Korean and ryanair

Post by oguzhan. on Mon 6 Jun 2011 - 16:27

Hello everyone,

So my in Korea living friend (he is korean) is coming to visit me in Germany next month. We were actually planning on travelling a little in Europe but since the train tickets are way too expensive, I thought of ryanair.
Now my question: Can he fly with ryainair? and if yes, what does he need?(like visa or some kind of papers)
Furthermore I heard that there is some kind of problem with booking a flight online if you are no citizen of the EU.
I really am not knowledgeable about this stuff (this is actually my first travel by airplane..) so I would really appreciate any kind of information and help Smile

Thanks for your time!

Hello !

Your friends needs a passport and a visa , here's the ryanair's rules Smile

Your friend will have to go Ryanair desk at airport, to collect a pass. If he/she turns up at boarding gate without it , he will not be allowed board. There is no charge involved. Have seen U.S. citizens in mad rush back from gate to collect this.
