Monday, February 7, 2005 London - Low-fares airline easyJet today announced that passenger figures for January rose to over 2.08m, a 23.8% rise on 2004. Load-factor dropped slightly to 76.4% whilst average yields only fell 2% between October and December. After what was expected to be a tough winter period for the airline industry--with the flamboyant Ryanair CEO Micheal O' Leary having stated in December that a "bloodbath" was to take place in the European aviation industry--the figures were better than expected.
