Wizz Air and Ryanair reported signs of travel recovery in April from a slump a year ago as the pandemic took hold.
Hungarian budget carrier Wizz Air flew 565,000 passengers last month against 78,382 in April 2020.
However, the airline operated just 22% of its capacity with a load factor of 59%.
New offshoot Wizz Air Abu Dhabi started flying to Tel Aviv with frequency rising to a daily service from this month.
New routes to Belgrade and Sohag and Luxor in Egypt were also announced.
Ryanair’s April carryings rose to 1 million from just 40,000 a year earlier with a 67% load factor as Covid-19 continued to impact traffic.
The airline operated more than 8,000 flights in the month.
The low cost airline’s rolling annual carryings were down 79% to 135.1 million in the 12 months to April.
