Easyjet PLC (LON:EZJ) flew an extra 1mln passengers in September compared with a year earlier, although the budget airline reported a dip in load factor.
FTSE 250-listed Easyjet carried 8.82mln passengers in September, 14% more than the 7.72mln it carried in the same month in 2017.
Load factor, an important industry metric that measures how full a plane is, slipped 0.8 percentage points to 92.8%, down from 93.6% a year earlier.
Airlines have had to cut their prices in recent years in a bid to fill their planes with as many customers as possible as competition in the sector has ramped up.
On a rolling 12-month basis, the white and orange liveried carrier flew 88.45mln passengers at a load factor of 92.9%.
That compares with 80.25mln passengers and a load factor of 92.6% for the 12 months to the end of September 2017.
