Ryanair says being nicer has lifted earnings

first_img Tags: NULL Joseph Millis Show Comments ▼ IRISH budget airline Ryanair yesterday raised its full-year profit forecast, following a 22 per cent jump in passenger numbers to 6.35m people in the year to November.The airline said it now expected profits to be between €810m and €830m (£636m-£652m), partly due to better customer service.Just last month, Ryanair had raised its profit outlook by 20 per cent to a range of €750m-€770m. The latest profit upgrade sent shares in the airline up 8.5 per cent to €9.46.Ryanair said improvements in customer service had brought about a stronger than expected performance in the first month of its winter schedule.The results represent a turnaround for Ryanair. Last year, it was forced to issue two profit warnings as a result of lower passenger numbers and airfares, which chief executive Michael O’Leary blamed on “three or four years of austerity across Europe”.O’Leary also admitted earlier this year that his high profile abrasiveness might have put some off flying with the airline.In response, Ryanair cut baggage check-in fees in an attempt to boost passenger numbers, and also allowed passengers to book seats for the first time in February, in a response to a similar move from rival EasyJet.
