Ryanair chief marketing officer said: "Ryanair’s August traffic grew by 11% to 11.5m customers, while our load factor jumped 1% point to 96%. Lower fares post-Brexit and the continuing success of our "Always Getting Better" customer experience programme continue to deliver even more great value for our rapidly growing customer base. As our recent guidance confirmed, Ryanair expects average fares to fall by between 10% to 12% in the six months to March 2017. There’s never been a better time to book a low fare flight on Ryanair."
