Ryanair passenger numbers rise in June


Ryanair’s passenger numbers rose by half a million last month due to increased demand for summer holidays.

yanair carried a total of 15.9 million passengers in June, compared to 15.4 million in the previous month.

It was also a 208 percent increase from June 2021, when the low-cost airline reported a total of 5.3 million passengers.

The airline operated over 88,400 flights in June, up slightly from May as the summer season continues. Ryanair reported a load factor of 95 per cent for the month, up 3 per cent from May.

At mid-year, Ryanair passenger numbers now stand at 134.5 million, a 283 percent increase compared to the first six months of 2021.

Despite the increased appetite for travel, passengers continue to struggle with disruptions at the airport. Last weekend, airport officials in Paris forced the cancellation of a number of flights, with promises more would follow later this month.

Ryanair cabin crew based in Spain also announced plans for a 12-day strike in July.

In an interview with Britain’s Daily Telegraph last month, Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary said any strike action will affect “less than 1 per cent” of Ryanair’s European operations, with crew earning between £24,000 and £45,000.

“The vast majority of people are happy to have a job and are happy to be back to work even after Covid,” he said.

“Everyone can afford to pay their rent. This notion that people get minimum wage or don’t get paid if they don’t fly – that’s total bullshit.”

Staff shortages at airports worldwide, from Toronto to Dublin, have resulted in long queues and delays, while the rising number of Covid-19 cases has forced Aer Lingus to cancel a number of flights in recent days.
