Ryanair has reported another rise in monthly passenger figures despite the ongoing disruptions caused by the air traffic control strikes in France.

The airline said its passenger numbers for May rose by 12% to 10.6 million from 9.5 million the same time last year.

Its load factor - or how many seats it fills on each flight - was also higher, moving up to 94% in May of this year compared to 92% in May 2015.
