Ryanair Holidays, the packaging service from the European low-cost carrier, has been closed after just two years in service.
Ryanair says it is no longer possible to book a package trip with Ryanair Holidays as it is discontinuing the service.
"All previous bookings are unaffected and will be fulfilled as planned," a statement says on the homepage for Ryanair Holidays.
The launch of Ryanair Holidays came in late-2016 and was positioned by the carrier as a significant step "on our journey to becoming the Amazon of air travel."
It closely followed the relaunch of airline's accommodation-only service, Ryanair Rooms, which started up again in October of the same year through Expedia Group-owned Hotels.com and Hotelopia, the consumer-facing wing of Hotelbeds.
However, Ryanair Holidays was beset with problems from the outset.
The service was taken taken offline at end of January 2017, just a month after its launch, due to what the airline claimed was "illegal screenscraping and mis-selling" of flights by the company powering it, LogiTravel.
The European low-cost carrier then enlisted the help (through an existing partner World2Meet) of German package travel specialist HLX Touristik to run the service on its behalf through a white label.
