2010 a record year for Ryanair

Budget airline Ryanair has announced today that record numbers of passengers travelled on its services during 2010.

In a statement today, Ryanair said its traffic grew by 10pc from 65 million passengers to 72 million.

In August, a monthly record was set when more than 7.7 million passengers flew with the airline. However, the company’s busiest day was recorded on July 30 when more than 1,400 flights carried over 255,000 people.

Spokesman for the firm, Daniel de Carvalho said the airline’s success could be attributed to its punctuality, as well as its lowest lost luggage performance.
