Ryanair have unveiled plans for even cheaper flights to Europe by flying passengers to cities that are hundreds of miles away from their intended destination.
Under the new scheme, flights to Rome will land in Paris, while Berlin-bound passengers will touch down in Copenhagen. ‘We believe these discounted flights will be enormously popular,’ said a spokesman, ‘plus they’ll also improve our green credentials with the reduced fuel required.’
Ryanair have defended their new flight plan, citing the results of an in-flight survey, where only 33% of passengers could find Rome or Berlin on a map. ‘Most of our customers were never very good at geography at school anyway, while others said the world had changed so much over the last 40 years that they couldn’t possibly be expected to recognise it any more.’
The first of the new routes will begin operation this month, with shoppers and tourists bound for Vienna’s famous Christmas market being rerouted to Coventry Airport.
