Shares of easyJet PLC (LON: EZJ) fell around 8% today after the airline said it has slashed capacity for the final quarter of this year amid the new quarantine restrictions


The United Kingdom added seven Greek islands to the mandatory quarantine list while some other European countries java moved to tighten restrictions. Therefore, easyJet now expects to fly slightly less than the 40% of planned capacity for the ending three months of the year.

“We know our customers are as frustrated as we are with the unpredictable travel and quarantine restrictions,” said chief executive Johan Lundgren.

“We called on the Government to opt for a targeted, regionalised and more predictable and structured system of quarantine many weeks ago so customers could make travel plans with confidence.”
