Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair announced an agreement with Amadeus Travel Platform with the aim to expand its low-fare corporate travel.

Amadeus’ B2B customer base can now book within a network of over 3,000 daily flights to over 235 destinations across 36 countries.

According to Ryanair’s 2022 annual report, they support unrivalled customer support with 90% on-time performance and aim to carry over 185 million customers in FY2023.

Ryanair’s Dara Brady highlighted the high-performance capabilities of Ryanair and how these will benefit the Amadeus platform: “We are pleased to now be live on the Amadeus Travel platform with Ryanair’s unrivalled network of over 3,000 flights to over 235 destinations, further expanding Ryanair’s corporate travel offering and enabling corporate customers greater access to our market-leading network of routes, high frequencies, on-time performance and unbeatable low-cost fares.

We look forward to working with Amadeus over the coming years as Ryanair grows to carry 225m passengers annually by FY26.”

This agreement is following on from a previous partnership between Amadeus and Ryanair from 2014-2017.

For both Ryanair and Amadeus’ travel agency partners, the use of cutting-edge technology created especially for low-cost carriers simplifies operations.

Jose-Luis Aragon, regional VP of air distribution Europe, Amadeus added how the technologies are allowing for a more systematic travel system: “We are very happy that Ryanair has chosen to capitalize on Amadeus’ technology to support its distribution strategy.

“With the integration of its content to the Amadeus Travel Platform, travel sellers and corporations will have a broader choice of travel options while benefiting from smooth and seamless integration into their everyday tools and processes.”

Along with the benefits of Ryanair’s leading industry punctuality and company growth, it will also help Amadeus manage their carbon footprint with the lowest CO² emissions per passenger/km of any major European airline.

This is an achievement underpinned by Ryanair’s Pathway to Net Zero by 2050 decarbonisation strategy.

Additionally, Michael O’Leary, Group CEO highlighted in the 2022 sustainability report the progress Ryanair has made in sustainability: “Over the last year, under the leadership of Thomas Fowler, our Director of Sustainability and Finance, we have made significant progress on our sustainability ambitions.

This was independently recognised by the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), giving us a B rating and Sustainalytics ranking us the no.1-rated large cap airline in the world and the no.1-rated airline in Europe.”
