easyJet has put four new domestic flights and more seats from Scotland on sale to serve demand for domestic travel. The flights will provide customers in Scotland with more opportunity to reconnect with friends and family across the country or book a long-awaited break and explore more of the UK this summer.
From July, easyJet will launch new flights from Inverness to Newquay in Cornwall, from Aberdeen to Bristol and Manchester and from Edinburgh to Manchester.
The airline has also put thousands of additional seats on sale across existing routes from Belfast International to Edinburgh from 2 July operating 22 times a week and to Glasgow from 2 July operating 20 times a week.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented: “We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so these new routes from Scotland should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network, providing customers with even more choice as we operate more seats on domestic flights from Scotland than any other airline.
“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely - to make this possible.
“We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”
Mark Beveridge, Operations Director at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “It is great to see easyJet growing its domestic offering and presence at Aberdeen International Airport with a Manchester and Bristol route.
“These routes strengthen our connectivity in the north-east of Scotland and bringing back business safely is a key priority at our airport.
“We have already this year seen the restart of the popular Gatwick route with easyJet in May which was warmly welcomed by our passengers and stakeholders.”
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee, at any time up to two hours before departure, or request a voucher providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
