From 1 October, Ryanair will launch a low-price accommodation offer, Ryanair Rooms, marking the latest digital improvement delivered by Ryanair Labs under the ‘Always Getting Better’ programme.
The carrier is aiming to provide customers a range of accommodation options including hotels, hostels, B&Bs, villas and other rooms, and as such is inviting all interested accommodation providers to submit proposals to become partners in Ryanair Rooms.
Ryanair’s chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs, commented, “Ryanair’s low fares revolutionised air travel for Europe’s passengers – now with Ryanair Rooms, we’re going to transform booking accommodation. Ryanair Rooms will offer consumers the biggest range of accommodation via the Ryanair.com website, but all with the same lowest prices we guarantee with our flights.
“More and more customers are looking to Ryanair for products other than flights, and we see this as a natural progression towards Ryanair.com becoming the Amazon of air travel,” Jacobs continued. “We look forward to receiving proposals from interested partners who want to help us disrupt the travel industry once more.”
The development follows the launch of Ryanair Car Hire in partnership with CarTrawler last August.
