Budget airline easyJet PLC EZJ, +5.13%  is returning to the FTSE 100 index UKX, +0.42%  after a six-month absence in the latest reshuffle alongside food-delivery platform Just Eat PLC JE, +0.16%, FTSE Russell confirmed late Wednesday.

The companies are replacing Bermuda-based reinsurance company Hiscox Ltd. HSX, -0.74%, which has only been in the index for a year and gold miner Fresnillo PLC FRES, -6.39%, which has been a member since March 2009.

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