LONDON (Reuters) – Easyjet <EZJ.L> will return to London’s bluechip FTSE 100 <.FTSE> index from Dec. 23, along with food delivery firm Just Eat <JE.L>, after the latest quarterly review, operator FTSE Russell said on Wednesday.

Miner Fresnillo <FRES.L> and insurer Hiscox <HSX.L> will be relegated.

The demotions were widely expected based on the recent closing prices of the stocks that saw them ranked at 111 or lower.
