TUI to package Ryanair flights in new partnership

TUI will now sell Ryanair flights as part of a new dynamic packaging deal.

The agreement means that TUI customers can take advantage of Ryanairs extensive network of low cost flights.

 TUI is Ryanair’s third approved OTA partner, alongside loveholidays and Kiwi, as the airline continues to demonstrate how OTAs can work transparently with airlines.

“The agreement we have now reached will create more travel options for our guests than ever before, said David Schelp, CEO Markets & Airlines, TUI Group.

In the UK in particular, our guests will be able to choose from an even wider range of flights in future – and furthermore to a strong program with TUI Airline’s own flights.”

The move is the latest in Ryanair’s efforts to prevent “unauthorised OTA Pirates” from selling its products.

Ryanair stated that the partnership was agreed “on the condition that they do not overcharge customers for Ryanair products.”

Ryanair’s Dara Brady, said: “We are pleased to announce this partnership with TUI, which will enable TUI customers to now book Ryanair flights, seats, and bags as part of their holiday package with the guarantee that they will have full price transparency of Ryanair products, and that they will receive any information regarding their flight directly from Ryanair as well as having direct access to their booking through their myRyanair account.

“This deal separates TUI from the OTA Pirates who continue to dupe and scam consumers by unlawfully screenscraping Ryanair’s website and mis-selling our flights with egregious hidden mark-ups and overcharges.”

Peter Krüger, Chief Strategy Officer & Chief Executive Officer Holiday Experiences, TUI Group, said that the new agreement would provide greater digitalisation of the business segments for the company.

He stated: “The cooperation with Ryanair will now further expand the range of dynamically packaged TUI holidays and at the same time achieve a further milestone in digitalization.

“In addition, the cooperation also contributes to our growth strategy – the aim is to achieve additional growth through more products and new guests.”
