Given the restrictions still in place between some countries and a UK plan to bring in a 14-day quarantine for arrivals from overseas, easyJet's focus will be on internal flights from Gatwick, Bristol, Edinburgh and Belfast in the United Kingdom, and from Nice, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Toulouse in France.

The airline has today (21 May) confirmed it will begin flying a number of domestic routes, and has introduced new measures to ensure passenger safety.

A spokesman said: "We are confident the appropriate and necessary measures are in place at Hial airports to enable a gradual resumption of some scheduled flights".

There will also be a minimal number of global routes from Geneva.

Customers, cabin and ground crew will be required to wear masks.


A number of other airlines have announced tentative plans to ramp up their operations from the skeleton schedules now being used due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Air France-KLM, Lufthansa and Wizz have all made masks mandatory and the CEO of Aer Lingus and British Airways owner IAG Willie Walsh has said he supports the idea.

Johan Lundgren, easyJet's chief executive, added: "I am really pleased that we will be returning to flying in the middle of June".

"We will continue to closely monitor the situation across Europe so that when more restrictions are lifted the schedule will continue to build over time to match demand, while also ensuring we are operating efficiently and on routes that our customers want".

Hial said it had introduced new processes, including cleaning regimes and social distancing procedures, to help limit the spread of infection and protect the health and wellbeing of staff and passengers.

EasyJet admitted on Tuesday that nine million of its passengers had their email addresses and travel details exposed in a "highly sophisticated".
