Here are the more interesting Ryanair facts I was able to dig up recently. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.

Ryanair Facts and StatisticsPlease note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All Ryanair stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
