It is expected that more announcements will be made by Ryanair in the coming weeks ahead.

As we approach the Summer 2024 period, this is the area in which the airline seeks to succeed strongly.

Having a successful Summer will set the low-cost carrier up for the rest of the year thereafter.

This is on the scale of increased passenger numbers, but also revenue and profitability.

Things continue to go very strongly for Ryanair, with the latest passenger figures a good example of that.

As we get closer and closer to the Summer season, all eyes will be on the airline’s overall performance.

To achieve 300m passengers per annum by the 2030s, the Irish low-cost carrier will continue to expand in Europe.

But for now, let’s see how their 2024 performs, moving forward.
