Ryanair Schools Travel Granted Irish Travel Agent’s Licence. New Service Will Allow School Groups To Book The Lowest Fares

25 May 2016

Ryanair, Ireland’s favourite airline, today (25 May) announced that its new Ryanair Schools Travel service has been granted a travel agent’s licence by the Commission for Aviation Regulation, ahead of its launch in September, which will make it even easier for schools and teachers to book low fare school trips via the Ryanair.com website.

Launching as part of Year 3 of Ryanair’s “Always Getting Better” programme, Ryanair’s new bonded Schools Travel service will include a dedicated booking platform and support team, offering Irish schools more choice and the lowest prices, helping both schools and parents save money by booking directly with Ryanair. 

Ryanair’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs said:

"As the largest airline in Europe, carrying 116m customers this year, including thousands of schools groups, no one is better placed to offer a dedicated Schools Travel service than Ryanair and we are pleased that the CAR has granted a travel agent’s licence.

Ryanair Schools Travel, which will launch in September, will enable schools to book and manage their own trips on a new booking platform, with the support of our dedicated schools travel team, while saving millions of euro with Ryanair's low fares, which are only available with Ryanair, with the biggest route network in Europe to choose from, ensuring a better choice and better service.

It is good news for parents and schools as they can save money when they book their travel directly with Ryanair, enjoy special school discounts and ensure their tour group sits together on the flight.”
