EasyJet has reported a 21% increase in annual pre-tax profits after rise in passenger numbers.
The budget airline said profits for the year to the end of September were £581m, up from £487m.
EasyJet raised its capacity this year, buying extra slots at Gatwick airport from its rival Flybe. That led to 64.8 million passengers using the airline in the year, 7% more than last year.
It also suggested that falling fuel prices are likely to save it £22m in the next six months.
The airline also announced plans to increase its dividend to 40%, up from a third.
The recession is over. It's time to grow!
