Ryanair Full Year Profit Down 29% To €1.02bn On Lower Fares Guiding Flat Group Profits For The Coming Year Board Approves €700m Share Buyback

Ryanair today (20 May) reported a full year profit of €1.02bn (excl. Lauda). Strong traffic growth, up 7% to 139m, was offset by a 6% decline in fares. Strong ancillary growth (+19%) was offset by higher fuel, staff and EU261 costs.

 

Full-year Results (IFRS)*Mar. 31, 2018Mar. 31, 2019% Change
Guests130.3m139.1m+7%

Revenue€7.15bn€7.56bn+6%
PAT€1.45bn€1.02bn-29%

* excl. Lauda €139.5m exceptional start-up loss (FY19).  Group traffic (incl. Lauda) was 142m

 

Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:

“As previously guided, Ryanair (excl. Lauda) reports a full year after tax profit of €1.02bn.  Short-haul capacity growth and the absence of Easter in Q4 led to a 6% fare decline, which stimulated 7% traffic growth to over 139m (142m guests incl. Lauda).  Ancillary sales performed strongly up 19% to €2.4bn, which drove total revenue growth of 6% to €7.6bn.

 

FY19 highlights include:

  • fare fell 6% to just €37
  • Traffic grew 9% to 142m (incl. Lauda)
  • Ancillary revenue rose 19% to €2.4bn
  • end fleet grew to 455 B737 & 19 A320 aircraft
  • 406 new routes and 9 new bases launched
  • Ryanair Sun (Buzz) traded profitably in Yr.1
  • Purchase of Lauda completed in Dec. with an exceptional Yr.1 loss of €139m
  • UK AOC received in Dec.
  • Union agreements concluded in most major markets
  • Over €560m returned to shareholders via buybacks

Revenue

Revenues rose 6% to €7.6bn due to 7% higher traffic, a 6% cut in ave. fares to €37, while  Ryanair Labs continues to stimulate ancillary sales growth with spend per guest up 11% to over €17.  Priority boarding and reserved seat services grew strongly.  Ryanair Labs continues to improve our digital platform (website, app & 3rd party ancillary plug-ins).

 

Cost Leadership

Ryanair has the lowest unit costs of any EU airline, and the cost gap with EU competitors continues to widen. FY19 was a year of investment in our people, our support systems and our business as we grow to 200m guests p.a. by 2024.  Ex-fuel unit costs rose 5% (better than previously guided 6%) due to €200m higher staff costs (incl. 20% pilot pay increases) and €50m higher EU261 costs due to the repeated ATC staff shortage disruptions in FY19. As weaker European airlines are sold or fail, airports are competing to attract Ryanair’s efficient, high load factor, traffic growth.  Our airport costs are 35% lower than our nearest competitor. During FY19 our oil bill increased by €440m. We are 90% hedged for FY20 at $709 per tonne and 35% hedged for Q1 FY21 at $654.

 

Group Airlines

In S.2018 we launched Ryanair Sun (now rebranded “Buzz”), our Polish AOC, with 5 B737 aircraft offering charter flights to/from Poland.  Buzz has taken over Ryanair’s scheduled bases in Poland and will operate a fleet of 25 aircraft in FY20 (incl. 7 for charters).  The Buzz management team successfully delivered a modest profit in their first year of operations.

In December 2018, Lauda (an Austrian AOC) became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Ryanair Group. We consolidated 3m customers in its first year of operations to March 2019 but suffered exceptional start-up losses of €139.5m, mainly due to the very late release of its S.2018 schedules, very low promotional fares, expensive short-term aircraft leases and an unhedged fuel position. Lauda enters its second year with a larger (lower-cost) fleet of 23 A320 aircraft, and a target of just over 6m guests p.a. They have signed agreements to grow this fleet to 35 x A320 aircraft for S.2020 and by year 3 (FY21) we believe Lauda will grow to carry over 8m guests p.a. and will be trading profitably.

 

Higher oil prices and lower fares have seen a wave of EU airline failures including Primera (UK & Spain), Small Planet, Azur and Germania (Germany), Sky Works (Switz.), VLM (Belgium), Cobalt (Cyprus), Cello & Flybmi (UK) and WOW (Iceland).  Flybe (UK) was sold, while both Alitalia and Thomas Cook airline are currently for sale.

Ryanair closed unprofitable bases in Bremen & Eindhoven and we cut aircraft numbers in Niederrhein, Hahn and the Canary Islands. Norwegian has closed multiple bases (many where they compete with Ryanair), including Rome, Las Palmas, Palma, Tenerife, Edinburgh & Belfast, and they will cut their Dublin base from 6 to 1 aircraft in October. Wizz (Poznan), Lufthansa (Dusseldorf) and EasyJet (Oporto) have also announced base cuts and/or closures in recent months. We expect further consolidation and airline failures in winter 2019 and again into 2020 due to over-capacity, weaker fares, and higher oil prices particularly among those airlines who are significantly unhedged, or unable to hedge.

Boeing 737 MAX

We have delayed the delivery of our first 5 B737-MAX aircraft to Winter 2019 (subject to regulatory approval by EASA). We continue to have utmost confidence in these aircraft which have 4% more seats, are 16% more fuel efficient and generate 40% lower noise emissions. They are hedged at an average €/$ rate of 1.24 out to FY24, and will deliver significant unit cost savings for the next 5 years, although the delayed deliveries in 2019 means that we will not see any meaningful cost benefit until FY21.

 

Balance Sheet & Fleet

The Group’s BBB+ rated balance sheet is one of the strongest in the industry.  Almost 95% of our 455 aircraft fleet is owned, with over 63% debt free. At year end the Group had €3.2bn gross cash. Ryanair generated almost €2bn net cash from operations in FY19, but spent over €1.5bn on capex (primarily aircraft, simulators, engines & hangars), returned €560m to shareholders in share buybacks, and repaid more than €400m of debt.  As a result, year-end net debt rose slightly to €450m.  We recently concluded a low-cost, €750m unsecured (5-year) bank facility.  This facility, coupled with strong operating cashflows, will fund this year’s peak capex of c.€2bn, maturing secured debt and other general corporate purposes.  We are also in advanced negotiations to sell 10 of our oldest B737s for over $170m before the end of March 2020.

 

Shareholder Distributions

The Board has approved a €700m share buyback which will commence later this week and run over the next 9 to 12 months.  We expect to split this approx. €500m/€200m between ADR’s and ordinary shares, although the Board has discretion to revise this allocation.  This latest buyback will bring to almost €7bn of the funds returned to shareholders since 2008.

 

FY20 Guidance

While we separately disclosed Lauda’s year 1 start-up loss as exceptional in FY19, their FY20 results will not be split out in the Ryanair Group income statement.  FY20 guidance is therefore for the consolidated Ryanair Group.

 

Our outlook for FY20 remains cautious on pricing. Traffic will grow by 8% to 153m. Assuming revenue per pax (“RPP”) growth of 3%, we are guiding broadly flat Group profits. This will range from €750m if RPP rises 2%, up to €950m if RPP rises 4%.  While H1 bookings are slightly ahead of last year, fares are lower and we expect this trend will continue through S.2019. We have zero H2 visibility.  Costs will increase as our full-year fuel bill jumps by another €460m.  Ex-fuel unit costs will rise by just 2%, mainly due to stronger sterling, the absence of Lauda prior-year cost comparisons for most of H1 and delivery delays of the B737 MAX aircraft this year. This guidance is heavily dependent on close-in peak summer fares, H2 prices, the absence of security events, and no negative Brexit developments.”

Ryanair Signe Un Partenariat Avec Cefa Aviation Pour Le Logiciel De Formation Pilotes

La Première Compagnie Aérienne Européenne Adopte L’application Pour La Formation Des Pilotes Développée Par Le Leader Mondial En Termes De Sécurité Aérienne

Ryanair, la première compagnie aérienne européenne, a annoncé aujourd’hui (15 mai) la signature d’un accord de six ans avec CEFA Aviation, leader des logiciels et services de sécurité des vols et de formation des pilotes, afin de fournir le premier service mobile au monde basé sur le cloud pour les programmes de formation des pilotes de Ryanair : CEFA AMS (Aviation Mobile Services)

Avec ce nouveau partenariat, lancé lors du forum sur la sécurité de l’aviation en Europe organisé par l’EASA à Bruxelles, Ryanair devient la première compagnie aérienne en Europe à adopter cette innovation révolutionnaire en matière de formation des pilotes, la seule application au monde permettant aux pilotes de rejouer leurs vols sur leur tablette après l’atterrissage.

À Bruxelles, le pilote en chef de Ryanair, Ray Conway, a déclaré :

‶Cet accord marque le début du prochain chapitre de la formation des pilotes Ryanair et fixe de nouvelles normes en termes de retours constructifs pour nos équipages. Au cours de la prochaine année, nous suivrons les performances des pilotes pour veiller à ce que nos pilotes non seulement respectent les normes de sécurité et d’efficacité les plus strictes du secteur, mais établissent également de nouvelles normes d’excellence pour les années à venir.

Former aux normes les plus strictes en matière de sécurité et d’efficacité est et a toujours été une priorité absolue pour Ryanair. Nous mettons l’accent sur la sécurité sans relâche. Nos pilotes comptent parmi les meilleurs du secteur et notre bilan de sécurité de 34 ans parle de lui-même. L’innovation avec ce nouveau service mobile s’inscrit dans les trois années de développement de notre stratégie de sécurité d’entreprise (Corporate Safety Strategy) garantissant que la sécurité et la sûreté restent au cœur de tout ce que nous faisons chez Ryanair.”

Dominique Mineo, PDG et fondateur de CEFA Aviation, a déclaré :

‶Nous sommes extrêmement satisfaits de notre partenariat avec la première compagnie aérienne européenne et de l’intégration de cette compagnie low-cost dans la communauté CEFA AMS. Après l’Asie et notre client de lancement, All Nippon Airways, il est extrêmement important de déployer notre innovation en Europe avec la première compagnie aérienne de ce continent et une compagnie aérienne ayant un engagement absolu en matière de sécurité des opérations. Nous profiterons de cette nouvelle coopération grâce au retour d’expérience de Ryanair, ce qui nous permettra d’améliorer continuellement notre service mobile.”

Le capitaine Andy O’Shea, responsable de la formation des équipages chez Ryanair, a déclaré :

‶La mise en place du premier service mobile mondial de CEFA Aviation témoigne de la force novatrice de Ryanair et de notre volonté ferme de diriger le changement de paradigme de formation des pilotes préconisé par l’AESA. Notre compagnie aérienne place de grands espoirs en CEFA AMS qui s’intègre dans notre système leader mondial OFDM (Système de surveillance des données de vol opérationnelles), qui a été adopté pour l’ensemble de la flotte en 2004.

L’application de relecture de vol CEFA AMS est une étape importante dans nos efforts pour améliorer les compétences de nos pilotes. Il s’agit du match parfait avec notre installation de lecture OFDM unique dans notre flotte de simulateurs à base fixe. Nous sommes fiers d’initier un changement destiné à révolutionner non seulement la culture du débriefing et de la formation au sein de l’entreprise, mais également celui de l’aviation européenne, rendant ainsi le ciel plus sûr.”

Ryanair Signs Pilot Training Software Partnership With CEFA Aviation

First European Airline To Introduce World Leading Pilot Training Safety App

Ryanair, Europe’s No. 1 airline, today (15 May) announced a six-year deal with CEFA Aviation, a leader in flight safety and pilot training software and services, to provide world first cloud-based mobile service CEFA AMS (Aviation Mobile Services) for Ryanair’s pilot training programmes.

With this new partnership, launched at EASA’s Safety in Aviation Forum for Europe in Brussels, Ryanair will become the first airline in Europe to introduce this breakthrough pilot training innovation with the only app in the world allowing pilots to replay their flights on their tablet after landing.

In Brussels, Ryanair’s Chief Pilot Ray Conway said:

“This agreement marks the beginning of the next chapter in Ryanair pilot training and will set new standards for delivering constructive feedback to our crews. Over the next year we will monitor pilot performance to ensure that our pilots not only deliver to the highest standards of safety and efficiency in the industry but set new standards of excellence for the years ahead.

Training to the highest standards of safety and efficiency is, and always has been a top priority for Ryanair. Our focus on safety is unrelenting. Our  pilots are among the best in the business and our 34 year safety record speaks for itself. Innovating with this new mobile service has been a development of our 3-year Corporate Safety Strategy ensuring that safety & security remain at the heart of everything we do in Ryanair.”

Dominique Mineo, CEFA Aviation’s CEO and founder said:

“We are extremely satisfied to partner with the No.1 airline in Europe and to welcome this low-cost carrier into the CEFA AMS community. After Asia and our launch customer All Nippon Airways, it is highly important to deploy our innovation within Europe with this continent’s No. 1 airline, and an airline with an absolute commitment to safe operations. We will benefit from this new cooperation through Ryanair’s return on experience – allowing us to continuously enhance our mobile service.”

Captain Andy O’Shea, Head of Crew Training at Ryanair, said:

“The implementation of CEFA Aviation’s world first mobile service testifies Ryanair’s innovative strength as well as our strong desire to lead the shift of the pilot training paradigm as advocated by EASA. Our airline has high hopes for CEFA AMS which integrates into our world-leading OFDM (Operational Flight Data Monitoring) system that was adopted fleet-wide in 2004.

The CEFA AMS flight replay facility app is a milestone in our endeavors to enhance our pilots’ proficiency. It is the perfect match with our unique OFDM replay facility in our fleet of Fixed Base Simulators. We are proud to initiate a change designed to revolutionize not only the debriefing and training culture within the company, but also for European aviation, thus making the sky safer.”

Europe’s Greenest Airline Condemns Proposed Dutch Aviation Tax Which Rewards Polluters And Penalises Green Flying

Europe’s greenest, cleanest airline, Ryanair today (15 May) condemned the Dutch Government’s proposed National Aviation Tax, due to be introduced in 2021. This proposed tax will reward environmentally damaging, connecting flights – because it exempts transfer passengers at Schiphol’s hub airport (which is clearly designed as a further state aid to KLM), – while imposing the tax on more environmentally efficient direct flights taken by Dutch consumers and visitors travelling to and from the Netherlands. Connecting passengers at Schiphol who make no contribution to the Dutch economy, should be paying the cost of their damaging environmental footprint. Ryanair’s passengers have the lowest carbon footprint (CO2 per passenger km) of any airline operating to and from the Netherlands and Ryanair is investing in quieter, more fuel-efficient new aircraft – while KLM continues to operate older, half empty, less fuel-efficient aircraft. This tax rewards KLM’s environmental inefficiency, yet penalises Dutch passengers choosing Ryanair, Europe’s greenest cleanest airline.

Ryanair passengers already contribute to the environment by choosing to fly with Europe’s greenest, cleanest airline, they pay environmental taxes through both the EU’s ETS fees and excessive Government taxes, and now they are to be penalised again by this Dutch Government tax, which will exempt KLM’s environmentally inefficient transfer passengers (who take two flights to reach their destination rather than one environmentally efficient direct flight).

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said: 

“This Dutch Aviation Tax has nothing to do with the environment, it’s just another state subsidy to KLM. If the Dutch Government are serious about the environment then it should apply environmental taxes to the biggest polluter which is those passengers taking 2 connecting flights at Schiphol on older aircraft, and instead levy lower taxes on environmentally efficient airlines carrying passengers on direct flights on newer aircraft to/from the Netherlands”.
