Directors’ report (extract)


easyJet works constructively with all levels of government across its network, regardless of political affiliation. easyJet believes in the rights of individuals to engage in the democratic process, however it is easyJet’s policy not to make political donations.

There were no political donations made or political expenditure incurred during the 2017 financial year (2016: £2,056). The expenditure incurred in 2016 was in relation to a visit by David Cameron to easyJet’s headquarters. This constituted political expenditure under the Companies Act 2006, as it involved the prime minister campaigning for the EU referendum.
