Ryanair have announced that they are offering savings to Erasmus students, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus programme.

The airline has teamed with the Erasmus programme that provides university students across Europe the chance to study in a different European city for a year.

As part of Ryanair's 'Always Getting Better' programme, Erasmus students will be offered 15 per cent off Ryanair flights as well as a free checked-in bag.

There will also be a special booking portal, travel tips and weekly travel offers.

Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said the programme will and allow students to save money while they travel.

President of Erasmus Student Network, Safi Sabuni said:

“The Erasmus Generation is a generation of Europeans that are perennially curious, open-minded and full of wanderlust. This is made possible not only through the success of the European project and initiatives such as Schengen and Erasmus+, but also thanks to companies like Ryanair – without which it would be much harder to travel around Europe. We are very excited about this partnership and look forward to a fruitful collaboration.”
