Budget airline Ryanair has closed its package holidays division, less than two years after a revamp.
The Irish carrier put a brief statement on its website on Monday afternoon saying: “Ryanair Holidays is discontinuing its service”.
In July 2017, Ryanair chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs told a Travel Weekly business breakfast that the carrier had plans for a “fairly big” package business.
The division had relaunched in the UK and Ireland in March that year with a new accommodation partner. It was initially launched in December 2016 and is also live in Germany, Italy and Spain.
A spokesman for Ryanair confirmed the holidays division had been closed and said the only available statement was that on its website, which added: “It is no longer possible to book a package on Ryanair Holidays. However, all previous bookings are unaffected and will be fulfilled as planned.”
