easyJet costs increase by £40 million since Brexit, CEO claims

Luton-based easyJet say its costs have increased by £40 million since last month's EU referendum result.

The pound has lost 10% of its value against the dollar since the vote while the company's shares have dropped by 6%.

The low-cost airline claims revenue has fallen, and recent events in Nice and Turkey have also knocked consumer confidence.

They have also been forced to offer cheaper farers this summer in a bid to get more people to fly.

The economic and operating environment has been difficult in the third quarter due to a number of factors including air traffic control strikes and other industrial action, runway closures at London Gatwick and severe weather.

These factors combined with industry capacity growth in short haul continue to have an impact on industry yields at a peak time of year.

More recently currency volatility as a result of the UK’s referendum decision to leave the EU as well as the recent events in Turkey and Nice continue to impact consumer confidence.
