Irish low-cost Ryanair continues to support its policy of refusing intermediation, categorically opposing the sale of its flights via online travel agencies. According to the Irish daily The Irish Independentit is now the turn of Booking which uses the acquisition of eTraveli to “illegally” access the Ryanair website, without being authorized to do so.

This escalates a dispute that began in 2020, when Ryanair sued Booking Holdings and its subsidiaries (Booking.com, Agoda, Priceline and Kayak) for offering the airline’s services on their respective websites, but at a lower price. pupil.

That’s why the airline asked the court to be allowed to sue Booking CEO Glenn Fogel for “unauthorized and intentional access to Ryanair’s IT systems.”

Controversial Michael O’Leary’s airline also plans to bring Kayak CEO Steve Hafner and Agoda CEO Omri Morgenshtern to court, as well as other Booking and Kayak executives.
