Ryanair yesterday stepped up its attacks on Birmingham International Airport after its staff appeared outside the airport's terminals to warn passengers they were at the "wrong airport" for low fares.
The Irish no-frills airline pulled all but one route out of BIA last year in favour of establishing a base at Nottingham East Midlands Airport.
Yesterday Ryanair project manager Bridget Dowling and her team handed out 50 free flights from NEMA to passengers outside BIA.
She said: "If you're looking for the lowest fares to Europe, then fly from NEMA."
The Ryanair stunt follows Tuesday's relaunch of British Airways' CitiExpress operation into a no-frills airline, with Birmingham one of its main bases.
