The i has seen continued year-on-year growth since its launch 30 months ago and its sales have grown by 11 per cent since March 2012.
Once again, i saw month-on-month growth higher than any other newspaper. Its sister paper, The Independent, also saw a small increase in average daily sales, up 0.2% to 75,274.
Across the market, tabloid newspapers suffered minor sales falls in March, while the quality papers recovered slightly.
Sales of The Sun were down 0.11% to 2,279,492, with a 12.82% year on year, while the Daily Mail's average daily sale dropped 0.41% to 1,821,684 - a fall of 6.7% from March 2012.
