Ryanair and PayPal partner to offer easy online payment option

European airline Ryanair has teamed up with online payment processor PayPal to offer an easy online payment option to customers, business travelers, travel agents and corporate travel departments for booking and paying for the lowest fares on its website.

Ryanair’s 86 million customers can now pay for Ryanair flights using their PayPal account, thereby benefiting from faster bookings of tickets.

PayPal global operations Europe, Middle East and Africa vice president Louise Phelan said: “As the pioneer of faster, safer online payments, PayPal is delighted to help Ryanair develop its customer experience by making it even easier and quicker for travellers to book and pay for their flights online.

“With our 152 million active accounts across the world, we’re also making it easier for businesses such as Ryanair to expand their international sales.”

The partnership forms part of the long line of Ryanair’s customer improvements, which include allocated seating, a second free cabin bag, a new website and app and a dedicated family service, in addition to a tailored business product set to be unveiled in the near future.

Ryanair chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: “Millions of European consumers use PayPal on a daily basis and as Europe’s biggest airline, Ryanair is pleased to launch our new partnership, offering our 86m customers even more ways to book and pay for Europe’s lowest air fares on the Ryanair.com website.”
