Ryanair has enhanced the benefits of its Business Plus fare option, and introduced a new Leisure Plus fare.

The flight change flexibility of the Business Plus fare has been extended to two days either side of the scheduled flight date, as well as on the day of travel itself.

Ryanair says that 25 per cent of its customers are travelling on business, and the change ensures “an even better service for businesses of all sizes”.

The new Leisure Plus fare – which starts from €51.99 – offers “a discounted bundle of travel extras”, including priority boarding, a reserved seat and a 20kg checked bag.

It means the carrier now offers three fare types – Ryanair Regular, Leisure Plus, and Business Plus.
