Ryanair’s November traffic was down 82% as just two million holidaymakers took flights in the month.

This is half the 4.1 million passengers it served in October and down from its peak 7 million reported for August 2020

However, the figures are up from the trough of just 40,000 customers seen in April at the height of the pandemic.

Compared to November 2019, traffic was down from the 10.9 million customers who flew with the budget airline.

Last month Ryanair announced it would cut its winter flight schedule (November to March) from a 60% to 40% capacity due to weaker bookings as EU governments impose tougher travel restrictions.

It added that with the reduced winter capacity, it expects full year traffic to fall to approximately 38 million flyers.
