Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, celebrated the launch of its 2012 Liverpool summer schedule with the help of students from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts 4:19 Academy.
Surprised City centre shoppers watched on in disbelief as students appeared one by one, stripping down to swimwear for a surprise beach party despite the wintry conditions, then disappeared amongst shoppers once again.

Ryanair’s Maria Macken said,
"Ryanair launched its Liverpool summer 2012 schedule with a little help from our friends from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. Despite the freezing conditions it felt like Spain in the city centre as the students stripped down to swimwear to create a live beach party to remind passengers in the North West that Ryanair’s 2012 Liverpool summer schedule is in full swing with 35 top destinations available on www.ryanair.com today.
"To celebrate the launch of our Liverpool summer schedule, Ryanair is releasing 1 million seats on sale from just £10.99 for travel across Europe in May & June. These low fares are now available for booking on www.ryanair.com until midnight Thursday (12 April)."
