Ryanair (Dublin) has announced its first Israeli flights, with three new twice-weekly routes from Eilat’s Ovda Airport to Budapest, Kaunas and Krakow commencing in November.
In other news, Ryanair has opened a Facebook page (see below) joining most other carriers. According to the airline;
“To celebrate its new Facebook account and 30th birthday, Ryanair has launched a ‘30 Names 30 Planes’ competition, offering 30 fans the chance to have their name and face pictured on one of 30 Ryanair aircraft. Entry is through the Ryanair Facebook page, where fans can upload their photo and download a CGI video of their own Ryanair aircraft bearing their name and face, and the 30 lucky winners will be announced in September. ”

Southwest Airlines (Dallas) today is celebrating the Three Million Fan milestone with a special discount offer and a signature “concept” plane dedicated to our fans! Southwest Airlines was the first airline to reach a million Facebook Fans back in 2010, and now is the first airline worldwide to amass three million Facebook Fans!
Southwest decided to offer its fans a special one-day discount code available today only! Fans can get 50 percent off a roundtrip Wanna Get Away Fare simply by using the promotion code: LUV2LIKE. This promotion code is good through August 3, 2012, 11:59 p.m. PDT and is available for travel 9/5, 9/11, 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/31, and 11/6/12 (seats are limited, and some exclusions may apply). Customers can learn all the details and use the promo code only at http://www.southwest.com/html/promotions/fs-3million-likes.html.
Southwest also had a little FUN in creating a rendering of its own “concept” Facebook aircraft paint scheme. Southwest thought its Facebook Fans would particularly “like” to fly on Southwest’s Facebook One.
It is unclear if this “concept” special color scheme will evolve onto an actual aircraft. If so, we are waiting to “capture” it.
