We have to be sure that there is a system in place which is capable of handling heavy volumes of transactions and we are delighted that TNS were able to meet our demands.

Ryanair Flies High with TNS


Founded in 1985, Ryanair is Europe’s largest budget airlines with 44 bases, covering 1,100 low fare routes across 26 countries. Ryanair operates a fleet of 250 Boeing 737-800 aircrafts, has a team of more than 8,000 people and carries over 73 million passengers per year.

Business Challenge

Ryanair uses a central booking platform to handle customer’s flight reservations. However, the organisation was in need of a payments connectivity service provider that could deliver secure, fast and reliable connectivity for the online authorisation element of the booking.

The organisation required a payments system that could simplify the process of managing large, heavy volumes of traffic on a daily basis, which would allow customers to pay for flights with ease.


is a managed service providing a highly secure and scalable solution for the transport of sensitive card authorisations, giving Ryanair the flexibility to reach multiple acquirers via one solution. All transactions are routed through TNS’ private PCI DSS certified global backbone network, allowing Ryanair to benefit from a fast and reliable service for all online transactions. TNS’ proprietary resilient network provides end-to-end visibility and monitoring all the way through to the bank or processor, ensuring maximum uptime and availability.
