“There aren’t quite a few airlines in world-wide aviation that are prepared to introduce far more seasonality into their potential,” he mentioned.
“[Ryanair] produced a acutely aware selection just following the GFC to introduce more seasonality … the way they’ve carried out that is by having much more ability out of the wintertime, off-peak, and introducing more into the summer time peak – by sitting down out some of its aircrafts for the duration of the winter to execute major maintenance on all those all through that interval.”
