Ryanair reported an increase in traffic of 12% to 10.3 million passengers in the month of December.

The figures are a combination of increased traffic on Ryanair flights during the month, and 300,000 passengers on Laudamotion, which it acquired in 2018.

Ryanair said it operated over 57,000 scheduled flights in December with over 81% arriving flights on time.

It said it delivered "the best punctuality of any major EU airline".
