London Stansted-Dublin is the most popular route for US visitors, followed by Edinburgh-Dublin, Rome-Barcelona, Paris-Dublin and Frankfurt Hahn-London Stansted, with the most bookings coming from customers living in California, New York, Texas, Florida and New Jersey. Ryanair's Robin Kiely said: "Ryanair launched a dedicated American version of the Ryanair.com website to make it easier for US customers to book Europe's lowest fares. The response from the USA has been phenomenal, with bookings up 50pc and we look forward to carrying thousands more US customers this year, who choose Ryanair for our low fares and industry leading customer service, as well as Europe's biggest route network, connecting 189 destinations, in 30 countries, through over 1,600 routes."
