In their 2018 fiscal year, EasyJet generated nearly 5.9 billion British pounds, which was the highest figure since the beginning of the reporting period in 2009. This figure stood next to operating costs of roughly 3.8 billion British pounds.
As of that same year, EasyJet was employer to 14,245 people, of which the majority were male.
The company’s fleet size grew by 35 percent between 2011 and 2018, climbing to 315 aircrafts by 2018. Since 2012, EasyJet exclusively operated Airbus planes, with the A320 model (including both 180 and 186 seat versions) being the most numerous. The new A321neo was also part of the airline’s fleet as of 2018.
According to a January 2019 survey, EasyJet was the fourth most regarded airline among British respondents. 44 percent held a positive opinion of the brand.
