 Ryanair is targeting after a good quarter of a long summer to The recovery of ticket demand has surprisingly made Europe's largest low -cost airline Ryanair in the spring. CEO Michael O'Leary continues to expect a strong summer. Despite the bottlenecks and long snakes at many airports, he wants to offer significantly more flights than before Corona pandemic, as Ryanair announced in Dublin on Monday.

The low-cost airline Ryanair wants to raise prices in view of the expensive fuel. "The average price for a Ryanair ticket should increase from 40 to 50 euros in five years," said Germany boss Andreas Gruber of the German press agency.

The airline secures itself against rising oil prices with financial issues and buy cheap kerosene in stock, but you cannot fully cushion rising fuel prices, said Gruber, who is also head of the Ryanair subsidiary Laudamotion. In the economic crisis, the airline, meanwhile, sees itself as an advantage over more expensive competitors. "In the recession, more people will pay attention to the ticket price," said Gruber.

Lufthansa also increases flight tickets

with price increases Ryanair is not alone. Lufthansa has already benefited from more expensive tickets in the past few months and has announced higher flight prices for the further year. So traveling by plane after chaos in summer with rows of canceled flights, long queues on the switches and lost luggage at image with humans does not believe Ryanair manager Gruber.

"We see an unbroken great anticipation on vacation trips." In luggage handling, Ryanair also had clear advantages over network providers with turnstile as airline with point-to-point connections. Ryanair had left the slump in passenger numbers in Corona pandemic.

In the coming financial year, passenger numbers are scheduled to increase to 185 million in the current financial year (April 2022 to March 2023) Ryanair in Europe will promote a good 166 million passengers, 115 percent of the level before the Corona crisis (149 million). In the coming financial year, passenger numbers should increase to 185 million and then to 225 million to 2026, says Gruber.

"We are constantly working on closing this gap and see a lot of potential here."

The airline focuses on regional airports such as Baden-Baden, Nuremberg or Memmingen instead of on metropolises. "We are constantly in discussions with existing and potentially new airport partners for further growth," said Gruber. Ryanair records

at the Hunsrück Airport Hahn, which was sold to the Swift Conjoy investor group after the recent bankruptcy. "We had talks with the new owners and gave a clear commitment to the airport," said Gruber. Ryanair continued to station two jets on the rooster and will operate 23 routes from the airport in the coming winter. Gruber did not rule out an increase.

A return to Frankfurt am Main Airport, which Ryanair left in the spring of starting and landing fees in the spring, is currently not an issue, said Gruber. "A commitment in Frankfurt currently makes no sense." Previously, the manager had not categorically excluded a return in a few years. (dpa)
