Ryanair launches new app for booking flights
RYANAIR continued its drive to be more customer-friendly, with chief executive Michael O'Leary launching a new mobile phone app that may some day eliminate the need for paper boarding passes.
The new and improved version of the company's smartphone app offers passengers a scannable digital boarding pass, making Ryanair the first Irish airline to offer the service.
Mr O'Leary predicted that the introduction of electronic boarding passes will "revolutionise the way people travel and interact with Ryanair".
The app is available for iPhone and Android users, and will allow passengers to check-in and board flights without having to print paper passes.
Mr O'Leary said at the launch in Dublin yesterday: "You can book a flight on the Ryanair app in less than 100 seconds, and it's going to be the way I think people increasingly will check the Ryanair flights, check pricing and make bookings."
