saw 6.5 million passengers in June, a 4.6% increase on June 2012. June 2013 saw some recovery of traffic due to the extra Jubilee Bank Holiday last year, which was only partially offset by the French ATC dispute disrupting operations on the 11th and 12th. Adjusting for these effects would result in an underlying increase of 3.6% on June 2012.
