EasyJet flights for Easter 2021 have been made available from Wednesday after the airline brought forward the on sale date by five months.

The early release covers the period including the school holidays between March 28-April 18.

The budget carrier has scheduled 39,000 flights across its network, providing more than 6.7 million seats over the Easter period.

Fares lead-in at £14.99 one-way with check-in bags at 99p for bookings made by Friday (April 24).

Fees associated with changing flights have also been waived.

Customers can change the dates of their upcoming flights to any time up to February 21 in addition to Easter.

The change fee waiver applies to both existing and new bookings until further notice, according to the carrier.

The move follows easyJet Holidays issuing early season launches for winter 2020-21 and summer 2021 earlier this month.

The airline’s chief commercial and planning officer Robert Carey said: “We know many people’s Easter holiday plans have been disrupted this year and so we’ve taken the decision to put our Easter flights for 2021 on sale early so our customers can either book a new break or, if they are rearranging their travel plans, have even more dates and destinations to choose from. 

“By booking early customers will not only get the best value on hundreds of destinations across our network but can also book hold bags for just 99p giving them something to look forward to next year.

“And we are really pleased to have added to our domestic flight network so that the regions in the UK will have a connectivity boost following the pandemic.”
