EasyJet Plc reiterated its plan to gear up operations to near pre-pandemic levels through the summer high season, as an easing of travel restrictions unleashes pent-up demand.

Europe’s second-biggest discount carrier managed to narrow its estimated loss in a fiscal first half roiled by the rise of the omicron variant of Covid-19, and has turned its focus to bringing back capacity. Booking volumes for summer are currently tracking ahead of the same time in 2019, the company said.
