Tui UK to stop screenscraping of Ryanair.com
Ryanair has announced that Tui UK has agreed to stop unauthorised screenscraping of the Ryanair website in settlement of legal proceedings filed against it.
Ryanair welcomed Tui’s decision and confirmed that it is now reviewing legal proceedings against Thomas Cook after it was revealed that the latter – which it describes as “unauthorised screenscraping ticket-touts” – was charging a fictitious £40 “fuel surcharge” and “falsely inflating airfares” to consumers buying Ryanair tickets.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said, “This is another victory for Ryanair and consumers. Ryanair will continue to fight against screenscraper sites who resell Ryanair flights with hidden charges and fictitious fuel surcharges. Ryanair will continue to pursue unlawful and misleading ticket-touts in the courts in the interest of our passengers.”
