Ryanair launched its latest digital initiatives at the Web Summit in Lisbon, under year 4 of its “Always Getting Better” programme which include:

  • New Ryanair Rooms website & app 
  • Dedicated Chinese language website 
  • Personalised Ryanair.com website
  • Ryanair Tickets 
  • Connecting flights at Porto from January 

Ryanair has launched a major upgrade to its Ryanair Rooms website, offering its customers an even wider choice of hotel, hostel, B&B, holiday villa and homestay options, and all at the lowest prices.

Ryanair also launched a dedicated Chinese website ryanair.com/cn/zh (its 19th language site), allowing customers to search and book the lowest fares in Europe. 

Customers logged in through the MyRyanair customer registration platform can enjoy a personalised Ryanair.com website experience, displaying their preferred and most recently searched routes, as well as recommended products and services based on the type of trip, as part of the first phase of an extensive personalisation upgrade, with tailored special offers to follow.

Ryanair Tickets, in partnership with Coras, is now live on the Ryanair.com website, allowing customers to book tickets for London West End shows, with even more events and attractions to be added in the coming months. 

Ryanair will also launch a connecting flights service at Porto Airport from January, providing Ryanair customers with an expanded route choice of 20 connecting services in total, and the opportunity to book and transfer directly onto connecting Ryanair flights. 

These latest digital developments are in addition to Apple Pay integration, connecting flights, long haul Air Europa flights on sale on Ryanair.com and a new partnership with the Erasmus Student Network – with much more to come. 

At the Web Summit, Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said: “We are pleased to launch these latest digital initiatives under year 4 of our “Always Getting Better” programme. Our improved Ryanair Rooms site, new Chinese website, personalised website and Ryanair Tickets are the latest steps on our journey to becoming the ‘Amazon of Travel’, and with these new digital initiatives, we’re continuing to improve all aspects of the Ryanair experience for our 129 million customers. And from January, Porto will become the third airport with a connecting flights service, across 20 routes. 

While we continue to innovate, the one thing that won’t change will be our low fares, and customers will continue to enjoy the biggest and best choice of destinations, with the most on-time flights and a fantastic onboard experience.” 

Ryanair to Launch Connecting Flights at Porto
Ryanair also announced it would extend its connecting flights service to Porto Airport from 3rd January 2018, providing Ryanair customers with an expanded route choice, and the opportunity to book and transfer directly onto connecting Ryanair flights.

Following the successful launch of connecting flights at Rome Fiumicino and Milan Bergamo, Ryanair customers will now also be able to:

  • Book connecting flights on the first 20 new routes via Porto airport on Ryanair.com
  • Transfer ‘airside’ between connecting flights without having to go ‘landside’
  • Checked-in baggage transferred through to their final destination
  • One booking reference for both flights

In Portugal, Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said: “Ryanair is pleased to extend our connecting flights service to Porto Airport from 3rd January 2018, allowing customers to book connecting Ryanair flights on the lowest fares at one of our four popular Portuguese bases. Starting with an initial 20 new routes, customers will be able to transfer onto their next flight without having to go landside, and have their bags checked through to their final destination.

To celebrate the launch of the connecting flights we have released 10,000 seats for sale from Porto from just €9.99 for travel between November 2017 and January 2018 which are available for booking until midnight Friday (10 Nov). Since these amazing low fares will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
