EasyJet boosted its June passenger numbers 1.9% year on year, to 5.5 million.

Load factor was unchanged, at 89.9%.

The UK low-cost airline says it cancelled 585 flights last month, compared with 22 in June 2012. "The increase in cancellations was predominantly driven by the French air traffic control strike," says EasyJet.
