Ryanair: “We expect traffic and average fares to continue to benefit from a better mix of new routes and bases, and competitor fuel surcharges. We expect our unit cost performance in Q4 to be marginally better thanks to the launch of new routes in February and March which will reduce the number of grounded aircraft by comparison with Q3. Accordingly, we are now confident that our Q4 and full-year results will be towards the upper end of our previously guided range of a net profit after tax of between EUR380 million to EUR400 million,” Company statement.
