Ryanair Lets Greeks Buy Tickets for Cash as Bank Cards Refused

Ryanair Holdings Plc said Greek citizens will be able to buy tickets for its flights using hard currency as bank-card transactions are increasingly declined as a result of capital controls imposed by the government.

“Ryanair has now provided the option for Greeks looking to travel to buy their plane tickets in cash at the Ryanair ticket desk at its airports,” Europe’s biggest discount airline said in a statement Wednesday. Other nationals should carry on making purchases via its website, the Dublin-based company said.
