Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

Ryanair’s May traffic grew by 6% to 12.5m customers, while our load factor rose 1% to 96%, on the back of lower fares.

Regrettably over 200,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled in May because of ATC strikes (mostly French), ATC staff shortages and thunderstorms. Ryanair calls for immediate EU Commission action to prevent more ATC strikes and staff shortages disrupting the travel plans of Europe’s consumers this summer.”

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