Ryanair passenger numbers continue to rise

Ryanair continued its ascent in June with a 14% rise in passengers carried to 9.5 million over the same month last year.

This represented an increase of 1.5 million passengers with an improved load factor up from 88% to 93%.

The June figure means the low-cost carrier’s annual traffic to June rose by 14% to 94.3 million passengers.

Chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: "Ryanair's June traffic grew by 14% to 9.5 milion customers, while our load factor jumped by 5% points to 93%, 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, as Ryanair continues to deliver so much more than just the lowest fares."
