As if Ryanair had not received enough bad press recently, the airline is now facing criticism from Which? Magazine over extra charges for passengers to Spain. The magazine found that Ryanair had added charges of up to £7.20 per person, after the Spanish government decided to increase airport taxes in June.
The Telegraph reports that whilst it is perfectly legal to pass these charges onto passengers instead of the airline absorbing them itself, travellers should be informed of the charges "prior to departure". Instead, several passengers flying with Ryanair were charged only after they returned from their holiday.
This news comes as part of a chain of events leaving Ryanair in an unfavourable light. Only three days ago, Ryanair received further bad press over one of its air hostesses who attempted to smuggle 8,000 duty-free cigarettes into Britain.
Furthermore, on the weekend of September 15 and 16, five Ryanair planes were forced to make emergency landings due to various technical issues, leading the Telegraph to accuse the airline of "courting disaster".
