da PRWEEK: Ryanair pitches take place but many decline £6,300 per month fees
A number of large Irish agencies have declined to pitch, owing to fees that are believed to be around £6,300 a month, according to The Irish Times.
Murray Consultants resigned the account earlier this month after representing the PR-savvy budget airline since before its stock market flotation in 1997, blaming a disagreement over fees.
On Wednesday, Ryanair reported a 24 per cent fall in first-quarter profits after taking a £43m hit from the volcanic ash cloud.
The carrier said the ‘unnecessary closures of airspace for 18 days’ had caused travel chaos for millions of holiday-makers.
