RYANAIR have waded into the Brexit debate by offering special cheap flights for expats wishing to fly home and vote in the referendum on Wednesday June 22 and Thursday June 23, the day of the ballot.
Prices start at €19.99, with the special fares designed to help the 1.2 million Brits living abroad have their say, with the airline’s owner, Michael O’Leary a staunch supporter of the EU.
The no-frills specialist is also donating money to the ‘Remain’ campaign, and O’Leary appeared alongside George Osbourne in London on Monday to promote the argument for staying in the politico-economic alliance.
Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair’s chief Marketing Officer said: “Ryanair is absolutely clear that the UK economy and its future growth prospects are stronger as a member of the European Union than they are outside of the EU and with just 5 weeks to go, we will continue to work hard to help deliver a resounding ‘Remain’ vote on 23rd June.”
Anyone wishing to take advantage of the offer had better be quick, though, as the sale ends at midnight on Thursday May 19.
