EasyJet passenger numbers up 9% in November

Easyjet saw a 9% increase in the number of passengers it carried in November, despite the issues affecting Sharm el-Sheikh.

Flying to the Egyptian Red Sea resort was suspended after a Russian jet crashed in what is now believed to have been a terrorist attack. A date for the resumption of flights has still to be announced.

The budget carrier, which announced its latest figures to the City this morning, saw monthly passenger numbers of 4.8 million, up on 4.4 million in the same month last year.

The load factor for the month improved by 0.9 percentage points to 90.3%.

The November performance took the rolling 12 month passenger figure to 69.6 million, which is 6.8% up year-on-year with load factor up by one percentage point to 91.8%.

The airline reported 378 cancellations in November, up from just 16 in November 2014. It said 176 of these were for Sharm el-Sheikh while the remainder were due to adverse weather conditions.
