Flights and hotels.
Ryanair has announced a strategic partnership with Booking.com, offering over half a million hotels for booking on its website.
The new partnership will allow customers to book accommodation directly on Ryanair.com while booking flights, the airline says.
Booking.com is a world leader in online hotel and accommodation booking, and will facilitate the airline in offering competitive prices on "any type of property" in 209 countries.
The partnership is the latest step in Ryanair’s “Always Getting Better” programme, following a new website, an app with mobile boarding passes and a Business Plus service.
“Ryanair will carry 89 million passengers this year at our lowest fares and our partnership with Booking.com guarantees the lowest hotel prices, allowing Ryanair customers to book their flights and accommodation together,” said Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs.
Andre Manning, Booking.com's Global Head of PR, added:
“We are excited to be the exclusive partner of Ryanair and to see reservations of accommodations grow rapidly in a very short time via their website.”
Over 750,000 room nights are reserved daily on Booking.com.
The company is based in the Netherlands, but is supported internationally by 150 offices in over 50 countries including Dublin, Ireland. It hosts over 40 million guest reviews.
