Ryanair This summer, not only will it recover the capacity with which it flew before the pandemic, but its offer will be 15% higher than that of 2019 due to the increase in demand. A very different situation from what other airlines are suffering that have been forced to reduce their capacity due to lack of manpower.
This has been pointed out, Darrell Huguesdirector of personnel for the low-cost company, who explained that “Ryanair has done better than other airlines” and was prepared with its crews since last year, so it is not having problems due to the lack of personnel ahead of the summer of 2022.
According to Hugues, some airlines have been forced to reduce their capacity not only because of problems at the airports, but also due to the shortage of manpower in areas such as security filters, but above all because of the difficulties in being able to bring their workers back after two years of the pandemic.
The manager explained to Efe that he hopes that, in the coming weeks, the rest of the airlines will be able to be at 100% of their capacity and that there will also be fewer and fewer problems at European airports.
Ryanair exceeds pre-pandemic levels
The Irish low-cost airline maintains its forecast of transporting in the current fiscal year (from April to March) 165 million passengers throughout its flight network, 18% more compared to 140 million in 2019. In Spain, the Irish company estimates reaching 50 million passengers, 14% more than the 44 million it transported before the pandemic.
Raynair has 79 planes Based in Spain, it has 10 bases and operates more than 680 routes in 27 airports, to which this week it will add one more, Asturias.
The company expects a slight rising prices during the summer, between the months of July and September, due to the rise in fuel prices, although, as Hugues recalled, its impact is less in the case of Ryanair, as 80% of the fuel is insured at a cheaper price until March of 2023.
