Ryanair Continues To Ramp Up Ahead of the Summer…
For Ryanair, it remains clear that the growth opportunities are endless, and are taking advantage of this, especially through its 737 MAX 200 Gamechanger aircraft.
As more units of the type continue to be delivered, this level of fleet growth encourages more route growth moving forward.
All eyes will be on the carrier moving forward to see whether the carrier will order more units of the type and how much further they can take this exponential route growth across Europe.
The Irish low-cost carrier will definitely be one to look out for going into the future.
