About Ryanair and Couchbase
Couchbase Mobile helped Ryanair increase their app performance and enhance their user experience. Ryanair was also able to overhaul their app experience without significant re-architecture to their existing app. Ryanair runs Couchbase on Amazon Web Services.
With Couchbase Mobile, Ryanair:
- Can easily manage Semi-Static Data
- Did not have to implement their own synchronization and storage solution
- Was able to integrate with existing Android and iOS apps without significant re-architecture
The mobile app experience is now faster and better:
- The booking process is 60%+ faster (slashed from over 5 minutes to under 2)
- Network traffic to drive bookings is 87% more efficient (reduced from 80 GB/day to 10 GB/day)
- The user experience is vastly improved, as evidenced by an increase in app store ratings.
Over the last 30 years, Ryanair has experienced exponential growth. Since we launched our new mobile app supported by Couchbase, we have increased app performance and decreased flight booking times from 5 minutes to 2 minutes. Couchbase Mobile has helped us achieve our user experience goals.Vladimir Atanosov Lead Developer at Ryanair
