EasyJet has announced plans to step up the flight program in the coming weeks.
It plans to operate on half of the 1,022 routes in July and 75% in August.
Flights will have a lower frequency than normal, which means that the airline will operate at around 30% of its normal capacity between July and September.
It comes as comic book inspired face mask covers that are handed over to child passengers to ease fears about an airline’s new flight rules.
EasyJet has announced that it will make thousands of items available on selected routes when it restarts operations on June 15.
The covers have lion and pilot designs and should be worn over the top of a young traveler’s face mask.
EasyJet’s requirement to wear a face mask at airports and on airplanes is part of a series of new safety and hygiene measures that will take effect as soon as flights are resumed.
No food is sold during flights, improved aircraft cleaning and disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer.
Captain David Morgan, easyJet’s director of flight operations, said, “We’ve teamed up with a comic illustrator to create some custom kids’ masks, knowing that the airport environment can feel different and potentially discouraging for younger travelers. flying initially resumes.
“So we hope these face mask covers help kids fly with us over the summer and this will make things a little easier for parents too.”
The face mask covers were designed by Irish illustrator Will Sliney, who has worked on Spider-Man and Star Wars comics.
He said, “Flying with face masks is going to be a new experience for everyone, especially young children, so I hope these fun designs inspired by cartoon characters help kids wear their masks on board.
“I used a combination of a lion animal and a futuristic pilot to create a set of mask covers to bring out the inner superhero in all young kites.”
EasyJet’s original schedule mainly includes domestic flights in the UK and France.
Further routes will be confirmed “in the coming weeks” as demand increases and coronavirus locking measures are relaxed across Europe, the airline said.
