STANSTED operator EasyJet will follow Ryanair's lead and reduce flights this winter, as problems in the aviation industry continue to grow.
Spiralling fuel costs are at the centre of the decision to reduce its flight capacity by 12 per cent this winter.
Ryanair recently took the decision to cut 250 flights from the same stretch of tarmac at the beginning of July.
A spokesman for Stansted owners BAA said: "We anticipated some cuts in services by EasyJet given the difficult global economic conditions and high oil price."
