The airlines will operate with a much-reduced network of mainly domestic flights from mid-June when many intra-EU barriers are due to be removed.
Ten European airports are in the UK such as Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Inverness, the Isle of Man, Liverpool and Newcastle, also seven French airports such as Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Nantes, Nice, Paris CDG and Toulouse, then Barcelona, Geneva, and the two biggest Portuguese cities, Lisbon and Porto will also be served with easyJet. EasyJet will ask the passengers and crew to wear masks then the aircraft will make cleaning and disinfection procedures.
The easyJet chief executive, Johan Lundgren, said: “These are small and carefully planned steps that we are taking to resume operations. 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.”
Not only easyJet, Ryanair and British Airways will continue to fly throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, though at a much-reduced scale. They plan to restart operation in July even though UK government quarantine plans can affect the decisions.
