UK budget airline easyJet’s bookings jumped by 50 per cent last week on positive news about a coronavirus vaccine.
Chief Executive Johan Lundgren cautioned that while the positive vaccine news was a boost, it was still “early days” and he said he could forecast when travel would pick-up.
“There is no visibility really beyond the quarter, because this is all down to the travel restrictions,” he told reporters on a call.
“No, we think we’re in a good position … at this moment in time,” Lundgren said on BBC radio when asked if easyJet would need to raise more money.
He said that the airline would keep its finances under review given the continued uncertainty ahead.
Shares in the airline traded down 1 per cent to 768 pence at 1008 GMT in a release which Goodbody analysts said contained “no surprises … which can be taken well.”
