7 million July bookings set Ryanair new monthly record
Saturday 17, July 2010
Ryanair has confirmed that a rush of ‘World Cup’ bookings has seen over 7million passengers book to travel on its guaranteed lowest fares this July – a new monthly record and the first time any European airline will carry over 7m passengers in a single month.
Ryanair will carry more passengers to summer sun destinations in July than most airlines will carry during the entire summer season as its combination of Europe’s guaranteed lowest fares and industry leading customer service, with the least lost bags, fewest cancelations and best on-time performance, make Ryanair Europe’s biggest and best airline.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“Ryanair will break a new monthly passenger record by carrying over 7m passengers in just one month, for the first time this July. Ryanair.com experienced a rush of ‘World Cup’ bookings every time a European team got knocked out of the World Cup as holiday hungry families swamped our website in search of unbeatable summer sun deals. The great news is that even with these record breaking bookings there is still time for passengers to grab one of our guaranteed lowest fares this summer and help push us even further into the record books.”
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
