Ryanair has reported an 11pc jump in passenger numbers to 10.1m in July, a monthly record for the airline.

This compared to 9.15m customers carried by the airline in the same period last year, an increase of just under 1m.

The load factor - or how many seats it fills on each flight - also jumped to 95pc from 91pc compared with the same period last year.

The Dublin-based carrier’s rolling annual traffic also increased by 15pc to 95.3m customers

Ryanair Chief Marketing Officer, Kenny Jacobs said that the customer numbers were a record. He put the increase in traffic down to the company’s “stronger forward bookings and the continuing success of our ‘Always Getting Better’ customer experience improvement programme”.
