EasyJet will be relaunching more flights from airports across Europe, including 14 airports across the UK, on both domestic and international routes.

    The schedule will grow to around 500 flights a day across its European network, including over 900 flights a week to and from the UK.

    On 15 June, a small number of EasyJet 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.

    Some flights will also resume from London Luton, London Stansted, Manchester and Aberdeen from the start of July.

    Some international routes from London Gatwick, London Luton, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Belfast will relaunch to a variety of city and beach destination, including Paris, Milan and Barcelona.

    EasyJet has also increased its capacity across beach destinations from the UK for July and August, including the Balearics and Canary Islands and beach destinations across Greece, Croatia and Portugal.

    The low-cost airline will also launch a brand new summer route from Gatwick to Stockholm on 20 July.

    The carrier 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.

    EasyJet plans to fly around 50 per cent of its 1022 routes in July increasing to around 75 per cent in August, although with a lower frequency of flights equating to around 30 per cent of normal July to September capacity.  

    EasyJet chief commercial and strategy officer, Robert Carey, commented:

    “We are really pleased to be relaunching even more of our flights from 1 July and starting to get customers away on their much-needed summer holidays.

    “With so many families travelling over the peak summer easyJet has teamed up with a superhero illustrator to create comic book inspired face mask covers for children flying this summer to help ease the experience for both kids and parents.

    “Irish artist Will Sliney, best known for his work on Marvel comics Spider-Man and Star Wars, has created a range of new comic book inspired face mask covers for young easyJet flyers.

    “Of course, the safety and wellbeing of our customers and crew remains our highest priority. This is why we have implemented a number of measures enhancing safety at each part of the journey from disinfecting the aircraft to requiring customers and crew to wear masks.

    “These measures will remain in place for as long as is needed to ensure customers and crew are able to fly safely as the world continues to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”
