Ryanair has revealed this week that their traffic numbers for the month of October has grown by nine per cent.
The Irish low-cost carrier, despite external pressures, continues to grow its traffic month-on-month through the addition of new routes and new aircraft.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Ryanair Traffic Numbers Grow 9% in October 2023…
October 2023 saw Ryanair handle 17.1m passengers, which is nine per cent better than the same period last year where 15.7m were handled.
However, load factors dropped one per cent from 93% to 94%, although as we will come to see in the rolling figures, it’s not too much of an issue.
For the 12 months rolling to October 2023, the Irish low-cost carrier handled 180.3m passengers, which is an increase of 15%.
When you compare load factors, they have risen by three percentage points to 94% from 91%, so overall, the airline still continues to perform well on an annual basis.
October was a busy month for the airline, especially with the Winter 2023/24 schedule starting, which meant a series of large route announcements, of which are in the following list:
- Cornwall & Leeds
- Canary Islands
- Birmingham & Manchester
- New Tirana Base
- Kerry & Knock
Within the aforementioned above, dozens of new routes are being introduced for the Winter season, which will no doubt result in more passengers handled, of which such a correlation will be interesting to see when the future traffic reports come out from the carrier.
