Ryanair's June Traffic Grows 7% To 12.6m Customers

Ryanair's traffic statistics for June have revealed that the airline's traffic grew 7% to 12.6 million customers, while ATC strikes and staff shortages caused over 1,100 flight cancellations in June compared to 41 cancellations in the same month last year and rolling annual traffic to June grew 7% to 132.9 million customers.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs commented,  “Ryanair’s June traffic grew by 7% to 12.6 million customers, while our load factor remained strong at 96%, on the back of lower fares.

“Regrettably over 210,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled in June because of four weekends of ATC strikes and repeated UK, German and French ATC staff shortages. Ryanair calls for urgent action by the EU Commission and European governments to ameliorate the effect of ATC strikes and staff shortages in the UK, Germany and France from disrupting the travel plans of millions of Europe’s consumers this summer.”
