easyJet reports €1.4 billion annual loss; worst result in its 25-year history


easyJet today published its full year results of the financial year ending 30 September 2020. The airline announces an annual loss of €1.4 billion (£1.27 billion), the worst financial result in the 25-year history of easyJet. 

Johan Lundgren, CEO of the airline, says to have responded decisively and robustly to face the (coronavirus) challenges of 2020. With a large restructuring program, the airline was able to reduce costs and cash burn in order to minimise losses.

For the first quarter of 2021, easyJet expects to fly just 20% of its planned capacity but remains flexible to ramp up when demand returns.

Despite the heavy loss, however, Lundgren remains hopeful for the future of the airline: “we will bounce back strongly. Certainly with the recent news of a possible COVID-19 vaccine roll out.”

Bart Noëth: Since 1996, I have been working in the Belgian airline industry, from a weekend job as a cabin aircraft cleaner to a flight attendant. After the demise of Sabena - in 2001, I created a website called www.luchtzak.be, originally a meeting place for plane spotters and aviation freaks. Since 2017, the website changed into a professional news site. Next to aviation, I love to travel, wine and dine and enjoy my time off(-line) with my girlfriend, friends and family. My favourite football squad is KV Mechelen, I am an Ironman 70.3 finisher and my ambition is to complete a full Ironman.
