Ryanair’s Business Plus Fare is now available to travel agents through the Amadeus GDS.

The fare includes a checked bag (up to 44 pounds), airport check-in, a premium seat with extra legroom or a fast exit, priority boarding, priority access to security checks (in airports that have this service) and ticket changes without fees.

According to Amadeus, agents are booking more low-cost carriers via the GDS — the first three quarters of 2015 saw a 16.3% increase in low-cost carrier bookings by travel agencies compared with the prior year.
