The Dublin-based company attributed the “very strong" growth (gross values), among other factors, to what it called "operating reliability", the recovery of passenger travel and the increase in air fares during the holiday season.

Ryanair indicates in a statement that it transported 91.1 million passengers in the first half of 2022 - 143% more than last year - which, it says, "confirms" the recovery of the sector affected by the health crisis.

Ticket prices increased by 7% in this (fiscal) period, and in July and August the increase was 14% - compared to 2021 values ​​- which "compensated" for the drop seen during the first quarter marked year for the war in Ukraine.
