“Having added 560 new routes and opened 14 bases throughout the last 12 months, Ryanair is now looking ahead to S’22 and the addition of 65 new B737-8200 ‘Gamechanger’ aircraft to its fleet, which offer 4% more seats, 16% less fuel and a 40% reduction in noise emissions, making the S’22 schedule the most sustainable and environmentally friendly to date.”
