Icelandair and easyJet have entered into a partnership agreement with Icelandair joining Worldwide by easyJet, a flights connections platform.
The low-cost carrier said it will cut flying capacity in response to the ever-changing quarantine restrictions imposed by the UK government. Seven Greek islands were earlier removed from the UK safe list.
easyJet has reported revenue of just £7 million for the three months to June 30th, down an astonishing 99.6 per cent when compared to the £1.76 billion for the same period last year.
easyJet has announced it will operate a new route to the Greek island of Santorini, becoming the first airline to fly the route from London Luton Airport this summer.
The protests – which will take place in Newcastle, Southend tomorrow and at Stansted – come after staff voted in favour of a no confidence ballot in easyJet chief operating officer Peter Bellew.
The airline will resume flying to more summer destinations from the UK, including across Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Montenegro, Croatia, the Balearics and the Canary Islands.
The Unite union said nearly 1,300 crew members faced losing their jobs in the UK, while Balpa said as many as 700 UK-based pilots could also be made redundant by the decision.
easyJet has confirmed it will be relaunching more flights from airports across Europe, including 14 airports across the UK, on both domestic and international routes.
The carrier also reported bigger first-half losses for the six months to March 31st, but insisted it had been on track for a much-improved performance before the effects of coronavirus hit.
easyJet has today 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.
British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair have launched a combined legal action against what they have branded a “flawed” quarantine introduced by the government earlier this week.
