Flight Volume — 6 Months History
As one of the rare airlines, Ryanair maintained its August flight volume in September too. However, as the chart shows, Ryanair's growth is slowing down at the moment. Of course, the end of summer holidays plays an important role in that context. Usually, airlines reduce their flight volume in September. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see whether Ryanair will continue on its growth path in October or reached a current volume plateau.
