Irish low-cost giant Ryanair has announced that it will put 20.7 million seats on sale within the UK, for the coming Winter 2023 season. The announcement comes together with the company’s recently announced Winter schedule, marking their biggest ever schedule for the UK region.

Ready, Steady, Fly!

20.7 million seats are now on sale through Ryanair’s official website, following the company’s release of the 2023/2024 winter network for the UK. The network is aimed for the UK’s holidaymakers looking to soak up some winter sun, either solo or with friends and family.

The flights on the newly released network will operate first in October, and last until the end of March 2024.

Among the schedule are offers for popular ski destinations, Christmas market, seasonal shopping, city escape and winter sun destinations. Fares start at a low of £29.99.

On the major seat sale, Ryanair’s Dara Brady, said: “We’ve received a huge volume Winter ’23 schedule requests from early bird customers looking to get ahead of the flock and book a Ryanair flight for their Winter ’23 getaways.”

“Whether looking to soak up some with sun, hit the slopes or enjoy the festive season in one of Europe’s breath-takingly beautiful cities, you won’t be disappointed with the unbeatable selection of top ski, Christmas market, seasonal shopping, and winter sun destinations we have on offer at the lowest fares in Europe.”

“To celebrate the launch of our biggest ever Winter schedule, Ryanair has launched a special seat sale with fares available from just £29.99 only at Ryanair.com.”


Increase in June

As previously reported by AviationSource, June 2023 proved successful for Ryanair as it handled 17.4 million passengers; an increase of 9% compared to the same period in 2022.

As mentioned, load factors remain unchanged at 95%, with the airline being able to hold that figure for quite some time now consistently.

With respect to the whole year, this means that Ryanair is at 173.4 million passengers, which is a positive change of 29% compared to the same period last year.

Load factors have increased by eight percentage points to 94% from 86%, which is highlighting a significant rise in demand over the last 12 months.

Milestones reached

In the last week or so, Ryanair has achieved two big milestones regarding its operations within the United Kingdom.

The first came on June 26 when it was revealed that they had been operating out of Newcastle Airport for 20 years and had handled 60 million passengers during that time.

As another milestone, Ryanair celebrated its 15th anniversary of base operations out of Bournemouth, following its inaugural flight there from Dublin in 1996.
