Budget airline easyJet has enjoyed a better-than-expected summer thanks to cheaper fuel costs and a summer advertising campaign.

The Luton-based airline announced pre-tax profits would be £280m and £300m in the year to September 30, up from previous guidance of £272m and last year's £248m.

easyJet attributes the rise in revenue to its commercial featuring music from Liverpool band The Wombats.
