This week saw Ryanair report a 9% increase in traffic numbers compared to the same period last year as the carrier continues its growth plans.
Whilst load factors remain unchanged, its monthly and yearly numbers have changed significantly, especially as Summer 2023 demand remains solid.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Ryanair’s Numbers for June and for the Year…
For June 2023, Ryanair handled 17.4 million passengers, which is 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.
Significant 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.
Overall, it remains clear that Ryanair is pushing ahead as much as it can, especially if it means that it can hit over the 200 million passenger mark, which is expected to be achieved over the next few years.
