EasyJet pushes for business travellers

30 January 2012

Rising baggage charges and weakening competition helped EasyJet push up revenues per seat by 8 per cent in the three months to December, buoying investor confidence.

The mild winter also helped Europe’s second-biggest budget carrier, with an absence of snow-related disruptions boosting the number of seats flown in its first quarter and subduing unit costs other than fuel.

But innovations aimed at boosting the number of higher-paying business passengers are not yet proving drivers of top-line growth. Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, EasyJet’s founder and biggest shareholder, on Thursday lambasted management for trumpeting an incremental, 200,000-person rise in the number of passengers who said they were travelling on business.
