Ryanair is giving away a million flights for just €19.85.

The company, which first took off from Waterford to London in 1985, has grown to cover over 1,600 routes across Europe, North Africa and has recently announced its first flights to Israel.

The special tickets will be released across the airline’s European network from Wednesday till Sunday night for travel between September and the end of July so get in there quick.

Ryanair’s chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs said: “Ryanair revolutionised and democratised air travel in Europe and 30 years on, we have grown to become Europe’s biggest airline, carrying 100m people annually, between 30 countries, and saving European customers over €11bn every year by choosing Ryanair over high fare competitors. In fact, this €19.85 sale will save customers a further €125m.”

The lowest cost airline has undergo a public image revamp over the past year after it was forced to issue a profit warning in September 2013 after customers tired of its ruthless cost saving and opted for other low cost carriers.

It has introduced a new business class, loosened baggage restrictions and introduced allocated seating which pushed its annual profit forecast up by €100 million in November 2014.
