RYANAIR is offering a 20% off seat sale this December for anyone flying back to Ireland.
In an effort to ramp up their end-of-year sales, the budget airline has decided to call the Government's bluff and encourage people to book flights home, despite the fact that Micheál Martin and co. are yet to endorse travelling home for the holidays due to health risks.
Ryanair havae stressed that they want to reunite families for Christmas, and to hell with restrictive measures - as has been their M.O. since the beginning of the pandemic in all honesty.
They are encouraging passengers to get Covid-19 tests before their fly, to avoid falling foul of the EU's 'Traffic Light' system, and have provided locations of test centre near airports they fly to on their website.
The Traffic Light Travel System, which was introduced earlier this month, allows passengers flying to Ireland from zones designated as 'orange' to avoid any quarantine requirements if they have a negative Covid test conducted three days prior to arrival.
Anyone travelling from 'red' zones will also be able to avoid quarantine if they receive a negative test result within five days after arriving in Ireland.
"We welcome the implementation of the EU 'Traffic Light' System in Ireland, and with Covid tests now widely available, the Travel System ensures that loved ones get home safely for the Christmas season", a Ryanair spokesperson told Extra.ie.
"To make things easier for our passengers, we have created a feature on our website which provides a list of test centres located close to Ryanair airports, allowing passengers to book their test when booking their flights home.
"With our amazing 20% Off seat sale and flights all across Europe, customers can book their return flights home this Christmas at fantastic prices.
"Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto Ryanair.com to avoid missing out."
