The British low-cost airline Easyjet has given itself financial freedom by selling some of its aircraft. The company has sold 23 devices for $ 771 million (around 650 million euros), the company said on Friday. Easyjet will continue to use the aircraft under a lease agreement.
After completing the sale and leaseback program, Easyjet has raised more than 2.65 billion euros (£ 2.4 billion) since the corona pandemic began, the airline said in a statement.
Like the entire industry, Easyjet is suffering from falling passenger numbers. The UK government has also introduced a quarantine obligation for people returning from vacation destinations such as Spain and France.
