Ryanair today launched its new mobile app, allowing passengers to use their smartphone to book flights, check-in and as an electronic boarding pass.
The app, which is available in English, Italian and Spanish, is available to download onto both iPhone and Android devices.
Passengers can search and book Ryanair routes; select and book allocated seats; manage bookings and add baggage; book hotels and car hire; book optional insurance; check-in; download mobile boarding passes; and view live flight information.
Boarding passes will be accessible offline, and one device can be used to carry multiple passes. Travellers will still be required to check-in online before their scheduled departure.
Ryanair has warned that a small number of airports they fly to don't offer mobile check-in services. These airports will be listed on the airline's website.
Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair's chief marketing officer, said: "We've worked hard to develop a product which we're proud of and which will make travelling with Ryanair even better.
"Our customers can expect regular app updates that will make it an even more useful travel tool."
Earlier this month, the Irish carrier revealed further details of its new corporate tickets aimed at business travellers (see news, July 2).
