New figures indicate that bookings for flights within Europe slipped during the week that ended on June 20 following a period of strong growth.
As reported by The Irish Times, figures from Bank of America's sky tracker indicate that bookings for flights within Europe during the week that ended on June 20 were 48% of the same week in 2019, which marked a decrease from the 52% of 2019 levels that was reached during the week that ended on June 13.
However, Bank of America's data reportedly indicated that website activity continued to grow, increasing five percentage points to 72% of 2019 levels, suggesting that increasing numbers of European residents are planning to fly.
Bank of America reportedly noted that Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary said that booking recovery was strong.
