Ryanair will not honour screen-scraped bookings

Ryanair‘s ongoing battle with screen-scrapers has taken another twist this week, with the carrier saying it will “introduce new procedures to cancel all passenger bookings made through screen-scraping websites” starting next week.

The comments came in a statement from the airline confirming that had agreed to stop scraping the Ryanair site.

This follows an injunction in Germany against V-Tours for doing the same.

Howard Millar, the airline’s chief financial officer, said: “Ryanair is continuing to work with our software providers, Navitaire and Microsoft, to proactively eliminate screen-scraping of Ryanair’s website.”
