Press: easyJet wants more services, revenue

EasyJet PLC chief executive Andrew Harrison told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper that it wants to increase its earnings per passenger to 6 eur from 3 eur by 2008 by offering more services. ‘We will reduce our costs,’ Harrison told the newspaper. ‘And naturally we will also offer passengers other services including more car rentals, hotel bookings and more in-flight shopping.’

The newspaper wrote that Ryanair Holdings, Europe’s largest discount carrier, currently earns 7 eur per passenger.
