Easyjet has announced steep losses due to the pandemic but says it is ready to "ramp up" for summer holiday demand, APA reports citing BBC.

The airline says it expects to make a pre-tax loss of £690-730m in the six months to 31 March, which is slightly better than expected.

Its boss says it is "ready to resume flying, prepared for the ramp up and looking forward" to people travelling as lockdown restrictions ease.

But he also warns that tests required for passengers may be too costly.

Foreign holidays are currently banned, and returning travellers have to quarantine on arrival. The earliest possible date for foreign travel from England has previously been given as 17 May, but it has not been confirmed.
