Ryanair (Dublin) has set a new airline record. The airline becomes the first airline in the world to carry over 10 million international passengers in one month.
The airline issued its traffic statistics for July and noted this accomplishment:
Load Factor Rises 4% Points To 95%
First airline to carry 10 million international customers in a month
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
“Ryanair’s July traffic grew by 11% to 10.1 million customers, while our load factor jumped 4% points to 95%. This is the first time ever that any airline has carried over 10 million international customers in one calendar month. For example, we carried more customers in one month (10.14 million in July) than Aer Lingus carried in a whole year (9.77 million 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 program, 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 program, 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.”
