Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary said he remains “wary and cautious” about the potential for new Covid variants and pandemic-related restrictions to derail what’s expected to be a “very strong bounce back” in travel this summer.

The carrier will be operating about 115pc of its 2019 capacity this summer. The increase comes as the carrier sees continuing deliveries of Boeing 737 Max aircraft.
