Ryanair has announced a new flight partnership with Spanish airline Air Europa, which will allow its 130 million customers to book Air Europa long haul flights on the Ryanair website.

From today, customers can browse and book Air Europa flights on 20 long haul routes from Madrid to 16 countries in North, Central and South America, including Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico and the United States.

The new partnership is the latest initiative delivered under “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme, and follows the launch of its connecting flight service via Rome Fiumicino last week.

The second phase of this Air Europa partnership will be launched later this year and will allow Ryanair customers to connect onto Air Europa long haul flights through Madrid.

Ryanair is continuing its discussions with a number of other long haul airlines on potential feed and connecting flight partnerships.

“We are pleased to announce this exciting partnership with Air Europa, which allows our customers to browse and book flights on 20 long routes from Madrid to cities in Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico and the USA on the Ryanair website,” Michael O’Leary, ceo of Ryanair, said.
