Ryanair, the largest operator at Stansted Airport, carried 8.3million passengers across its network in June 2014, a 5.0% rise on the June 2013 total, while easyJet passenger levels reached nearly 6.1m last month, an increase of 10.1%.

Both carriers had to axe a number of flights due to the French strike towards the end of last month.

A total of 82.7m people have flown with Ryanair in the 12 months ending June 2014, its highest 12-month figure ever and a 3% rise on the figure for the year ending June 2013.

And easyJet has carried 63.37m passengers in the 12 months since the end of June 2014, a 5.4% increase on the total for the 12 months ending June 2013.
