FlightSeveral airlines have issued warning for the air passengers as numerous fake online advertisements are offering free flight tickets.

 

 

Many Facebook users have witnessed the online scam, which is offering free air travel option for the users in renowned airlines.

 

 

Ryanair has recently warned their passengers about a hoax advertisement, which was offering up tickets to the travellers due to Ryanair’s 35th anniversary.
