Ryanair carries more passengers
Ryanair has reported a rise in October passenger traffic despite having to stomach more than 300 flight cancellations due to bad weather, strikes and air traffic control staff shortages.
The Irish low-cost airline reported an 11 per cent rise in traffic, including its Lauda unit, to 13.1 million for the month, up from 11.8 million the year before. Load factor for the month remained flat year-on-year at 96 per cent. On a month-on month basis, traffic remained flat.
