Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (3 July) released June traffic statistics as follows:
- Traffic grew 7% to 12.6m customers
- ATC strikes and staff shortages caused over 1,100 flight cancellations in June compared to just 41 cancellations in June 17
- Rolling annual traffic to June grew 7% to 132.9m customers
Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:
"Ryanair’s June traffic grew by 7% to 12.6m customers, while our load factor remained strong at 96%, on the back of lower fares.
Regrettably over 210,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled in June because of 4 weekends of ATC strikes and repeated UK, German and French ATC staff shortages. Ryanair calls for urgent action by the EU Commission and European governments to ameliorate the effect of ATC strikes and staff shortages in the UK, Germany and France from disrupting the travel plans of millions of Europe’s consumers this summer.”
