Background, History, and More Information
Ryanair is based in Swords, Dublin in Ireland and its primary operational bases are Dublin Airport and London Stansted Airport. It is the largest European airline in terms of scheduled passengers carried and the busiest international airline by number of passengers carried.
Ryanair is known as Europe’s favorite airline; with more than 1,800 daily flights flying 117 million passengers from 84 bases connecting over 200 destinations in 33 countries. It operates with a fleet of 350 Boeing 737 aircraft. It also has 315 Boeing 737 on order. This will enable the airline to offer lower fares and increase their traffic to 180 million passengers by 2024. Ryanair is unique because it uses Boeing 737 on all their flights. Accordingly, Ryanair came up with this strategy so they can offer cheaper fares to their passengers and ensure their safety on board. This is due to the fact that Boeing 737 was the world’s safest aircraft in 2015 with the rate of only one crash per 4.8 million flying hours, according to the data from Ascend London Insurance Consultancy.
Michael O’Leary is the Chief Executive Officer of Ryanair. He was born on March 20, 1961 in Kanturk, County Cork. Mr. O’Leary was Ryanair’s deputy CEO between 1991 and 1994 and was promoted to chief executive in January 1994. He is known as one of Ireland’s wealthiest businessmen.
