Despite rising passenger numbers in the last quarter of last year, Ryanair’s profits have fallen 8% to 95m euros. Falling prices and the weak pound have both affected results. However, the company’s planes have been flying at 95% capacity with a 16% rise in passenger numbers. According to the company, the price of its fares fell faster than ‘initially planned’. The average fare was 33 euros per passenger. The company expects that fare prices will continue to drop because of uncertainty after Brexit, the falling pound and the effect of events in North Africa. Like other airlines, Ryanair is adding more aircraft and the extra capacity is likely to force prices downwards. The company says that it is still "maintaining its full-year profit guidance in the range of 1.30bn to 1.35bn euros". Ryanair chief financial officer Neil Sorahan speaking to the BBC said: "There's a huge amount of capacity which has migrated out of North Africa into the likes of Portugal and Spain," "That said, Ryanair is very focused on our costs and you would have seen in the quarter our unit costs, excluding fuel, were down 6% at a time when our competitors are actually seeing their costs rise. "It's the reason we're making the kind of profits that we made... and why we're retaining our [profit] guidance." Mr Sorahan has said that the company will pursue more opportunities outside of the UK post-Brexit.
