While we’re on the topic of flying, it’s nice to know that Ryanair is still flying strong.
Ryanair, Europe’s biggest low-cost airline, said a 30% rise in passenger numbers has helped to boost its quarterly profits. Net profit rose 21% to 64.4m euros (£44m; $78m) while sales improved 35% to 404.60m euros in the three months to 30 June, compared to a year ago.
For those who haven’t heard of Ryanair, the next time you’re travelling in Europe be sure to check them out. With flights starting as low as £12 ($20.00) it’s often times cheaper to fly than to catch the train.
