ROUND TRIP WITH RYANAIR TO ACCOMPANY A CHILD.

Post by APBI on Tue 3 Jan 2012 - 11:54

I need to go to from Madrid to Verona with a child, I will hand the child to her mother at the airport and then return to Madrid in the same plane. The plane is scheduled to leave 25 minutes after arrival. I have no baggage at all and I will definitely dash through the terminal and the security check... Is it possible? I will fly on a day when there should not be heavy traffic.

I believe there is an interesting market for Ryanair here, parents are sometimes reluctant to let their kids fly as unaccompanied minors and there are many return flights that are of course very convenient... if one can catch them. All I would need is a bit of flexibility and being allowed to seat close to the exit door.

Yes, I have bought a back up ticket, but it would be a lot less convenient, as it flies the next day from a different Italian airport.

Thanks!

You can't book a returnflight that is leaving 25 min after arrival, but you CAN book two single tickets separately. So you first book Madrid-Verona single way and then book Verona-Madrid single way in a new booking. However, keep in mind that on paper the gates closes 30 min before departure, so that is before you are scheduled to arrive at Verona. I think you need to land 20 min ahead of schedule to make any chance to catch the same fight back.. It's very unlikely to make it in time if you ask me.

So it is possible to book it, but completely your own responsibility to take the risk Very Happy

I agree - it is very unlikely you will board the same plane for your departure to Madrid ( I would not do it) - but it has been achieved at some airports..
At least you have a back up ticket for the next day - please let us know how you get on and good luck.

Last time I was at VRN, the Ryanair flights to Madrid departed from T2, that is to say the same building as "arrivals".
If there are many people waiting at the security control, you can ask to jump the queue, it's often allowed (we are in Italy)
Thus, it's possible to do the trick -although it's risky ....

Hi Holland Ryanair and fellow Ryanair travelers,

Thank you for your kind replies. I of course take full responsibility for any delays, I know I cannot take anything for granted. But Verona is a small airport, so I believe there is a reasonable chance to get out of the plane and through security and run to the gate. I will carry no bags and I will have a boarding card ready, so if the plane is not late I might make it all in 5 minutes. Ryanair is using the same plane to go back to Madrid, so if I can be among the first passengers to leave the plane, I can reach the gate before the whole queue to board the plane is processed (though I admit that would be less than 20 minutes before scheduled departure). I would encourage Ryanair to give people like me a chance, it would be a nice extra market for the Company, maybe 2 or 3% extra seats, because most parents would prefer to travel with their kids rather than sending them unaccompanied in another airline... Think of parents who are flying with two or more kids. I do not mean to delay the flight, just to be allowed to board if I have no luggage and I make it to the gate say 10 or 15 minutes before departure. I understand Ryanair cannot give any guarantee, it is all my responsibility, but in small airports it should be an option, as Ryanair very often will use the same plane to go back to a base.

Thanks,

Aarne

Yes, it's a good idea to be amongst the very first to deplane - thus be sure to have a seat in the first rows - the rear (mobile) stairs are sometimes late to arrive.

Hi atoutprix,
I will ask the crew to let me seat forward.
If the plane is a bit early (often the case with Ryanair to small airports) and they do not park the plane far from the terminal, so no bus is required, it might be possible. last time I went to Verona I just had to walk on the tarmac. I had rented a car and I was able to pick it maybe 30 minutes earlier than contracted... I will let you know how it goes. It would help a lot if this is something that can work out.

Cheers,

Aarne
