Ryanair, Europe`s only low fares airline, today (20th December 2002) announced it will carry a record breaking 750,000 passengers over the festive season. This is an increase of 50% on last year`s figure (an increase of 250,000 passengers).
Ryanair`s Head of Communications, Paul Fitzsimmons, commented:
“Santa`s not the only one that will be busy this Christmas! More and more people all over Europe are availing of our low low fares to travel to see family and friends over the festive season. We`re carrying over 250,000 more passengers than last Christmas, that`s up 50%.
“Demand at Christmas and New Year is huge, but there are still bargain low fares to be grabbed from our website, and we would urge people to book now and take advantage of Ryanair`s low fares this Christmas.”
