The advert was banned as 'the basis of the claims had not been made clear in the ads.'

A Ryanair advert has been banned in the UK for making misleading environmental claims.

The advert now must be changed, and can no longer air in its current form.

Ryanair argued that when comparing the global operations of four other major European airlines to its own, it performed the best, though there was no clear definition of what a major airline was.Ryanair also said that when using the term"low CO2 emissions" in some of the ads, it meant"less than average", and that this was clear to consumers.

The ASA said:"We told Ryanair Ltd to ensure that when making environmental claims, they held adequate evidence to substantiate them and to ensure that the basis of those claims were made clear."Hit play to hear Carl Kinsella, Ellen Coyne and Dion Fanning on State of Us - Election 2020.
