Johan Lundgren, CEO, easyJet, said:

We really want to get back to what we do best and connect people across Europe so we welcome these additions to the Green list and in response we have put over fifty thousand more seats on sale to new and existing routes to Green destinations. This includes brand new routes from Bristol and Luton to Malta, meaning we now have around one million seats operating to current European Green list destinations this summer. And with two thirds of UK adults expected to be double jabbed by 19 July, now is the time to let British citizens take advantage of the success of the vaccination programme so we urge the Government to move quickly to remove quarantine and testing for fully vaccinated people travelling from Amber and Green countries. This is overdue and unless testing is also removed flying could become the preserve of the rich again. easyJet is ready and able to ramp up and we look forward playing our part in reuniting people with their loved ones or take them on a well-deserved break.

The airline has also put thousands of additional seats from the UK to the Balearic Islands this summer season.

easyJet is now operating to Malta up to 18 times a week this summer from 4 UK airports – London Gatwick, London Luton, Bristol, Manchester.

easyJet is operating to Palma this summer up to 82-times-a-week from 8 UK airports – London Gatwick, London Luton, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool.

The carrier is operating 25-flights-a-week to Menorca this summer from 4 UK airports – Bristol, London Gatwick, London Luton, Manchester.

easyJet is operating to Ibiza up to 40-times-a-week this summer from five UK airports – London Gatwick, Bristol, Belfast, London Luton, Manchester.

Meanwhile, easyJet recently announced 12 new domestic routes in the United Kingdom in order to fill the void left after the collapse of Stobart Air.
