Ryanair Holdings Plc said it’s ready to redeploy aircraft from Britain to more vibrant markets if the pound’s collapse, soaring inflation and higher interest rates begin to undermine travel demand there.

The economic situation in Ryanair’s biggest market has become challenging following the turmoil unleashed by Prime Minister Liz Truss’s new fiscal policy, with concerns about the impact of diminishing disposable income and higher effective prices facing Britons traveling overseas, it said Wednesday.
