Santa test flight photographed by Ryanair passenger



2012-12-24 — / — Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline, today (23 Dec) confirmed that Santa Claus is undertaking test flights after he was photographed by a passenger as he flew alongside a Ryanair flight from London Stansted to Oslo yesterday. The photo, which should thrill children worldwide, clearly shows Santa and his reindeer on their way back to the North Pole, following his final test flights before Christmas Eve.

To celebrate Christmas and this definitive proof that Santa Claus is ready to deliver presents worldwide , Ryanair will release 100,000 seats across its European network from midnight (24:00hrs) Mon, 24 Dec, at prices starting from just €8 for travel on Mon, Tue, Wed & Thur in January. These “all in” low fares will be available on over 1,000 of Ryanair’s European routes but must be booked on before midnight (24:00hrs) Thur, 27 Dec.

Ryanair’s €8 Seat Sale includes all taxes, charges and fees, so passengers who choose to avoid discretionary charges, travel with carry-on luggage only and decline our priority boarding service can book, check-in online and fly for this advertised €8 fare on these seat sale flights.

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:

“A Ryanair passenger managed to photograph Santa’s sleigh from the window of one of our London-Oslo flights yesterday and just like our 1,500 daily departures, the photo has gone across Europe. Ryanair’s fares are so low it’s sometimes hard to believe they’re real – but just like Santa Claus, they most definitely are. And remember, Ryanair’s fares are low for life, not just for Christmas.
To celebrate Christmas and the confirmation that Santa is ready for Christmas, from midnight on Monday (24 Dec), passengers can book 100,000 seats at prices starting from just €8 for travel across our European network in January. These seats can only be booked until midnight (24:00hrs) Thur (27Dec) and are sure to be snapped up fast so we urge passengers to book them on before they sell out.”
