The share price has been cruising to new altitudes of late and this update provides further vindication. The strong increase in revenue, improved load factors and largely booked advanced seats have all contributed to what will likely be a much lower loss at the halfway stage.

First half guidance for both revenues and costs has improved and the company expects interim losses to be in the range of £50m to £75m... Overall, a very strong interim management statement which demonstrates EasyJet’s revenues per seat continue to grow strongly.
