          Airline review: Ryanair - low cost airline 

    Founded in 1985 in Ireland by founder Tony Ryan, this airline started operations with a single airplane, a 15 seat turboprop.

    Initially flying between Waterford, Ireland and London Gatwick, Ryanair has set itself the goal to become a major passenger air transporter linking Ireland with London. In fact, not only that it managed to find place between the 2 strong rivals operating on the route, British Airways and Air Lingus, but it started operating on a new route next year, between Dublin and London Luton.

    At the beginning of the '90s, the airline struggled with financial problems. It ran in loss, but the problems were starting to get resolved in 1995, when it has adopted the US "low fare/no frills" model. This is what we call "low cost air travel". The company gained popularity, transported an increasing number of passengers over the years. With an average of around 200 operational aircraft in 2005, Ryanair is one of the World's larges airlines. Today, it is considered to be easyJet's main rival.

            

    Website & online booking services

            

    Ryanair was one of the first airlines to introduce online booking.

    The Ryanair site at first glimpse, seems confusing due to the too many colours used on it.

    However, fares are very low. Few airlines can get plane ticket prices so low. In fact, Ryanair was amongst the cheapest low cost airlines, when this category of airlines appeared in Europe. Today, there are numerous such carriers and cost-effective operations are being adopted by more and more airlines.

    If you're searching for cheap plane tickets within Europe, you should check Ryanair's site.

    Overall, we can say that the site could be better designed, better organized. The Ryanair official site lacks elegance, has too many flashy banners, confusing advertisements certainly scare off visitors who visit it for the first time.

    The airline offers very cheap tickets. So, if you're budget is very low, you must check their site out. Especially for travelers who visit Ireland, Ryanair could offer some very low airfares.

    The Ryanair website is multilingual, useful for travelers from various countries.

    The destinations include many large cities in Europe, but important ones still lack from the list. Ryanair has omitted certain destinations, large European capitals for unknown reasons. The company possesses a large fleet that could link most of Europe's large cities, perhaps the company's interests are not linked to the respective regions or, perhaps the competition is too intense in certain areas for Ryanair to get in.

    Services include the most important 3: plane tickets, hotels, car rentals. But the site is so chaotic that some visitors might not understand exactly where and what can they book.
