Ryanair said it operated more than 71,000 flights on its European route network during August, 10,000 more than in July.

Michael O’Leary, the airline’s CEO, said this week that the industry is experiencing a “strong recovery”, driven by the introduction of the European Union’s Covid certificates and increased demand for flights.
