With the arrival of school summer holidays across the UK, easyJet is warming up for the busiest weekend of the year as families prepare to jet off on a well-deserved holiday or reunite with friends and loved ones. The airline is preparing to carry nearly 10,000 passengers this weekend from Bristol Airport to Green and Amber destinations across Europe.
In total, there will be over 80 easyJet flights taking to the skies, connecting passengers from Bristol Airport to some of Europe's key summer hotspots. Popular flight destinations include Mallorca, Tenerife, Malaga, and Alicante in Spain, Athens and Corfu in Greece, Split in Croatia and Lisbon in Portugal. A recent survey showed that 61% of Brits say they are much more likely to want to travel abroad once they have been double jabbed with the research revealing that travel was a major reason in (47%) driving their decision to get vaccinated.
Great value deals are still to be had this summer with fares available for under £22.99* for those looking to get away on a long-awaited holiday. For holidaymakers seeking the sun, the sea breeze and taking revitalising swims in crystal-clear waters, flights from Bristol to destinations including Corfu, Alicante and Tenerife are still available this summer. For culture-seekers looking for a city break escape, easyJet is offering low fares from Bristol to Athens and Lisbon, too.
Ali Gayward, easyJet's UK Country Manager, commented:
'With schools breaking up for summer this weekend sees the busiest weekend so far this year and we are looking forward to taking as many people as we can on that long-awaited and well-deserved trip, or to reunite them with their loved ones.'
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its 'Protection Promise' which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee at any time up to two hours before departure, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline's network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet's network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer's travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet's highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
