EasyJet says the disruption to flights caused by the drone sightings at Gatwick airport in December has cost it about £15m.

It paid out £10m in “customer welfare costs” and said it had lost £5m of revenues due to flight cancellations.

EasyJet said the incident affected around 82,000 customers and led to more than 400 flights being cancelled.

However, the carrier also said it had made a good start to the year and was “well prepared” for Brexit.
