How Ryanair makes money (cont...)

30 Nov 2009 by Tom Otley

Ryanair has announced that it is to launch a new Mastercard
prepayment card on 1 December, and a month later will start to charge for the Visa
Electron card.

From 1 January 2010, the Visa Electron payment card will attract
a €5 administration charge while MasterCard Prepaid will become the sole free
from of payment on www.ryanair.com.

The airline says that “The MasterCard Prepaid card is much more widely available
than Visa Electron and can be picked up from financial institutions/ card
issuers throughout Europe (including Belgium, Ireland, Netherlands and
Portugal) and online. MasterCard Prepaid cards will not only provide savings on
Ryanair flights but can also be used to withdraw money from ATMs and make
retail purchases in shops and online.”
