easyJet share price: what’s the latest ahead of its full-year results?

The low-cost airline unveils its annual results next week, with investors hoping for details on its new package holiday business that could help push its share price higher.

easyJet will unveil its annual results on November 19, with the airline expecting its full-year pre-tax profit to land between £420 million to £430 million – the upper range if its previous guidance.

The low-cost airline’s upbeat profit guidance is reflective of increased passenger numbers and progress the company has made on non-fuel cost savings. However, analysts forecast the carrier to record a 3% drop in pre-tax profit next week.
