Departure lounge

Ryanair has announced plans to launch an in-flight mobile phone service on its Stansted flights, despite fears over safety.

The service will allow passengers to make calls and send and receive text messages during flights.

Ten planes at Dublin have been equipped with the technology, and Ryanair hopes to get clearance for the next phase at Stansted by the end of August, eventually looking to roll it out across the rest of its fleet.
