Its load factor - the extent to which planes were full - jumped one percentage point to 94pc.

Chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said the figures were monthly records, and achieved despite "the repeated disruptions caused by unacceptable French ATC strikes, and we are again calling on the European Commission to urgently take action to reduce the impact of these ATC strikes on Europe's citizens and the single market."

The update was silent on the UK's Brexit vote. Chief executive Michael O'Leary was a prominent campaigner for "Remain" and has said in the aftermath of the referendum that the airline would likely pivot investment out of the UK towards Europe.
