Ryanair, Spain’s No.1 airline, today (22 March) announced the extension of its flight partnership with Air Europa. From today, Ryanair’s 130m customers can browse and book Air Europa connecting flights from 15 European cities to Madrid and onward to 16 countries in North, Central and South America, including Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico and the United States – all on the Ryanair.com website.

This extension to the successful Air Europa partnership is the latest initiative delivered under Ryanair’s “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme.

The next phase of this Air Europa partnership will be launched later this year and will allow Ryanair customers to connect onto Air Europa long haul flights through Madrid. Ryanair is continuing its discussions with a number of other long haul airlines on potential feed and connecting flight partnerships.

Ryanair CMO Kenny Jacobs said:

“Ryanair is pleased to extend our partnership with Air Europa. Millions of customers can now book Air Europa flights from over 15 European cities to Madrid, and onwards to more than 20 long-haul destinations across the Americas.

This connecting flights service on www.ryanair.com, operated by Air Europa, is the latest initiative under our ‘Always Getting Better Programme’ and is an extension of the successful partnership with Air Europa which we launched last year, and which we hope will continue for many years.

To celebrate this expanded service, Ryanair have seats for sale across our network from just €14.99 for travel in April which are available for booking until midnight Friday (23 Mar). Since these amazing low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”

Globalia Group CEO Javier Hidalgo said:

“We are satisfied with the partnership's successful development which has placed Air Europa at the forefront and has significantly strengthened its competitiveness in the sector.

We continue to renew our fleet. Both long-haul, with the incorporation of the new Boeing 787-9, the most efficient plane in existence today; and middle and short haul with the progressive arrival of three new Boeing 737-800 this year. Air Europa has one of the most modern and young fleets in the world and has made them available to all the Irish airline's clients, offering them the best value for money in flights.”
