- Jet2 owner Dart Group said its annual adjusted profit would to be 'slightly ahead' of current market expectations, though it warned current summer bookings were being hit by consumer uncertainty.

The upbeat profit guidance was for the year just gone by through March.

However, for the current year through March 2020, Dart was somewhat less sanguine.

'We are now seeing that summer 2019 forward bookings in our leisure travel business, though positive, reflect some consumer uncertainty and that pricing for both our flight-only and package holiday products is more competitive,' the company said.

'With a considerable way to go in the leisure travel booking cycle, the board remains optimistic of meeting current market expectations of group profit before foreign exchange revaluation & taxation for the year ending 31 March 2020.' At 1:20pm: [LON:DTG] Dart Group PLC share price was -6.75p at 872.25p
