Popular airline EasyJet has announced flights to Europe will restart from next week with popular destinations back on the cards for holidaymakers.
EasyJet will resume international flights just days after restarting domestic flights in the UK as the coronavirus lockdown eases.
Flights to tourist hotspots including Greece, Portugal and Croatia will be back in business from London and regional airports such as Bristol, Birmingham, Newcastle and Manchester.
Across the UK 14 airports will resume the low-cost airline flights.
Brits can also look forward to holidaying in France, Italy, Canary Islands and the Balearics.
On June 15 the budget airline resumed flights for the first time since its last three months ago.
It announced new rules for the return of domestic flights, all passengers and cabin crew stuff are required to wear masks when travelling with the airline.
There will be no food served on board and passengers will be offered hand sanitiser and wipes to stop the spread of coronavirus.
And the airline has promised that planes will be regularly cleaned in-between services as well as disinfected.
Robert Carey, Chief Commercial and Strategy Officer commented: “We are really pleased to be relaunching even more of our flights from 1 July and starting to get customers away on their much-needed summer holidays.”
He added: “Of course, the safety and wellbeing of our customers and crew remains our highest priority. This is why we have implemented a number of measures enhancing safety at each part of the journey from disinfecting the aircraft to requiring customers and crew to wear masks.
“These measures will remain in place for as long as is needed to ensure customers and crew are able to fly safely as the world continues to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.”
EasyJet plans to fly around 50% of its 1022 routes in July increasing to around 75% in August, although with a lower frequency of flights equating to around 30% of normal July to September capacity.
New safety measures also include using an automated bag drop to check in hold luggage with screens in place at check in desks and at airports where auto bag drop is not available.
Every aircraft will be subject to a daily disinfection process which provides surface protection from viruses that lasts for at least 24 hours.
