Ryanair Has Record Week For Booking Numbers

Ryanair has announced that it smashed its weekly bookings record, taking over 3 million bookings in one week (for the next 20-week period) for the first time in its history. This new weekly 3 million bookings record is said to be a direct result of Ryanair’s low fares and the continuing success of the “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme.

Wednesday (January 10) was the busiest day for bookings last week and the most popular destinations for customers included winter holidays to Lanzarote and Tenerife and city breaks to Porto, Milan and Naples.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said, “We are delighted to announce this new weekly record of over 3 million bookings made on the website and app last week, the equivalent of five bookings a second, the population of Lithuania, the population of Madrid, and more than half of the total passengers Virgin Atlantic carry in an entire year."
