EASYJET today posted a 10.5 per cent jump in third revenues to £1.1bn, attributed to increased capacity and improvement in revenue per seat.

The budget airline forecast pre-tax profits for the full year to be between £450m and £480m, compared to £317m last year.

EasyJet has delivered a strong performance in the third quarter in a benign capacity environment for easyJet,” said chief executive Carolyn McCall.

“The strong performance demonstrates further progress against the easyJet strategy and the commitment to deliver returns and profitable growth for shareholders.”
