Ryanair: ‘Passengers with boarding pass issued by Kiwi.com will regrettably be refused boarding’

    Ryanair announced (18-Aug-2021) “any Ryanair passenger with a Boarding Pass issued by Kiwi.com will regrettably be refused boarding” from 18-Aug-2021. The LCC noted “under EU regulation 2015/1998, it is mandatory that passengers complete the Ryanair check-in process directly to ensure passengers are informed of all safety and regulatory protocols required when travelling”, adding: “Kiwi.com circumvent these essential aviation regulations by issuing their own boarding cards which are not valid on Ryanair flights”. Ryanair stated it “urges customers to only book direct on the Ryanair website or app and avoid booking via third party agents, such as Kiwi.com, who do not have authorisation to sell Ryanair flights or to issue Boarding Passes”.
