Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair said its traffic rose by 10pc in February to 8.2 million passengers.

The airline announced that traffic last month grew by 800,000 passengers compared to the same period in 2016.

On an annual basis, the company said traffic had risen by 14.1pc to 119 million customers.

Ryanair said that an improvement in its customer services policy had contributed to the increase in numbers.

“Ryanair’s lower fares and Always Getting Better services are leading to slightly higher than expected load factors in Q4 and accordingly we now expect full year traffic to just about hit 120m, up almost 13pc over the 106.4m customers we carried in full year 2016,” said Ryanair's Kenny Jacobs.
