The airline also noted the amount of passengers that passed through their doors last year amounting to a staggering 106 million. The news in January reported that that Ryanair had become the first airline to break the 100 million mark for passengers flown in a calendar year seems to have been just the start of the good fortune.
The rise and rise of the budget airline has also seen boosts in a number of other key areas, with its revenue increasing from €5.65 billion up to €6.53 billion, and a 48% increase on the amount earned on each of its shares.
