Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

Our February traffic grew by 10% to 8.2m customers, while our load factor jumped 2% points to 95%, on the back of lower fares and the continuing success of our “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme.

 

Ryanair’s lower fares and AGB services are leading to slightly higher than expected load factors in Q4 and accordingly we now expect full year traffic to just about hit 120m, up almost 13% over the 106.4m customers we carried in FY16

We publish monthly traffic within the first 5 working days of the month.
