3 MILLION BOOKINGS IN ONE WEEK FOR FIRST TIME IN ITS HISTORY
Ryanair today (15 Jan) announced that it smashed its weekly bookings record, taking over 3m bookings in one week (for the next 20-week period) for the first time in its history. This new weekly 3m bookings record is a direct result of Ryanair’s low fares and the continuing success of the “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme.
Wednesday (10 Jan) was the busiest day for bookings last week and the most popular destinations for customers included winter holidays to Lanzarote and Tenerife and city breaks to Porto, Milan and Naples.
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“We are delighted to announce this new weekly record of over 3 million bookings made on the Ryanair.com website and app last week, the equivalent of:
- 5 bookings a second
- the population of Lithuania
- the population of Madrid
- more than half of the total passengers Virgin Atlantic carry in an entire year
To celebrate our record week of bookings, we are releasing seats for sale from just €14.99 for travel between now and April, which are available for booking until midnight Wednesday (17 Jan). Since these amazingly low prices will be snapped up quickly, customers should log onto www.ryanair.com and avoid missing out.”
