Im writing a report on Ryanair for my Business Skills module at Napier University Edinburgh, and need more information about the airline, so I would be greatful for some help.

1 - Ryanair's aircraft are all registered in Ireland, are there any reasons for this apart from it being an Irish Airline (I know this sounds stupid, but are there different rules, regulations etc that aids ryanair in its LCC operation???)

2 - Is there anywhere I can find information on the deregulation and the policies for flying between EU countries ie what procedures do Ryanair have to go through before opening up new routes.

3 - What exact deals do Ryanair negotiate? Is it to do with discounted landing fees, or do they receive money from airports, or is it to do with how much they airports charge per pax?

4 - Are Ryanair still paying back the money to CRL?

5 - Are the credit and debit card charges imposed (they are higher than other airlines) a discreet way of adding a fuel surcharge onto the fare?

6 - The boeing/ryanair deal, what sort of discounts did they receive?

7 - How much revenue do they make from other sales? percentage wise. Ie inflight sales, travel insurance, car hire, bus transfers etc (Do Ryanair take a percentage of the money charged on the transfer buses from their secondary airfields to the city centre?)

8 - Whats the make up of the pax like on Ryanair? Are they popular with business passengers when they fly often 45 minutes to 1 hr 15 minutes away from the city advertised?

9 - What % of bookings are made through the internet?

10 - How do Ryanair use technology? Ie at check in I have noticed they dont use a computer system, why is this. easyJet keep using the latest technolgy in check in and boarding which may have initial set up costs, are Ryanair planning to follow. How does the check in to boarding work with Ryanair if they dont use computers?

11 - What are the average salaries for Ryanair employees?

Well.....I think thats about it for now, it would be great to hear replies from everyone with information (im sure Pearson will have something to tell me!!!) If there are any employees of the airline that could help it would much be appreciated as I have 3 weeks to complete the report now.

You can also contact me at mat_uk@hotmail.com

Thanks everyone!

Under EU rules any EU carrier may set up shop in any other member state - it is not necessary to re-register as a British company. UK rules still apply in terms of safety and other issues - being Irish doesn't not exempt them from the rules other UK based/British owned carriers must follow.

Sorry not sure about that but I can tell you AB got a bit upset because Fr got such a big discount and AB didn't so they've gone over to the A320.

I don't wish to be rude, but 99% of the members herein are non-professionals (in the aviation world). I would rather do proper research to secure accurate answers.

I understand FR are still in dispute about paying back the subsidy they got from Charleroi, which the Courts found inappropriate, so it seems unlikely that they have paid any money back.

To register the aircraft in another country would mean acquiring another Air Operators Certificate (AOC). This is a very costly process, as is transferring any aircraft over to that AOC, we're talking millions, not to mention time-consuming! After that, any simulator training must be done in the country the AOC is held, and all pilots must go on a conversion course to allow them to fly on a different country's register - this will also mean paying for contract training captains already allowed to fly in that country to do the training.

Basically, it's very expensive and a logistical nightmare!  Smile

How are you going to reference this "extra information"?
