Ryanair sees increase in traffic for August

Ryanair's passenger numbers have gone up, according to traffic figures for August released today.

The low-cost airline saw its traffic grow 11% to 11.5 million customers last month.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said: “Ryanair’s August load factor jumped 1% point to 96%.

"Lower fares post-Brexit and the continuing success of our “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme continue to deliver even more great value for our rapidly growing customer base.

"As our recent guidance confirmed, Ryanair expects average fares to fall by between 10% to 12% in the six months to March 2017."
