- Ryanair add another airline for first time
- First step to becoming the Amazon of travel
Ryanair customers will now be able to book Air Malta flights on ryanair.com in a new flight partnership between the two airlines.
The carrier offers flights on 21 routes from Malta to eight different countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, including Russia.
It’s the latest tie-in following the move in March 2017 allowing passengers on Ryanair’s website to book 20 Air Europa long haul routes from Madrid to 16 countries in North, Central and South America.
“We are pleased to announce this exciting partnership with Air Malta, which allows our 139m customers to browse and book flights on 21 new routes from Malta to exciting cities in Austria, Czechia, Israel, Morocco, Russia, Switzerland, Tunisia and Ukraine, in addition to over 300 existing destinations available on the Ryanair.com website, the world’s largest travel website, which receives over 50m unique visitors every month,” Ryanair CCO David O’Brien said in Malta.
He said that the partnership is the latest enhancement “as we continue our journey to becoming the ‘Amazon of travel.’ Ryanair offers 53 routes to/from Malta, and now our customers can enjoy even more routes, making Ryanair.com the ideal choice for families, leisure travel and business customers.”
Air Malta’s Chairman Dr Charles Mangion said: “This is a landmark agreement were both airlines are cooperating together for the benefit of their mutual customers. Over the last year Air Malta has made significant improvements not only to expand its network of destinations with more frequencies and destinations but also changing its product in terms of fare structure and onboard service. This agreement will also help Air Malta increase its visibility in overseas markets and tap into new revenue streams. We look forward to further cooperation between the two airlines for the benefit of our clients.”
Dr Konrad Mizzi, Malta’s Minister for Tourism said: “This strategic initiative is an important development which will give Air Malta access to a new sales channel. This partnership will further accelerate Air Malta’s growth strategy and ambitions.”
