Air Europa has signed a deal with Ryanair, which makes the Spanish airline’s long-haul flights available for booking on the Irish carrier’s website.

It gives Air Europa unprecedented visibility among the low-cost carrier’s 130 million customers. From today, Ryanair customers can now book flights on Ryanair.com to Air Europa’s 20 long-haul routes from Madrid to destinations in North, Central and South America. These include Lima, Bogota, Havana, Buenos Aires, and newly introduced San Pedro Sula in Honduras.

The airline has six Dreamliners in operation on long-haul routes, with 16 more on order. Future plans between the two airlines include the ability to book Air Europa’s direct Spanish domestic and European flights to those destinations not already covered by Ryanair.

This tie-up will also double Air Europa’s connectivity in Europe by adding an additional 53 cities on the Ryanair route network.

In addition, it paves the way for customers to book connecting flights from Europe via Madrid to Air Europa’s long-haul destination on a single ticket, with luggage checked all the way through.
