“This milestone partnership is great news for consumers as lastminute.com will now be authorised to offer Ryanair’s low-fare flights as part of their dynamic holiday packages and flights, putting them in stark contrast to the unauthorised OTAs who continue to overcharge customers with hidden mark-ups and provide fake customer contact and payment information to Ryanair.

“We look forward to working with lastminute.com and carrying their customers onboard our Ryanair flights throughout the years ahead.”

Lastminute.com chief executive Luca Concone added: “As the European Travel-Tech leader in Dynamic Holiday Packages, we know this partnership with Ryanair will grant flexibility, choice and value for customers looking for the best holidays and flights. 

“We look forward to working closely with Ryanair.”
