The carrier’s ‘Fly Home to Vote Remain’ campaign sees cheap seats to the UK for travel on 22nd and 23rd June (the Referendum’s Polling Day).

According to the airline, it is “to help the more than 1.2m Brits living abroad fly back to vote ‘Remain’.”

It is primarily aimed at UK citizens. However, Hans Joergen Elnaes, Sales & Marketing Manager Scandinavia & Baltic tells The Foreigner that anyone can benefit from these low fares to all UK airports.

Ryanair is actively campaigning for a ‘Remain’ vote. They argue that this is because it will lead to more UK jobs and better economic growth, that the  EU Open Skies [Agreement] has transformed UK tourism and job creation prospects, and  that the free movement of goods and services has made the UK one of Europe’s most competitive and best performing economies.

“Leaving Europe won’t save the UK money or red tape because like Norway the UK will still have to contribute to Europe, and obey its rules if it wants to continue to trade freely with Europe, so it’s clear that UK voters should vote Yes to Europe and Yes to the reformed Europe,” Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said in a statement.

Last week, both Bank of England Governor Mark Carney and Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), warned of the risk of recession should Britain vote to leave the EU.

Conservative politician Iain Duncan Smith, leader of the Brexit campaign, subsequently suggested that fellow Party member George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, might have co-ordinated the back-to-back release of both financial heavyweights’ reports.

Mr Duncan Smith challenged Mr Osborne to reveal both phone call logs and emails between Bank of England and Treasury officials prior to its assessment, reported Michael Savage, Chief Political correspondent at The Times.

“Is it a surprise suddenly on Thursday then followed by Friday you have two reports coming out? Do you think they told each other or talked to each other about what they were doing? I wonder about that,” told BBC One’s Sunday Politics programme.
