Budget airline easyJet announced today that its forward bookings had returned to normal levels. However there was still concern that the increase in security demands at British airports could hinder demand.
Chief Executive Andy Harrison said to an industry conference in London: Financially our bookings are back to normal. Our concern is the airport experience is much worse than it used to be. How long will customers have to put up with it?
He added that The UK government needs to make some decisions quickly. He called for a â€œsensible solutionâ€ to the problems caused by tighter hand luggage control and security at airports.
The events on 10th August in which police said they had foiled a plot to bomb airlines running from Britain to the US, led to easyJet canceling 469 of its flights.
