easyJet has revealed its passenger data for June 2016 and for the rolling 12-month period to the end of June.
During June the airline had 6,937,601 booked passengers, which was 5.8% more than the 6,559,802 booked in June 2015. The load factors for the respective months were 94.1% and 92.7%, so there was a 1.4 percentage point increase in June 2016 over June 2015.
Booked passengers, sometimes referred to as earned seats, include seats that are flown whether or not the passenger turns up because easyJet is a no-refund airline, and once a flight has departed a no-show customer is generally not entitled to change flights or seek a refund.
For the rolling 12 months ending June 2016 the airline reported 71,872,886 booked passengers compared with 67,107,913 in the 12 months to the end of June 2015, a 7.1% increase. The respective load factors were 91.5% and 91.2%.
In June 2016, there were 852 cancellations during the month, compared with 487 in June 2015.
