easyJet has put two new domestic flights and more seats from Birmingham on sale to serve the demand for domestic travel. The flights will provide customers in the Midlands with more opportunity to reconnect with friends and family across the country or book a long-awaited break and explore more of the UK this summer.
The airline has also put thousands of additional seats on sale on its existing route from Birmingham to Belfast International from 3 July, operating six times a week.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, commented:
“We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or have more opportunity to explore the UK so the new routes from Birmingham should prove popular and will further strengthen our UK domestic network providing customers with even more choice.
“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely – to make this possible.
“We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”
Nick Barton, CEO of Birmingham Airport said:
“It is great news that easyJet is offering twice-weekly flights to Jersey and Newquay from Birmingham Airport for summer 2021. Newquay and Jersey do not fall under the government traffic light system as they are both classed as domestic within the common travel area, giving ease and flexibility for those needing to holiday or travel for business. These domestic summer sun routes complement the existing Belfast International, Edinburgh and Glasgow services that easyJet currently offers from Birmingham and we’re pleased that this valued airline customer is expanding its operation for Midlanders.”
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, or request a voucher 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.
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.
