Ryanair’sKenny Jacobs said: “Ryanair’s Marchtraffic grew by 10% to 9.4m customers, while our load factor was unchanged (despite the absence of Easter)from last year at94%, on the back of lower fares and the continuing success of our “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme. Our rolling annual traffic reached 120m.March traffic was also impacted by the cancellation of over 530 flights due to repeated ATC and some handling strikes, which cut our traffic by approx. 100,000 customers.
We call on the French Government and European Commission to take action to prevent another summer of ATC disruptions and urge all customers to sign the A4E online petition, Keep Europe’s Skies Open, to help protect Europe from repeated disruption by ATC unions.”
