The Secrets to Ryanair

45' (GER, ENG subs)

Unbeatably low ticket prices yet a major competitor in the aviation field. Check out how Ryanair brought other European airlines to their knees without breaking the bank.

Based on their consistently growing number of passengers and low prices, Ryanair is now the biggest company in the European aviation industry. With a creative employment model and a business model that foregoes luxury and promotes fast turnaround times, the budget airline has put the entire branch under pressure. The documentary shows how Ryanair’s bold yet sophisticated system allows them to avoid German taxes and social security contributions to the detriment of their pilots, the German social security funds and inland revenues.

In the last decade, the Irish airline with its unbeatable prices has made an unprecedented rise in the industry. Through cost-cutting measures and a strategic business plan, Ryanair has become a corporate giant. Nowadays, other airlines are offering flights at ridiculously low prices and are copying Ryanair's employment model - but they still haven't managed to gain the same success as Ryanair. The documentary shows how for years Ryanair with an audacious yet sophisticated system was able to provide cheap flights while adhering to aviation safety regulations.
