Ryanair expects Central and Eastern Europe to account for 20% of the 300 million passengers it plans to fly annually by 2034, up from about 13% currently, the airline's chief commercial officer said on Friday.

Europe's largest airline by passenger number expects to fly 183.5 million passengers in its current financial year, 24 million of which will come from Central and Eastern Europe. That number is expected to rise to 60 million by 2034, Jason McGuinness told reporters in a presentation. (Reporting by Joanna Plucinska Writing by Padraic Halpin Editing by David Goodman )
