Ryanair shares rose to a new record high after it attracted one million extra passengers in December.

Shares were up more than 3% to $10.14 - the price has grown by 58% over the past year.

Ryanair said its passenger numbers were up 20% to 6.02 million in December. The budget airline said seat occupancy was 88% in the final month of 2014, compared with 81% last year.

It comes following huge strives made by Ryanair to improve customers service and its overall customer experience.
