RYANAIR estimates it will carry between 26 and 30 million passengers between April 2020 and March 2021
On 7 January 2021, RYANAIR has presented the new traffic forecasts for fiscal year 21, which will end on 31 March 2021. Between April 2020 and March 2021, RYANAIR estimates that it will carry between 26 and 30 million passengers. We remind you that RYANAIR carried over 140 million passengers between April 2019 and March 31, 2020.
In December 2020, RYANAIR carried 1.9 million passengers, decreasing by 83% compared to the same period of the previous year. The loading rate of the aircraft was 73%.
The largest low-cost carrier in Europe is downgrading its forecasts for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021. Due to new restrictive travel measures imposed by the United Kingdom and Ireland, but also by other European countries, RYANAIR is forced to reduce the number of scheduled flights in January, February and March 2021.
For January 2021, RYANAIR estimates that it will carry a maximum of 1.25 million passengers, while for February and March 2021 estimates show a maximum of 500 passengers carried.
All customers affected by these flight cancellations and additional travel restrictions will receive emails with related information about their rights to reschedule on other flights and / or opt for refunds.
Ryanair is also calling on the governments of Ireland and the United Kingdom to speed up the vaccination process for citizens. In a statement issued today, January 7, RYANAIR asked the Dublin authorities for an explanation of how it is possible for Denmark to vaccinate 40 people out of a population of 000 million, and Ireland has vaccinated only 5 people for a similar population.
