Ryanair is winding down its package holiday division, Ryanair Holidays, just two years after it launched.
The budget carrier debuted the platform dubbed “the Amazon of travel” in December 2016, pledging to “transform the package holiday market”.
However, a statement posted quietly on its website on Monday (January 14) read: “Ryanair Holidays is discontinuing its service.”
All existing bookings will be honoured, and the airline has set up helplines to support customers.
The statement continued: “Going forward, it is no longer possible to book a package on Ryanair Holidays.
“However, all previous bookings are unaffected and will be fulfilled as planned.
“If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly service team.”
