Ryanair Has Cheap Flights, But Charges for App

Ryanair may offer dirt cheap flights, but they charge through the nose for everything else.  Most other airlines offer their booking apps for free, but Ryanair has decided to charge £2.49 (€2.99) for their booking app.  The app is called Ryanapp and it is available in the Apple App Store.  The app is also soon going to be available on Android Smartphones.  The odd thing about Ryanapp is that people seem perfectly fine with paying for it, despite the fact that the competition offers free apps.


Michael O’Leary, the owner of Ryanair, does not believe in giving away something for free for which he can charge money, and the app is not exception.  The app will allow people to view flights on Ryanair, make bookings, manage those bookings, see special promotions, view the flights schedules, and get the latest Ryanair news.  Passengers can also arrange for checked baggage and priority booking, both of which cost extra.  The app is not new.  It has been around since March, 2012.
