Ryanair has said it hopes to start feeding passengers into the Aer Lingus network from early next year.
The airline’s Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said Ryanair had hoped to introduce an integrated system enabling customers to buy long haul tickets with Aer Lingus earlier this year.
Speaking at a press conference at the Web Summit in Lisbon, he said Ryanair now anticipates this starting during the first half of 2018.
Mr Jacobs said Ryanair hoped to be able to offer flights from other carriers in the IAG stable and said it was happy to work with any airline.
They also announced a new event ticketing website, a newly improved Ryanair Rooms site and app, a dedicated Chinese language platform and the addition of connecting flights from Porto.
Porto is the third city after Rome and Milan/Bergamo where Ryanair offers connecting flights.
