Ryanair announces partnership with Amadeus

Ryanair has announced a new GDS partnership with Amadeus, allowing Amadeus-affiliated travel agents across Europe access to book Ryanair flights.

This partnership, which is Ryanair’s second GDS agreement, follows the August launch of Ryanair’s “Business Plus” product and a dedicated corporate service. The Amadeus partnership is the latest in an on-going programme of Ryanair customer improvements, including the launch of a new website, a new smartphone application featuring mobile boarding passes; allocated seating, a second carry-on bag allowance and a dedicated family service called “Family Extra”.

Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said: “Ryanair is pleased to partner with Amadeus whose technology represents a significant opportunity for us to reach a wider range of business and corporate customers. With more than 27% of our customers already travelling on business, we are continuing to improve Europe’s best business service, with the lowest fares, most on-time flights and our tailored Business Plus service. For business travellers, corporations and TMCs, this agreement will mean greater access to our low fares and Europe’s largest route network.”

Amadeus’ SVP Distribution, Holger Taubmann added: “Ryanair is the world’s most successful low fare airlines so we are delighted the airline has seen the value of working with Amadeus to increase its reach, yield and merchandising capabilities. Our technology will enable travel agencies to book Ryanair flights easily and seamlessly. For our subscriber partners, this agreement underlines our commitment to continued innovation in order to offer the widest possible range of airline content.”
