Ryanair signals European travel recovery

Ryanair improved passenger carryings in May as Covid vaccines saw the start of European travel recovery.

Europe’s largest low fare airline flew 1.8 million passengers last month against just 70,000 in the same period in 2020.

Numbers were up from one million passengers carried in April.

The airline operated more than 12,000 flights in May with a 79% load factor.

However, its rolling annual passenger total was down by 75% to 30.2 million from 121 million at the same point in 2020.
