Leading low cost airline Ryanair has entered into a new partnership to allow it to offer passengers more than a mere point-to-point travel service.
While offering an extensive network of flights around Europe, the carrier has signed an agreement with ShuttleDirect to provide its passengers with private airport transfer booking options that allow them rapid access to their next departure point.
Thinking outside of the traditional destination network is also a feature of Clickair's thinking, with the Iberian budget airline recently launching an online multi-reservation initiative to go beyond point-to-point bookings and provide affordable combination flights in one booking.
Ryanair's head of ancillary revenue, Santina Doherty, said: "Ryanair's partnership with ShuttleDirect will make it even easier for our passengers to avoid those airport queues. Not only can passengers dodge check-in queues with our web check-in service, now they can pre-book private car, minibus, coach and shuttle services on Ryanair.com to get from door to door in record time."
The new booking options for private car, minibus, coach and shuttle services will be accessible through the Private Transfers section of the Ryanair.com website, and will serve some 50 airports in the carrier's network.
