Head Of Ryanair Says Company Expects To Be Operating At Pre-Covid Levels In Most Countries Except Ireland Within Next Two Months
The head of Ryanair says the company expects to be operating at pre-Covid levels in most countries within the next two months – except Ireland.
The airline’s moving up to a fifth of its Irish capacity to other European bases where aviation has recovered faster.
Michael O’Leary has accused the Irish government of not having a plan for reviving the sector.
He says 60 new aircraft are being delivered this summer – with none being allocated to Ireland:
“We were operating in August, probably at about 75% of pre-COVID volumes. How soon can we get back to 90% or 100% pre-Covid volumes? We think that in most markets with the notable exception of Ireland, we will be back there by about September or October.”
