Benjamin Purvis

Ryanair said the number of passengers it carried in May increased to 6.44 million from 5.51 million in the same month a year earlier.

The budget airline’s load factor for May remained unchanged at 81pc, according to an emailed statement today.

The booked passenger and load factor figures for May include “up to 250,000 passengers’’ who were booked to fly on flights cancelled due to airspace closures following the volcanic eruptions in Iceland, the carrier said.
