easyJet are to “ramp up” their services from late May once restrictions ease for the summer holiday season.
The budget airline expect to fly up to 20% of 2019 capaicty levels between April and June.
Chief executive Johan Lundgren said, “We continue to closely monitor the situation across Europe and, with vaccination programmes accelerating, most countries are planning to resume flying at scale in May.
“We have the operational flexibility to rapidly increase flying and add destinations to match demand.
“EasyJet is ready to resume flying, prepared for the ramp-up and looking forward to being able to reunite people with their families or take them on leisure and business flights once again.”
He added, “EasyJet was founded to make travel accessible for all and so we continue to engage with Government to ensure that the cost of the required testing is driven down so that it doesn’t risk turning back the clock and make travel too costly for some.”
