Easyjet to resume 75% of flight network by August

Written by:
Easyjet will resume 75% of its route network by August, with plans to fly half of these in July.

The airline said it plans to fly 50% of its 1,022 routes in July and 75% in August. But with lower frequency of flights, this means around 30% of its usual capacity for the summer months.

Customers will be able to book flights to and from all Easyjet UK bases in July and August to a number of city and beach holiday destinations such as Paris, Rome, Canary Islands, Croatia, Egypt and Morocco.

The announcement comes as Easyjet launches a flight sale offering destinations across Europe from £29.99 for travel between 1 July and 31 October 2020.

Robert Carey, chief commercial and planning officer at Easyjet said: “We are delighted to announce that we will be flying the majority of our route network across Europe, meaning customers can still get to their chosen destination for their summer holidays this year.

“We’re passionate about helping our customers get back flying, which is why we’re offering one million seats at £29.99 for those planning on booking a holiday this summer. Travel restrictions are being lifted and demand is starting to return, so there’s no better time for us to introduce this sale.”

The airline has confirmed that some flights will initially resume from the 15 June including from London Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Belfast in the UK.

It will bring in additional safety measures amid the coronavirus pandemic, including enhanced aircraft disinfection, customers and crew will be required to wear face masks and it will not offer a food service onboard.
