Monthly number of passengers carried by Ryanair 2011-2020

The Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair saw its passenger figures rise consecutively over the past seven years, with the 2018/19 fiscal year proving the airlines busiest yet. Across all years, the summer months saw the largest number of passengers uplifted. In 2019, these figures peaked in August at 14.9 million. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak worldwide, Ryanair's passenger traffic in June 2020 decreased by 97 percent to only 40,000 passengers.

 Growth in global passenger air traffic

In terms of global air traffic, 2017 was the year with the greatest growth of passenger demand. With 2009 being the only year since 2006 where a decline in passenger numbers was recorded. This being likely due to the recession.

 Ryanair - sixth largest airline group worldwide

Ryanair ranked as the sixth largest airline group worldwide by passenger traffic. The company was the second leading European based carrier, behind Lufthansa and with the first four entries all operating from the U.S. The company’s rising passenger numbers also translated into a yearly increase in revenue generated, with the financial year ending March 2019 being Ryanair’s most profitable.
