“We’ve pleased to have attracted a quarter of a million followers in the six weeks since we joined Facebook, on the day we celebrated the 30th anniversary of our first flight, and we look forward to bringing more great offers, content and competitions to our fans,” says Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Robin Kiely. “We’ve had thousands of ‘30 Names 30 Planes’ entries so far.”
