EasyJet to restart UK flights from June 15th
EasyJet is to resume flights from June 15th, the company has announced.
The schedule will focus on domestic flights in the UK and France.
It’s hoped further routes can be added as lockdown measure across Europe are eased.
The UK airports served by EasyJet include Belfast, Bristol, Edinburgh, Inverness, Liverpool, and Newcastle.
And there is a flight between Gatwick and Nice, France.
Johan Lundgren, EasyJet chief executive, said:
“I am really pleased that we will be returning to flying in the middle of June.
“These are small and carefully planned steps that we are taking to gradually resume operations.
“We will continue to closely monitor the situation across Europe so that, when more restrictions are lifted, the schedule will continue to build over time to match demand, while also ensuring we are operating efficiently and on routes that our customers want.
“The safety and wellbeing of our customers remains our highest priority, which is why we are implementing a number of measures to enhance 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.”
