Mr Lundgren said: “I have flown with and been a fan of EasyJet and its wonderful people for many years.

“This is an exciting time to be joining Europe’s leading airline. Carolyn has built a fantastic team and with them I look forward to contributing to EasyJet’s continued success.”

To mitigate the impact, EasyJet has applied for a new air operator’s certificate (AOC) in Austria to allow it to continue flying in the European Union after Britain’s divorce from the bloc.
