Easyjet has issued a third quarter trading update in which it says it expects to make pre-tax profit of between £400m and £440m - in line with market expectations.

"We remain very focused on delivering our revenue initiatives and driving costs down to enhance our profitability per seat," said Johan Lundgren, chief executive.

"EasyJet's third quarter performance was robust and despite the tougher macroeconomic conditions was in line with expectations."
