Ryanair Launches In-Flight Cocktails From Less Than €10

Ryanair has launched a new in-flight cocktail menu with an array of drinks from just €9.50.

To celebrate the summer season, Ryanair will be launching a variety of seven different cocktails, including a Dublin Lemonade (Jameson Irish Whiskey, Sprite Zero and sparkling water), a Fruit Snack, (Bombay Sapphire Gin, Sprite Zero and Capri-sun), Rose Spritz (rose wine and Sprite Zero) or a Flying Iced Tea (Bombay Sapphire Gin, Absolut Vodka and Coca-Cola).

'Summer Holiday'

“Summer is finally here, and what better way to kickstart your summer holiday than with a delicious cocktail from Ryanair’s new in-flight cocktail menu," said Jade Kirwan, Ryanair’s head of communications.

"Adding to our already extensive range of in-flight food and beverage options, our new cocktail range offers a selection of seven ready to drink cocktails from Flying Iced Tea to French 75 to Rose Spritz and more."

"Go Either Way"

Meanwhile, Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary said on Monday that a "recessionary feel around Europe" could be a factor in slower-than-expected growth in airfares as the low-cost carrier posted record annual profits slightly ahead of expectations.


O'Leary warned two weeks ago that summer fares would likely be lower than the 5% to 10% rise it expected as recently as late April. The airline said its fresh forecast of flat to modest year-on-year peak summer price growth was 'heavily dependent' on last-minute summer bookings.

With less than 50% of bookings made for July to September, the quarter the airline makes most of its profit, O'Leary said summer pricing could still "go either way".
