Ryanair bucks the trend

It's tough for airlines post-Covid and into the economic downturn we're seeing at the moment, as we see many of them fail to regain the ground that we saw pre-Covid.

Not so for Ryanair. It's posted its largest ever after-tax profit for the first half (H1) of this financial year. Europe's largest airline by passenger numbers earned €1.37 billion in the period a record. Ryanair said it was hopeful it could deliver an after-tax profit of between €1bn and €1.2bn for the year through to the end of March.

Significantly, the numbers are better than they were pre-pandemic, and the question is, how has it done it? Well, fares are higher by a margin of 7% than they were in the pre-Covid 2020 financial year.

Share price chart

Let's take a look at the chart. We can see clearly on the Irish Exchange where it trades it's currently trading at 1271.

Now, this is up over 3% on the session today and at levels at the moment now, not seen since the 13th of September. It has nonetheless been difficult for shareholders after the highs we saw up to €18.40 trading at 1271.

The increase in numbers over the half-year would have been higher. But with the invasion of Ukraine according to Ryanair ticket take up was up 14% in the second half of the year, which is offset by lower first quarter fares. So the company is doing the best it can in the circumstances.

We'll have to see how things develop further on this, whether or not we see any further gains. But at the moment, at least, we're trading up on the session by a margin of over 3%.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
