way in which Ryanair is adapting it's offerings to reflect the importance of business travellers on its European routes.

“Business and corporate travellers continue to choose Ryanair for our low fares, industry-leading punctuality and the largest route network in Europe with even more business routes, connecting Europe's major cities with additional flights and improved schedules, and ensuring great savings for businesses of all sizes,” Kiely said.

Regional impact

With Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow among the 11 additional airports now providing the service, Ryanair is also trading on its previous strengths of being a carrier that serves the regions around the UK and offers easy access flights for local businesses and holidaymakers alike.
