The Irish airline of economic flights Ryanair reported today that it transported 10.4 million passengers during the past November, 11% more than in the same month of 2017, while the load factor, which measures the number of seats occupied in each flight, remained at 96%.
Ryanair also includes in its traffic analysis the 0.3 million customers who flew in November with the newly acquired LaudaMotion, a line founded by the Austrian ex-Formula One driver Niki Lauda and emerged from the Niki creek.
The director of communications of the Irish airline, Kenny Jacobs, attributed the increase in passengers, among other factors, to the offer of "cheap rates" and the "success" of the flight schedule for the winter season.
According to the executive, the leading airline in Europe in the low-cost sector operated "more than 56,000" journeys in November, of which "more than 88%" were punctual.
"At the same time that Ryanair continues to offer the lowest fares, it is the most punctual among the main airlines of the European Union," Jacobs added in the note.
