Low fares helped lift Ryanair carryings by 6.3% last month to 9.3 million passengers.

The budget airline’s load factor in November rose by a single percentage point to 96%, compared to the same month last year.

The rise from 8.8 million passengers in November 2016 gave the airline rolling annual traffic growth of 11% to 128.7 million.

Ryanair chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: “Ryanair’s November traffic grew by 6% to 9.3m customers, while our load factor jumped 1% to 96%, on the back of lower fares.”
