easyJet has confirmed it will be relaunching more flights from Bristol from 1 July on both domestic and international routes. easyJet will operate 36 routes in July and 57 in August from Bristol to destinations across the airline’s European network.
On 15 June a small number of domestic flights began operating from Bristol for the first time since the airline grounded its fleet at the end of March as a result of Covid-19. From 1 July some international flights will now also resume from Bristol on routes to a variety of city and beach destinations including the city staples of Paris, Berlin and Madrid; Spanish favourites Alicante, Malaga and Barcelona as well as the Balearics and Canary Islands; and more popular beach destinations across Greece, Portugal, Italy and Croatia – all with great value fares still available.
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. During the lockdown period the fleet of aircraft has been maintained in a flight ready condition to enable the airline to resume flights at the right time.
A new range of additional measures are in place to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew onboard. These include enhanced aircraft disinfection for easyJet aircraft; customers, cabin crew and ground crew will be required to wear masks; there will also initially be no food service onboard flights, all of which operate on a short-haul network. The measures have been implemented in consultation with aviation authorities ICAO and EASA, and in line with relevant national authorities and medical advice through the airline’s chief medical adviser.
