However, off-peak periods will require discounting to stimulate demand.

It comes as the airline posted a pre-tax loss of £178 million.

EasyJet bookings showed higher ticket yields for spring to summer 2023, but demand falls away in winter months.

It says cheaper destinations Turkey, Egypt and the Greek islands are popular next summer.

October half-term is also selling well.
