Traffic grows 10%
Ryanair carries more passengers despite call-offs
Ryanair: almost all passengers compensated for cancelled flights
Ryanair said it carried 10% more passengers last month despite the crisis over cancelled flights.
Passenger traffic was 11.8 million in September, up one million on the same month last year and in line with growth in August.
Ryanair’s load factor, a measure of how much it is able to fill aircraft with passengers, increased by 2 per cent to 97% – the same as in August.
By the end of September the budget airline had carried 127.3 million customers, an increase of 12% on last year.
Chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: “These figures include the 2,100 flight cancellations announced for September and October.
“We have now refunded/re-accommodated 98% of customers who were impacted in September and October. The remaining 2% of affected customers have yet to contact us.”
