Ryanair's traffic increased by 1% compared with August 2012 and annual traffic to the end of August was up 2% to over 80m passengers.

The load factor increased by 1% to 89% in the month of August while the load factor for the year to the end of August was 82%.

Ryanair said it's the first airline in Europe to carry over 9m passengers in a month.

Aer Lingus reported that total flown passenger numbers, including Aer Lingus Regional operations, increased by 0.9% to 1,126,000 in August 2013 compared to August 2012.

Short haul flown passengers, including Aer Lingus Regional, in August 2013 were 1,005,000, a decrease of 0.8% on August 2012, while long haul flown passengers in August 2013 were 121,000, an increase of 17.5% on August 2012

Aer Lingus mainline’s flown passenger load factor in August 2013 decreased by 0.7 points on August 2012 to 86.6%. Short haul flown load factor was 82.1%, a decrease of 2.5 points on August 2012, with capacity decreasing by 1.9%. The airline said it "previously noted in our 2013 first half results outlook statement that good weather conditions in July had somewhat eroded our forward booking profile. The impact of this is reflected in our August short haul figures. Long haul flown load factor was 94.9%, an increase of 1.7 points on August 2012, with capacity increasing by 15.7% on prior year."
