EasyJet says it is cancelling some flights, including services into and out of Italy, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
The airline says that, following the increased number of coronavirus cases in Northern Italy, it has seen “a significant softening of demand and load factors into and out of our Northern Italian bases”.
“Further, we are also seeing some slower demand across our other European markets,” it added.
“As a result we will be making decisions to cancel some flights, particularly those into and out of Italy, while continuing to monitor the situation and adapting our flying programme to support demand.
“While it is too early to determine what the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak will be on current year outlook and guidance for both the Airline and Holidays business, we continue to monitor the situation carefully and will update the market in due course.”
