EasyJet remains on track to confirm possession of a European AOC by summer 2017 and therefore secure its future operations within the EU.

EasyJet may further expand seasonal operations in Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia as the airline prepares to launch six new routes later in summer 2017.

But it will close its Hamburg base at the end of the winter season...

EasyJet (UK) could look at buying more A321neos instead of smaller A320neos, as the firm tries to reduce costs and increase capacity on busy European routes.

EasyJet is ready to invest in Sardinia, with an eye on opening a base in Olbia.

EasyJet took delivery of the first of 130 A320neos on order, serial 7649, which will be based out of London Luton Airport, operating on flights to Amsterdam, Madrid and Edinburgh in June 2017.

If you read the text, you can see they recruited more than1200 in the last year (5500 to 6900).
From this years press release I understand they will recruit another 1200.
What is wrong with using identical press releases if you are doing the same thing year after year?

Air Caraibes (Guadeloupe) and French Blue would like to partner with easyJet on flights connecting to Paris Orly, in a deal similar to the easyJet/Norwegian partnership.

easyJet new Worldwide by Easyjet offering partnered with Corsair International (France), La Compagnie (France), NEOS (Italy) and Aurigny (Guernsey), with the partner airlines being able to feed their long-haul flights into easyJet’s network by end 2017.

It looks like easyJet is running much faster than Ryanair in partnering with other airlines!
