Ryanairs Kenny Jacobs commented, “Ryanair’s November traffic grew by 15% to 8.8m customers, on the back of lower fares and the continuing success of our “Always Getting Better” customer experience programme.
"Customers can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for summer 2017, so there’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight on Ryanair and we urge all customers who wish to book their summer 2017 holidays to do so now on the Ryanair.com website or mobile app, where they can avail of the lowest fares in Europe."
