Ryanair has launched a partnership with Internet payment provider Paypal
The agreement means Ryanair’s 86m passengers will now be able to pay for flights using their Paypal account.
This is the latest in a long line of Ryanair passenger improvements, including allocated seating, a second free cabin bag, a new website and app and a dedicated family service, with a tailored business product set to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs said: “Millions of European consumers use PayPal on a daily basis and as Europe’s biggest airline, Ryanair is pleased to launch our new partnership, offering our 86m customers even more ways to book and pay for Europe’s lowest air fares on the Ryanair.com website.
Our partnership with PayPal is the latest element of our Always Getting Better programme and our commitment to the continued improvement of our customer experience, and follows the introduction of allocated seating, a free second carry-on bag, reduced fees, a new website, a new app and mobile boarding passes and our Ryanair Family Extra service. We will next unveil our tailored business product, as we continue to offer so much more than just the lowest fares.”
PayPal’s Vice President for Global Operations Europe, Middle East and Africa, Louise Phelan said: “Ryanair revolutionised low fare air travel in Europe. As the pioneer of faster, safer online payments, PayPal is delighted to help Ryanair develop its customer experience by making it even easier and quicker for travellers to book and pay for their flights online. With our 152 million active accounts across the world, we’re also making it easier for businesses such as Ryanair to expand their international sales.”
