easyJet today restarted flights from 22 airports across Europe for the first time since the end of March due to the pandemic.
The first flight from the UK took off from London Gatwick to Glasgow this morning at 7:00 a.m.
This is the same destination the airline first flew to when easyJet started operating in November 1995.
During the lock-up period, the aircraft fleet was kept in a ready-to-fly condition so that the airline could resume flights at the right time.
This means that easyJet will also restart 310 flights via the airline’s European network this week, including from London Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Belfast in the UK, mainly on domestic routes.
Some flights were resumed today on national and international routes from France, Switzerland, Italy and Portugal.
The majority of the flights in June are operated on domestic routes, with the airline planning to fly around 50 percent of its 1,022 routes in July, which will increase to around 75 percent in August, although the frequency of flights is around 30 percent normal capacity from July to September .
There are a number of additional measures to ensure the safety and well-being of all customers and crew on board.
