Ryanair launches flash sale on September & October flights for £12.99 – but you'll have to be quick

Ryanair has launched an end of summer sale across, with 500,000 seats for £12.99. 

The fares are available at holiday hotspots during the months of September and October.

Destinations include Malaga, Bari, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Rome, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Ibiza, Marrakech, among others.

But anyone wanting to book will have to be quick, as the sale ends at 11.59pm tonight.

Ryanair’s Director of Marketing, Dara Brady, said: "As vaccination rollout programmes continue in the coming months, air traffic is set to return to pre-pandemic levels and we are delighted to bring this amazing sale to our customers.

"They can fly to sunny hotspots Valencia, Palermo, Chania and explore new city break destinations Vienna, Edinburgh and Berlin this September and October from only £12.99."

Ryanair reported a loss of £230million (€273million) in the first three months of 2021 as the pandemic continues to affect holidays abroad.

The airline said that fares remain a third lower than pre-Covid, but that there was some hope for the summer as travel abroad picks up.

Ryanair said it expected to fly between 90 and 100 million passengers in its financial year to end-March 2022, up from an earlier forecast of 80-100 million.

A surge in bookings saw traffic increase from around one-third of 2019 levels in June to a forecast two-thirds in July, the airline indicated.

At least 10 million passengers are expected in August and September, around 70 per cent of pre-pandemic levels, Chief Financial Officer Neil Sorahan said.

Rival easyJet last week said it hoped to ramp up capacity to 60 per cent of 2019 levels in the July-September quarter.
