Ryanair, the well-known low-cost carrier, has partnered with the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) since 2017 to offer students valuable discounts on flights and luggage. Studying abroad is an enriching experience, but it can also be financially challenging for many students. This partnership is designed to ease the financial burden and make international travel more accessible for students participating in the Erasmus program. As an ESNcard holder, you can enjoy discounts on flights and luggage, making your study abroad experience more affordable and enjoyable.

It’s worth noting that other airlines, such as KLM and Air France, also offer student discounts, they do not need an ESNcard but do have other requirements and do not have other requirements.
