Ryanair passenger numbers jump 16%

Ryanair’s May passenger numbers have soared by 16% to 9.5 million.

The low-cost carrier saw its load factor rise by seven percentage points to 92%.

The May figures mean that the airline’s rolling annual traffic grew by 13% to 93.1 million passengers.

Chief marketing officer, Kenny Jacobs, said: "Ryanair's May traffic grew by 16% to 9.5m customers, while our load factor jumped by 7% points to 92%, thanks to our lower fares, our stronger forward bookings and the continuing success of our ‘Always Getting Better’ customer experience improvement programme, which continues to deliver better than expected load factors on our significantly expanded summer schedule.

“Alongside our new routes, increased frequencies, Business Plus and Family Extra services, Ryanair customers can now look forward to further service enhancements, as we roll out year two of our ‘Always Getting Better’ programme in 2015, which includes a new website, new app, new cabin interiors, new crew uniforms, improved inflight menus, reduced fees, and great new digital features such as 'hold the fare' and price comparison services."
