With uncertainty still surrounding holidays abroad from the UK this summer, the carrier highlighted its Protection Promise, which includes a refund guarantee for flights or holidays if they are cancelled, as well as a full refund for holidays if customers change their minds up to 28 days before departure.

Ali Gayward, United Kingdom Country Manager, easyJet, said:

We are pleased to announce more connectivity to Birmingham today in flying to popular beach destinations and getting customers away on their much-needed summer holiday across Europe this year. We believe that a framework can be put in place for the safe reopening of travel and a strong summer, and we are currently focused on working with the UK Government Travel Task Force in the coming days and weeks. We are hopeful that progress will continue to be made with the vaccination programmes in Europe, with several countries in Europe having indicated they will be welcoming British tourists this summer. We remain of the view that international travel can restart and that, with the right framework in place, restrictions can be safely and progressively reduced and in some cases removed by mid-summer for key destinations. We’ve kept our fleet in a flight-ready mode so we are ready and able to ramp up our services quickly and increase our capacity where we see increased demand for the summer.
