Ryanair today released its October traffic statistics as follows:
- Total traffic grew 11% to 13.1m with a 96% load factor
- Ryanair traffic grew 7% to 12.6m customers with a 96% load factor
- Lauda traffic was 0.5m customers with a 89% load factor
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“Ryanair’s Oct traffic (which includes Lauda) grew by 11% to 13.1m customers, due to lower fares and continuing success of Lauda’s summer schedule.
During October, we were forced to cancel just over 300 flights because of a five day airport handler strike at Brussels Zaventem, some adverse weather (winter storms) and continuing ATC staff shortages in the UK, Germany and France. We operated over 71,400 scheduled flights with over 80% of these flights arriving on time, as Ryanair continues to deliver the lowest fares, with the best punctuality of any major EU airline.”
