Ryanair's new 'business-plus' fares will also offer priority boarding and fast track security at selected airports.

The airline has also recently introduced allocated seating, a free second carry-on bag, reduced fees and a new app with mobile boarding passes.

This follows Easyjet's move to attract more business travellers, including the launch of Easyjet's 'inclusive' fare for corporate passengers and travel bookers.

Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said: "This launch of Ryanair Business Plus, combined with our new groups and corporate service, and partnership with Travelport GDS – with a second GDS partner to be announced soon – will make business travel with Ryanair ever simpler, as we continue to offer so much more than just the lowest fares.

"Businesses are becoming smarter with their travel and over 25% of our customers already travel on business. We now offer even more business routes, connecting Europe’s major cities with additional flights and improved schedules, ensuring great savings for businesses of all sizes."
