New traffic statistics released by Ryanair for October 2017 reveal that the airline's traffic for the month grew by 8% from 10.9 million to 11.8 million compared to the same period last year.
Additionally, Ryanair's load factor was up 1 percentage point on October 2016 to 96% and rolling annual traffic rose 12% to 128.2 million.
Commenting on the new data, Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said, “Ryanair’s October traffic grew by 8% to 11.8m customers, while our load factor jumped 1% to 96%, on the back of lower fares. These figures include the flight cancellations announced in September. Ryanair customers can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for winter or summer, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight on Ryanair.”
