Surprise: Airbus will be ready with 'flying car' prototype by year end

Airbus CEO shared that his company will be ready with a 'flying car' prototype by the end of this year. We have heard many stories about researchers and few companies working on concept of flying car for better urban mobility. But, with Airbus stepping in the segment, this could be a reality. Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders surprised reporters with his announcement that the aviation giant is working on a self-piloted flying car prototype. Last year, Airbus formed Urban Air Mobility division to work on flying car and other advanced mobility solutions.

Frills coming fast for a No-Frills Airline

Ryanair, an Irish low-cost airline, has announced a new, flexible business-class service on Wednesday. This move is intended to rebuild the airline's image by catching up with travelers' demands for better treatment.

The new fares are starting at €69.99 (or £59.99 for UK customers). The airline said its "Business Plus" fares would give customers flexibility on tickets, more check-in baggage of up to 20 kilograms, fast track airport security at some airports, and "premium" seats in the first five rows for quick boarding.
