The bonus will be available for all new and existing crew, who will receive the payout in October as a reward for their efforts during this summer’s travel boom.

It matches British Airways’ £1,000 golden handshake for trained staff who join from rival carriers. Unlike BA’s proposal, easyJet’s award will also be paid to its current crew.
