easyJet returns to skies following Covid-19 lockdown

easyJet has relaunched flights from 22 airports across Europe for the first time since operations ceased at the end of March as a result of the pandemic.

The first flight from the UK took off from London Gatwick at 07:00 for Glasgow.

This is the same destination the airline first flew to when easyJet first launched operations in November 1995.

During the lockdown period the fleet of aircraft has been maintained in a flight ready condition to enable the airline to resume flights at the right time. 

This means that easyJet also will relaunch 310 flights this week across the airline’s European network including from London Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Belfast in the UK, on mainly domestic routes.

Some flights also resumed today on domestic and international routes from France, Switzerland, Italy and Portugal.
