Low Cost Airlines

I was looking at this press release from Ryanair.  I know that a lot of people that come onto our courses are concerned about low cost airlines and safety.

People on our courses say, 'Which airlines would you avoid flying with?' and, 'Are low cost airlines as safe as they have such little time on the ground between flights?'

Simple message. Any airline that flies into UK airspace has to meet the Joint Aviation Authorities safety standards - this is a European standard.
-----------------------

Some airlines are very good at staying in the news by announcing all sorts of price reductions or money making ideas.  None of these have come to fruition but they keep certain airlines in the public eye.

Examples:
  • You will have to pay to use the toilet
  • There will be a range of cheaper standing places for some of our flights
  • We will be applying a 'fat-tax' for our heavier passengers
-------------------------------

The low cost airlines are being run by geniuses. They are able to make a profit when other airlines are struggling so they must be doing something right?!

Take care,
