Ryanair Holdings Plc (LON: RYA) is under lens over its Easter ads dubbed as “jab and go”, which allegedly urges customers to book Easter flights.
- The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said it has received around 1,600 complaints about the ad so far.
- The complainants highlighted that the ads are misleading as it claims that the vaccine rollout will be successful by March and the travel restrictions will be lifted by then.
- The ad was televised and also appeared on Europe’s biggest discounter’s website.
- The budget airline has offered one million seats from £19.99, asking travellers to book seat for summer as the vaccines are coming.
- Though, the airline has defended the ad stating that they are a celebration of vaccine and clarified that it hopes that mass vaccinations will help in returning to a sense of 'normality' and would help everyone do a summer holiday.
- It’s worth mentioning here that the airlines’ December traffic was down by 83 per cent to 1.9 million guests. Ryanair Holdings Plc has reduced its schedule by two-thirds.
- On 6 January 2021, the stocks of the Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON: RYA) traded higher by 2.13% from its previous closing, hovering at around EUR 15.36 at 10:37 AM GMT+1.
