There should be happy faces in the EasyJet boardroom these days. The profit rose significantly from 378 million euro to an estimated 475 million euro over the last year, EasyJet announced on Thursday. The company will publish detailed results next month.

Increased demands during the summer meant good news for EasyJet, which also reduced operating costs and invested in marketing. The turnover increased by six percent per chair, while costs only rose by four percent. The company is trying to lure more corporate frequent flyers into its aircraft.
