“Ryanair’s March traffic grew by 28% to 8.5m customers, while our load factor jumped 4% points to 94%. These record monthly numbers were delivered (despite 3 days of unjustified French ATC strikes in March which caused the cancellation of over 500 flights) due to our lower fares, stronger forward bookings and the continuing success of our “AGB” programme.

Our 106m customers can look forward to further improvements in 2016 as we will shortly launch Year 3 of “AGB”.”
