An Airbus A320-214 commercial plane registration HB-JZR of low-cost carrier EasyJet is seen landing at Geneva Airport on November 20, 2017 in Geneva.

Budget airline easyJet PLC /zigman2/quotes/202825892/delayed UK:EZJ +0.58%  is returning to the FTSE 100 index /zigman2/quotes/210598409/delayed UK:UKX +1.04%  after a six-month absence in the latest reshuffle alongside food-delivery platform Just Eat PLC /zigman2/quotes/205192708/delayed UK:JE -1.70% , FTSE Russell confirmed late Wednesday.

The companies are replacing Bermuda-based reinsurance company Hiscox Ltd. /zigman2/quotes/202830554/delayed UK:HSX +1.06% , which has only been in the index for a year and gold miner Fresnillo PLC /zigman2/quotes/201300065/delayed UK:FRES +0.57% , which has been a member since March 2009.

EasyJet left the index in June after a stint of more than six years.

The changes are due to become effective from close of business on Friday Dec. 20.
