Ryanair, Europe’s largest low fare airlines today (5th August) announced that it carried almost 5.7 million passengers in July, a 19% (900,000 passenger) increase when compared to July 2007.
Ryanair is confident that traffic growth will remain strong as Ryanair continues to offer passengers the guaranteed lowest airfares and no fuel surcharges this winter.

The most significant thing about today’s figures is that we carried over 15million passengers in the last three months. Passengers are increasingly attracted to Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares and our promise of no fuel surcharges ever”.
