Times are very busy for Ryanair, who continue to put out multiple announcements every week regarding routes.

Just this week, as well as the service expansions into Pisa, Ibiza, Palma & Menorca, we have seen the following:

It highlights exactly that Ryanair aim to achieve maximum growth wherever possible.

However, they do have challenges to contend with.

They are expecting capacity constraints by the end of June 2024.

This is due to delays to deliveries of their Boeing 737 MAX 8200 aircraft, where only 40 of the 57 will be received.

Furthermore, despite this, they are managing to make things work significantly well.

It remains clear that we will see plenty more of announcements from Ryanair in the weeks ahead.

Route expansion continues to be a priority for the Irish low-cost carrier in order to take advantage of upcoming busy demand.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the overall performance throughout the Summer 2024 season, a busy period for them.
