EasyJet to adjust volumes to cope with any economic impact from Brexit - CEO

LONDON, Sept 5 (Reuters) - British budget airline easyJet will adjust its fleet and switch volumes to react to any changes in demand if the British economy is impacted by a possible no-deal Brexit, chief executive Johan Lundgren said on Thursday.

“We do have flexibility within the fleet also to shift volumes, and we do also have a strong relationship and a good fleet plan together with Airbus so we can make sure we capture both upsides that come, and also if there is a dampening in demand in there,” Lundgren told reporters when asked how the airline was placed to deal with economic fallout from a possible no-deal Brexit on October 31.
