easyJet to coat its planes with revolutionary aerodynamic paint to cut fuel bills

Budget airline easyJet is to make its aeroplanes 'slippier' in a bid to slash its fuel bills and allow cheaper ticket prices for passengers.

It is the UK's first commercial airline to apply a ultra-thin hi-tech coating - 100 times thinner than the average human hair - which smooths out microscopic 'hills and valleys' in the paint used on a  plane's fuselage.
The super-micro technology  means the jet becomes more aerodynamic and 'slippery' and can slide more efficiently through the air, cutting costly fuel bills and giving airline bosses more leeway to cut fares, they say
