EasyJet will relaunch more flights from airports across Europe, including 14 departure points across the UK, on both domestic and international routes.
From July 1, the airline’s schedule will build to around 500 flights a day across its European network, including over 900 flights a week to and from the UK.
On June 15 a small number of flights began operating for the first time since the airline grounded its fleet at the end of March as a result of Covid-19.
These flights have been on mainly domestic routes from London Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Belfast. From July 1 some flights will also resume from London Luton, London Stansted, Manchester and Aberdeen.
Flights on some international routes from London Gatwick, London Luton, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Belfast will relaunch to a variety of city and beach destinations including the city staples of Paris, Milan and Barcelona.
EasyJet has increased its capacity across beach destinations from the UK for July and August. Summer sun favourites offered include the Balearics and Canary Islands and lively beach destinations across Greece, Croatia and Portugal – all with great value fares still available.
The airline will also launch a brand-new summer route from Gatwick to Stockholm on July 20 with fares available from £39.99 and will be on sale in the coming days.
The airline will also resume some flying from main bases in The Netherlands and Germany for the first time, as well as on more domestic and international routes from France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Portugal.
It plans to fly around 50% of its 1,022 routes in July increasing to around 75% in August, although with a lower frequency of flights equating to around 30% of normal July to September capacity.
A new range of additional measures are in place to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew onboard. These include enhanced aircraft disinfection for easyJet aircraft; customers, cabin crew and ground crew will be required to wear masks; there will also initially be no food service onboard flights, all of which operate on a short-haul network. The measures have been implemented in consultation with aviation authorities ICAO and EASA, and in line with relevant national authorities and medical advice through the airline’s chief medical adviser.
