Ryanair, Europe’s No 1 airline, today (17 May) launched its first connecting flights through Rome Fiumicino Airport, providing Ryanair customers with an expanded route choice, and the opportunity to book and transfer directly onto connecting Ryanair flights for the first time.
From today, Ryanair customers can:
- Browse connecting Rome Fiumicino flight options on the Ryanair.com website
- Book connecting flights on an initial 10 routes operating to/from Rome Fiumicino (with more to follow)
- Connect to/from Alicante, Barcelona, Bari, Brussels, Catania, Comiso, Malta & Palermo via Rome
- Transfer ‘airside’ onto connecting flights without having to go ‘landside’
- Have checked-in baggage transferred through to the next flight to their final destination
- Receive one booking reference for both flight bookings
This connecting flights service is the newest initiative delivered under Year 4 of Ryanair’s “Always Getting Better” programme, with more connecting flights services to be rolled out across the entire Ryanair network later this year as long as the Rome Fiumicino trial proves to be a success.
Ryanair’s Chief Commercial Officer David O’Brien said:
“Ryanair is pleased to launch our first connecting flights service via Rome Fiumicino Airport, allowing customers to book connecting Ryanair flights on the lowest fares in Europe. Starting with an initial 10 Rome routes, customers will be able to transfer onto their next flight without having to go landside, and have their bags checked through to their final destination. This new service under Year 4 of our “Always Getting Better” programme, will be rolled out across the entire Ryanair network, (with further Rome routes to be added in the coming weeks and months) as long as the Rome Fiumicino trial proves to be a success. We are also continuing our discussions with Aer Lingus and Norwegian – and other potential partners – with a view to launching connections with third party airlines later this year.”
