Ryanair Jumpseat Policy

I am currently a 16 year old student who has a strong desire in becoming an airline pilot and am wondering how does one go about getting a jumpseat on a Ryanair flight?

Do you email Ryanair ?
Do you ask captain when board flight ?

How are you able to get a return jumpseat? (For the flight and flight that then goes back again in 25 minutes after the turn around.) My friend went on a return jumpseat to Palma from Shannon.

I am not sure on their policy or how you would go about it. Anyone with help or information please reply. Thank you very much.

Due to planes being flown into buildings, I'm sorry to say, but it's just not gonna happen.

Ryanair's policy is only to allow crew members on jump seats.

Opportunities for riding jumpseat are really only possible outside the UK and USA, I've seen several passengers flying jumpseat with KLM, and have been on the jumpseat quite a few times in recent years when flying on LCC's in South East Asia.

Unless you personally know crew it isn't going to happen I'm afraid. Your best bet would be to part with some cash as a 'gift' to a capt in the likes of Africa / South East Asia for a jump seat ride

Thank for your reply. I wasnt actually that sure about how to go about in trying to get a jumpseat ride but I actually know ryanair pilots based out of DUB & EDI. If I got in contact with them and tell them, would I be able to then go on jumpseat ride on one of their flights ?

No. It is illegal, unless you are Ryanair crew.

The only way you'll be allowed to jumpseat is with express written permission from FR ops / chief pilot, which is unlikely unless you have a legitimate reason to be in there. In other less regulated areas of the world (Africa, South East Asia etc) it's easier to get a flight in the flight deck, whether it be through sweet talking them or paying cash...
