Ryanair has been named the filthiest flight operator in the UK by passengers, according to a Which? Travel survey.

In the survey of almost 8,000 people, fewer than half of passengers (42%) scored the Irish budget airline as good for cleanliness.

In contrast, the survey found that on average, eight in 10 (81%) of passengers rated hygiene positively across 42 airlines.

But Ryanair customers were unhappy, with a quarter (24%) claiming cleanliness on flights was poor.

While Ryanair was not the only airline to be criticised for its hygiene, it was significantly worse than the other airlines included in the survey.

Many customers of WizzAir were also less than impressed with its cleaning, with only six in 10 (62%) finding the cleanliness to be good.

The scores were hardly better for those who chose to fly with Vueling or Iberia, with 63% of passengers being satisfied with the cleanliness.

Around two-thirds (68%) of Easyjet passengers rated the cleanliness as “good”, “very good” or “excellent”.

British Airways was also in passengers’ good books with three in four (78%) being pleased with the airline’s hygiene.
