If its forecasts are right, easyJet should report a hike in profit as it updates shareholders on its performance during the financial year on Thursday. Investors, who have cheered the meteoric share price over the last year, will not only look to see if the airline hits its targets for the year, they will also be keen to know what targets it will aim for next year, analysts said. Looking at the share price it could easily look like easyJet has enjoyed little but smooth sailing over the last 12 months. Issue date: Sunday October 8, 2023. PA Photo. See PA story CITY Forecast.

For instance, the budget Irish airline wrote on its website that people departing from the north African country must print out a physical copy of their boarding pass, as digital ones will not be accepted. Ryanair explained on its website : “If you depart from a Moroccan airport, a digital boarding pass will not be accepted. You must carry a physical printout of your boarding pass, and you’ll need to present this boarding pass at the Moroccan airport check-in facility.”

Boarding passes can be accessed via the ‘My Bookings’ section of Ryanair’s website and app. The airline went on to explain that digital boarding passes won’t be accepted in Turkey, or in Tirana, the capital city of Albania.

easyJet also shared advice for those travelling to and from Morocco and Turkey. It said: “Due to local regulations in place at Marrakech, mobile boarding passes are not available. You will need to print your boarding pass and go to Bag Drop for a document check, even if you don’t have bags to drop off.”
