You can now book tickets to football matches through Ryanair's website

LONDON — Budget airline Ryanair is launching a ticket service which will allow its customers to book event tickets directly through its website.

The venture, launched with ticketing service Coras, will allow Ryanair’s 129 million registered customers to book tickets for football matches, gigs, and theatre shows on the website.

Customers can purchase tickets for all events in seven languages (English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese and Polish) and three currencies (Euro, Sterling and Złoty).

Ryanair is battling to regain its reputation following a crisis last month when it was forced to cancel thousands of flights due to a pilot rostering error.
