They may not be operating hugely profitably and there is a long tricky winter ahead of sky-high fuel prices, but two of Europe’s leading budget airlines are now flying more passengers than they did before the pandemic.

Flight selling platform Etraveli Group has announced a partnership with Ryanair, Europe’s largest airline by passenger numbers.

This collaboration signifies Etraveli Group’s inclusion in Ryanair’s network of “Approved OTAs,” granting direct API access to Ryanair’s extensive flight inventory.

This strategic agreement enhances Etraveli Group’s world-leading offering, providing customers and partners with seamless access to Ryanair’s competitively priced flights. It also enables the creation of Virtual Interlining itineraries, connecting travellers between Ryanair and other airlines as part of Etraveli Group’s comprehensive air content offering. As part of this “Approved OTA” partnership, Etraveli Group will integrate Ryanair’s flights via a direct API connection, ensuring faster and more efficient flight booking services.

Johan Elwin, CCO of Etraveli Group, expressed his enthusiasm: “We are excited to partner with Ryanair and look very much forward to this collaboration. This partnership not only strengthens our position but also benefits our customers by providing them with seamless access to Ryanair’s extensive network. It aligns with our ambition to offer the world’s best air content to our customers and partners both in and outside Europe. By leveraging our advanced tech solutions, including Virtual Interlining, we aim to enhance the travel experience and drive the future of air travel.”

Ryanair, known for its extensive network of 240+ destinations and low fares, has consistently topped Europe’s airline charts. In 2023, Ryanair remained the largest airline group in Europe by passenger volume, with 184 million passengers, reinforcing its pivotal role in the aviation industry. This partnership allows Etraveli Group to leverage Ryanair’s market strength, enhancing service offerings for millions of travellers in Europe, North and South America, and across Asia.

Dara Brady, Ryanair’s CMO, commented: “We are pleased to announce our latest ‘Approved OTA’ partnership with Etraveli Group and its OTA brands, including MyTrip, Gotogate, and Flightnetwork. This partnership will enable Etraveli Group’s customers to book Ryanair’s low-fare flights with the guarantee of full price transparency and full access to their booking. We look forward to working with Etraveli Group over the years to come and carrying their customers onboard our market-leading network of Ryanair flights.”
