More flights are being relaunched by easyJet across Europe from July 1, including 14 airports across the UK.

The schedule will grow to around 500 flights a day on both domestic and international routes, including more than 900 flights a week to and from the UK.

Some international routes from Gatwick, Luton, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Belfast will relaunch to city and beach destinations including Paris, Milan and Barcelona.

The UK budget carrier has increased capacity across beach destinations from the UK for July and August, including the Balearics and Canary Islands, Greece, Croatia and Portugal ahead of govenment confirmation of air bridges to certain countries on June 29 for travel from July.

A new summer route from Gatwick to Stockholm starts on July 20 with fares starting at £39.99.

EasyJet resumed operations on June 15 with a small number of services for the first since the fleet was grounded at the end of March due to Covid-19.

These flights have been on mainly domestic routes from Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Belfast. Some flights will also resume from July 1 from Luton, Stansted, Manchester and Aberdeen.

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.

Around half of of its 1,022 routes will be flown in July increasing to around 75% in August, although with a lower frequency, 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; passengers, cabin crew and ground crew will be required to wear masks and there will also initially be no food service on flights.

Chief commercial and strategy officer Robert Carey said: “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.

“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.”
