EasyJet is in a bullish mood regarding Gatwick and for the summer is adding four new aircraft, further routes and more frequencies. However with the present lockdown there is over the next few weeks a severe cutback of flights.
The airline will offer 107 destinations across 28 countries from next summer.
New destinations include Aberdeen (Scotland), Bilbao (Spain) and Cagliari (Italy), all of which are now on sale, plus increased flying on existing domestic and international routes.#####
The airline recently reported growing customer confidence to make travel plans for next spring and summer after experiencing a significant increase in demand for flights and holidays.
Johan Lundgren, CEO of easyJet, said: “Returning customer momentum has been supported by the welcome news of the vaccination rollout, which will enable normal life to resume; including travelling again for work, to visit friends and family, or for a much-needed holiday.
“Thanks to the decisive actions we have taken throughout 2020 we are ready to bounce back and capture demand as it returns. As the largest airline at Gatwick, easyJet’s unrivalled network of major airports, friendly service and great value mean customers will choose us when they are able to return to the skies.”
Stewart Wingate, CEO of Gatwick Airport, said: “With the roll out of testing, and also the vaccine, we are starting to see an increased demand for air travel as passenger confidence grows. This good news will also help kick-start the recovery of the local area, which has been hit particularly hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.”
