- Ryanair said its March 2017 customer numbers were up 10% to 9.4m, with load factor steady at 94%.

"Our rolling annual traffic reached 120m (and was up 13%)," said the affordable airline.

"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."
