More flying with Michael O'Leary's 'nice guy' airline
Ryanair has increased its passengers numbers by almost a third.
It seems Michael O'Leary's new "nice guy" persona has worked, helping the budget airline grow its passenger numbers to 6.7m in March.
The company launched a charm offensive last year after two profits warnings in 2013.
It has introduced changes like a free second carry-on bag and allocated seating. Mr O'Leary was presented to the media cuddling a puppy as it unveiled the Always Getting Better programme.
Ryanair said it carried 6.7m passengers last month, up from 5.2m during the same period in 2014. Its load factor - how full a plane is - increased by 10%, to 90%.
The airline flies out of City of Derry airport to a handful of destinations.
It pulled out of Belfast City Airport in 2010 following delays to a planned runway extension. The company said it planned to roll out phase two of its customer service revamp including a new website, interiors and menus.
