At the start of the winter, there are many uncertainties, said company leader Johan Lundgren at the presentation of the final figures for the past financial year 2020/21, which ended on 30 September.

The Government in London had aggravated the conditions for entrants for the end of the past week in response to the disturbing findings about the omikron variant. Accordingly, a PCR test is mandatory at the end of the second day after arrival in England at the latest. Until the receipt of a negative result, a quarantine obligation applies. For incoming from several African countries even without exception a ten-day quarantine is valid in the hotel.

Because of the uncertainties, EasyJet is now planning only a capacity of 65 percent of the 2018/19 financial year in the first quarter of the current financial year, which was not yet affected by Corona. In October, Easyjet was still announced to increase them to 70 percent. This value should now be achieved in the second quarter.

Lundgren: In the crisis is also a chance

Nevertheless, Lundgren also sees a chance in the crisis: "We are aware of the many uncertainties, while we navigate through this winter, but we see a unique opportunity for Easyjet to win customers and competitors at this time cancel market shares, "says the EasyJet boss.

With regard to the second half of the financial year, Lundgren spent optimism again. He continues to assume that the capacities will be near the pre-corona level in the coming summer, ie the fourth quarter of the year.

EasyJet generated a pre-tax loss of around 1.14 billion British pounds in the past fiscal year - with the minus in the context of the highlighted span. In 2019/20, the Company had a shortfall before taxes of 835 million pounds.
