Did you know that Ryanair operates close to 3,000 flights per week? Data from RadarBox.com shows the airline is less than 20 movements away from this.

As the airline gets further into the Summer 2023 season, new routes will be launching soon, which will enable the carrier to bust past the 3,000 weekly flight milestone.

Without further ado, let’s get into the numbers…

Ryanair Less Than 20 Movements Away from 3,000 Weekly Flights…

Data provided by RadarBox.com.

For May 9-16, Ryanair operated 2,981 flights, based on a seven-day rolling average provided by the flight tracking company.

This represents a 6.31% increase compared to the same period last year, where 2,804 flights were operated.

Such a figure is around 652 movements higher than in the same period in 2019.

Below is data from the last four weeks that the flight tracking company has monitored on Ryanair:

Date2019 Numbers2022 Numbers2023 NumbersPercentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)
April 11-182391 movements2661 movements2951 movements+10.90%
April 18-252369 movements2759 movements2936 movements+6.42%
April 25-May 22368 movements2724 movements2942 movements+8.00%
May 2-923222761 movements2954 movements+6.99%

What the data shows is that Ryanair continues to grow its movement numbers at a steady pace, with this expected to rise even further over the Summer 2023 season.

With new routes on the UK domestic front opening up, too, this will no doubt help the airline creep up into the 3,000 flights mark.

However, with French ATC strikes continuing to affect the carrier, it will be interesting to see whether they can hit that figure or not.

For now, all eyes are on Ryanair to see when indeed they will hit that milestone.
