Easyjet to restart flights from 15th June
Easyjet announced today that they are committed to restarting flights from June 15th, with all passengers and crew required to wear face masks.
The budget airline will resume a “small number” of flights, mainly on domestic routes in the UK and France, where “there is sufficient customer demand to support profitable flying”.
An Easyjet spokesperson said they plan to introduce new routes over the coming weeks, as coronavirus lockdowns ease, and customer demand rises, but customers, cabin crew, and ground crew must wear face masks, and they will carry out “enhanced” cleaning and disinfection of the aircraft.
They will also make disinfectant wipes and hand sanitiser available, and forego an in-flight food service for now.
“We will continue to refine our schedule planning, and our capacity expectations for the remainder of 2020, which will be confirmed in due course, whilst also continuing our focus on minimising cash burn,” Easyjet added.
“The measures have been implemented in consultation with aviation authorities ICAO and EASA, and in line with government and medical advice.”
