Ryanair, the Ireland-based budget airline, has announced an addition to its service to Munich, Germany, from London Stansted Airport.
The airline is offering additional flight from London Stansted Airport to Munich for the UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) Champions League final to be played on May 19, 2012, between English club, Chelsea, and German club, Bayern Munich, at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
The winner of the tournament will be playing the 2011-12 UEFA Europa League winners in the 2012 UEFA Super Cup, and will also be entering the semi-finals of the 2012 FIFA Club World Championship, as the UEFA representative.
Ryanair has responded to the massive demand for travel from Chelsea fans, and the fares are on offer from £467 return, with the special flight departing London Stansted Airport at 16:10GMT on May 18, 2012, and returning from Munich on May 20, 2012.
The airline has advised Chelsea fans to book in advance for the limited-seat flight.
The company head of communications, Stephen McNamara, said, ‘Ryanair has scheduled another extra Champions League Final flight after our reservations centre was flooded with calls from Chelsea fans eager to witness their showdown with Bayern Munich, in what will be the biggest match in the club’s history.
Ryanair’s Champions League Final flights will ensure the Blues fans reach the final and won’t be outnumbered by home supporters in Munich. Four Chelsea players will miss the final – Chelsea fans should book today on www.ryanair.com to avoid missing out too.’
