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…
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:
|Date||2019 Numbers||2022 Numbers||2023 Numbers||Percentage Difference (2023 vs. 2022)|
|April 11-18||2391 movements||2661 movements||2951 movements||+10.90%|
|April 18-25||2369 movements||2759 movements||2936 movements||+6.42%|
|April 25-May 2||2368 movements||2724 movements||2942 movements||+8.00%|
|May 2-9||2322||2761 movements||2954 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.
