Ryanair saw its passenger traffic increase to 8.5 million customers in February, a 5pc increase on the previous year.

The load factor for the month remained unchanged year-on-year at 95pc.

"Ryanair's February traffic grew by 5pc to 8.6m customers, while our load factor remains strong at 95pc, on the back of lower fares," Ryanair's Kenny Jacobs, said.

Rolling annual traffic to February grew 9pc to 130 million customers, the low-fares airline said.

Mr Jacobs went on to say that customers could look forward to more low fares as well as an improved customer service experience as the airline continues to roll out its 'Always Getting Better' improvements.

The airline is currently engaged in a €750m share buyback programme which it announced earlier this year.
