Ryanair, Europe's favourite airline, today (25 Aug) welcomed confirmation from IATA that it remains the world’s favourite airline after IATA’s latest World Airline Transport Statistics showed Ryanair once again carried more international customers than any other airline.

Ryanair carried over 101.4m international passengers last year, almost 40m more than second-placed Easyjet (62.6m) and 55m more than Lufthansa in 4th place (46.9m).

Ryanair celebrated being named the world’s favourite airline once more by releasing 100,000 seats for sale across its European network, at prices starting from €19.99 for travel in October and November. These low fare seats are available for booking on the Ryanair.com website until midnight Monday (29 Aug). 

Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said:

“IATA has once again confirmed that Ryanair remains the world’s favourite airline as we became the first airline in the world to carry more than 100m international customers in one year, thanks to our “Always Getting Better” programme and by offering the lowest fares in Europe. Customers can look forward to more new routes, new digital features, new cabin interiors and even more low fares, as we carry more than 117m customers this year.  

To celebrate we have released 100,000 seats for sale across our European network, at prices from €19.99 for travel in October and November. These low fare seats are available for booking until midnight Monday (29 August).”
