Ryanair: “Our outlook for the remainder of the fiscal year remains cautious as we have little visibility on Q4 yields. Based on Q3 forward bookings we now anticipate that winter (H2) yields will be slightly better than previously forecast, so we expect the full-year yield increase to be at the upper end of the +5% to +10% range previously guided, ie close to 10%. Given these somewhat better winter yield forecasts, although with the usual caveats about limited Q4 visibility, we now believe that full year net profit will exceed the upper end of our previous forecast range (EUR350m to EUR375m) and will now finish (subject to Q4 yields) within a range of EUR380 million to EUR400 million,” Michael O’Leary, CEO.
