Ryanair has raised its annual profit forecast after seeing net income more than double for the Q2 2014.
Second quarter profit rose to 197 million euros ($266 million) compared to 78 million euros a year earlier, the budget airline company said.
Chief financial officer Howard Millar said: “We’ve made a lot of service improvements over the last six or seven months and we’re seeing the benefits.”
The rise comes after profit warnings by rivals Air France-KLM and Lufthansa.
Ryanair, which is Europe’s biggest budget airline, began promoting a more customer-friendly image late last year.
The airline raised its profit forecast for the year to March 2015 to a range of between 620 million euros to 650 million euros, up from a previous estimated range of 580 million euros to 620 million euros.
Ryanair has also said that it plans to aggressively raise capacity this winter by 8% and build its business-friendly routes.
