Ryanair to offer feed to Aer Lingus flights

Ryanair to offer connecting services for Aer Lingus
Ryanair should be offering connecting services to IAG-owned Aer Lingus flights within the year.
Negotiations are already underway to link up the Irish rival airlines’ flights, Ryanair’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said at the Phocuswright Europe conference in Dublin yesterday.
“(We’re) doing a deal with Aer Lingus and doing connections with Aer Lingus. We would be very surprised if there weren’t connections within the next 12 months.”
The low-cost carrier has no plans to join an alliance, he added, while plans to improve its website and apps mean it has no intention of working more closely with travel agents.
“I think the consumer has become more savvy from better information out there and I think that’s reduced the service that a travel agent provides,” he said. “If you’re going to a complicated place then you need someone to package it up.”
He also urged Google and eDreams to step down in the long-running battle over the indirect selling of its product, especially with 70% of people believing they are on a Ryanair site when they book via the third party.
