EasyJet is forecasting full year profits of between £675m and £700m, on the back of continued strength in passenger numbers.
Last month, the number of seats occupied on EasyJet flights hit 6.6m – a 7.6 per cent increase from 6.1m during September 2014.
A similar increase took place in full-year flight numbers, with a total of 68.6m seats booked on the low-cost airline over the 12 months to September. This was a six per cent rise on the previous year's 64.8m.
Shares have been unaffected by the news, and are currently just 0.17 per cent down at £18.05.

September's positive result follows on from a record-breaking 7.1m passengers recorded by the airline in August.
This amounted to 94.4 per cent of seats on flights during the month, and caused the company to raise its guidance for the full year.
