Ryanair, Europe’s favourite airline, today (7 Dec) rejected claims made by eDreams that Ryanair was preventing online travel agencies (OTA) from providing consumers with the lowest fares, and re-iterated that it will continue with legal proceedings launched against eDreams and Google in the Irish High Courts last week.
Ryanair confirmed that it has a number of agreements in place with OTAs across Europe, providing a standard API to each of its online partners enabling them to legitimately connect into the Ryanair low fares website. Ryanair already has agreements in place with:
Ryanair allows and encourages price comparison websites to display Ryanair fares in the interests of consumers and price transparency, in exchange for an annual charitable donation of €100, which allows these legitimate sites to compare Ryanair’s guaranteed low fares against those of high fare airlines.
Ryanair’s CMO Kenny Jacobs said:
“eDreams’ claim that Ryanair is trying to prevent consumers from accessing Europe’s lowest fares is completely untrue. Ryanair has a number of agreements currently in place with a range of websites, all of whom have signed agreements offered to them by Ryanair – something eDreams refuses to do. The High Court action is proceeding as planned and we will continue to work on behalf of consumers until eDreams’ deceptive practices are fully eradicated.”
