Ryanair bosses have raised their full-year results prediction to correlate with an anticipated boost in bookings over the summer months.
Despite a loss of €273million in the first quarter, traffic rebounded from half a million to 8.1 million throughout May and June.
The airline has boosted its flight offering, and is reporting success throughout Europe thanks to the EU’s Digital Covid Certificate and even says UK travel is on the rise.
“We’ve seen a huge surge in bookings over the past number of weeks and indeed even in the UK we have seen a large rise in bookings although there is a little bit of uncertainty there,” said Neil Sorhan, Ryanair’s chief financial officer.
The airline continues to offer its “zero flight change fee” policy for customers who are impacted by changing travel rules.
“We know your plans may change, so we’ve dropped our flight change fees for all new bookings made before 30 September 2021, for travel before 31 December 2021.
“You can now make up to two flight changes for travel by 31 December 2021,” states the Ryanair website.
