Ryanair Traffic Grew 6% To 12.5m Customers In May

Ryanair has released its traffic statistics for May, revealing that the airline's traffic grew 6% to 12.5 million customers, while load factor rose 1% to 96% and rolling annual traffic to May grew 8% to 132.1 million customers.

Commenting on the data, Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said, “Ryanair’s May traffic grew by 6% to 12.5m customers, while our load factor rose 1% to 96%, on the back of lower fares.

“Regrettably, over 200,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled in May because of ATC strikes (mostly French), ATC staff shortages and thunderstorms. Ryanair calls for immediate EU Commission action to prevent more ATC strikes and staff shortages disrupting the travel plans of Europe’s consumers this summer.”
