Ryanair is renewing its ‘Ryanair Rooms’ offering using Expedia Group’s white label template technology.
The arrangement allows passengers with the budget carrier to book a hotel with their flight and access Expedia’s AI-powered virtual agent customer service tool.
Dedicated sites in Ireland and UK open this month, followed by a phased introduction to additional markets next year.
The deal is one of a series of new and expanded travel partnerships with airlines across Europe, including Icelandair, Turkish Airlines and Iberia.
Expedia is also expanding its car rental offerings in Europe through a number of new partnerships.
Expedia for Business president Ariane Gorin said: “This wide range of new and expanded partnerships demonstrates the strength and resilience of travel demand in Europe, as well as our ability to power partners of all sizes.
“Our partners benefit from our expanded European footprint with new ways to connect to high spending global travellers, and access to our cutting-edge B2B technology solutions and our industry-leading advertising solutions.”
