Ryanair Holidays rolling out across all markets – 3,4,5 star hotels
Ryanair Rooms – more partners and more choice

Auto check-in – for both flights once return seats are booked
In London, Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs said:
“The success of the “Always Getting Better” programme over the past 3 years has been reflected in ever increasing load factors and record passenger numbers, which has seen our traffic grow by over 50%. In a year when Ryanair became Europe’s largest airline, carrying 120m customers and Ryanair.com became the world’s most visited airline website, we are pleased to launch Year 4 of AGBtoday, with an exciting range of initiatives in digital, product and ancillary.
As we expand the Ryanair route network, customers will for the first time be able to book connecting Ryanair flights on the Ryanair.com website, with a feeder flight service with other airlines following later this year. While we continue to innovate, the one thing that won’t change will be our low fares, and European customers will still enjoy the biggest and best choice of destinations, with the most on-time flights and a fantastic onboard experience, as we grow our fleet, traffic and routes.”
