In the past few weeks, customers have increasingly booked tickets. Management expects this trend to continue until Easter and summer next year. In the second quarter, Ryanair earned almost EUR 1.8 billion, almost 70 percent more than in the same period of the previous year. At the same time, Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary distanced himself from his previous forecast of a small annual loss or, at best, a result close to the zero line: The loss for the current financial year is now expected to be between 100 and 200 million euros by the end of March 2022. That depends mainly on the price development in winter.
If necessary, the management wants to boost ticket sales itself by lowering prices. The number of passengers for the year should now be more than 100 million, after 90 to 100 million previously.
