Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary has promised flights to the United States for under a tenner.

The outspoken CEO said the budget airline would offer 10 Euro flights to the United States and $10 flights from the US to Europe once it could get hold of the right aircraft.

However, passengers will not be surprised to hear they would need to pay add-ons for any extras - including food and luggage.

Speaking to the Irish Hotels Federation conference, O'Leary said: "Not every seat will be €10 of course, there will also need to be a very high number of business or premium seats.”

Ryanair would fly from 12 to 14 European cities to 12 to 14 US destinations, the Belfast Telegraph reported.

However, O'Leary conceded that the eye-catching offer was four or five years away as other airlines from the Gulf states are currently snapping up available planes.
