LOAD FACTOR RISES 4% POINTS TO 95%
FIRST AIRLINE TO CARRY 10M INTL. CUSTOMERS IN A MONTH
Ryanair today (5 Aug) released customer and load factor statistics for July as follows:
- Traffic grew 11% to 10.1m customers.
- Load factor rose 4% points to 95%.
- Rolling annual traffic to July grew 15% to 95.3m customers.
- First airline to carry 10m intl customers in a month.
Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs said:
“Ryanair’s July traffic grew by 11% to 10.1m customers, while our load factor jumped 4% points to 95%. This is the first time ever that any airline has carried over 10m international customers in one calendar month. For example we carried more customers in one month (10.14m in July) than Aer Lingus carried in a whole year (9.77m in 2014).
These record customer numbers and highest ever load factors are due to our lower fares, our stronger forward bookings and the continuing success of our “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme, which continues to deliver stronger than expected traffic and load factors on our biggest ever summer schedule.
Ryanair customers can look forward to more service enhancements in the autumn, as we continue Year 2 of our AGB programme, which include 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’, as Ryanair continues to deliver so much more than just the lowest fares in Europe.”
