Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (5 August) signed a license agreement with Optifly, a supplier of next generation schedule optimisation software.

After a trial phase during 2021, Ryanair plans to roll out Optifly’s software across its fleet.

Optifly’s scheduling software will support the development of Ryanair’s network as it takes delivery of 210 “gamechanger” Boeing 8-200 aircraft and grows traffic to 200m passengers p.a. over the next five years.

The increase in Ryanair’s fleet to 600 aircraft by FY26, will mean the opening of even more bases and new routes which Optifly’s scheduling software will support.

Jason McGuinness, Director of Commercial, Ryanair said: “We are excited about the potential offered by Optifly’s scheduling software to support Ryanair’s traffic growth to 200m passengers p.a. by 2026.”

Steven Kearney, CEO of Optifly said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Ryanair and are looking forward to helping them improve on their industry leading sectors per aircraft while supporting traffic growth to 200m passengers across their expanding network.”
