Ryanair has announced that its website, www.ryanair.com will briefly be out of operation this weekend to facilitate improvements.

The site will be unavailable from 10pm on Friday, 18 May until midnight on Saturday, 19 May. Flights will be unaffected but the company is advising passengers to make sure they check-in online before 4pm on Friday afternoon.

The company promises that from Sunday passengers can look forward to faster access and improved passenger updates with an upgraded version of the site.

To mark the upgrade Ryanair is releasing 1 million seats at fares from €10.99 for travel on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in June which will be available on over 1,000 of Ryanair’s European routes but must be booked on the Ryanair website.
