Ryanair plans to carry more passengers to Spain, growing from the current 55 million to 77 million as it increases the number of routes from 730 to more than 1,000 by 2030. A total of 33 new planes and five new bases are also part of Ryanair's roadmap. At the meeting, O'Leary agreed to work on the reinforcement of regional airports, boosting the economy of lesser-known areas of Spain.
Some 6,500 employees work for Ryanair in Spain. The airline is the leader for the number of passengers it flies in Spain with more than 700 routes from 29 countries.
