Easyjet in 'right place' to meet summer demand, says boss

05/20/2022 | 01:21am

EASYJET is "in the right place" to meet the summer demand, according to chief executive Johan Lundgren.

The airline reported that bookings had reached pre-pandemic levels in the last 10 weeks, with the number of tickets sold increasing by 15 per cent on 2019 levels. Lundgren said the airline was "absolutely focused" on increasing its operational resilience after a disastrous Easter period.

"It has been well documented that the industry is experiencing some operational issues so, as you would expect, we have been absolutely focused on taking action to ensure we have strengthened our operational resilience for this summer so we can deliver a great, reliable operation to our customers," Lundgren told reporters this morning.

The carrier was forced to cancel hundreds of flights in the run up to Easter because of a spike in the number of Covid infections among its staff. Lundgren's words came after Easyjet narrowed its pandemic losses from £645m to £557m.
