easyJet back to full service - Passengers to return home earlier than expected


easyJet, the UK's largest airline, had operated a full schedule of 1,100 flights on Thursday the 22nd of April with over 150,000 seats, following a nearly normal schedule. The company had also offered 13 additional rescue flights to destinations where large numbers of customers are stranded.



The airline expects that seats will be available on most flights for the coming days as passengers with reservations have made alternate arrangements. Passengers who are stranded abroad can therefore return home earlier than expected by coming to the airport.

To ensure that customers can return home swiftly, easyJet has contacted stranded passengers to ask them to come to the airport where they will be booked on the next available flight.


easyJet Chief Executive Andy Harrison said: "We won't rest until our passengers are home. With all the additional flights and stand-by measures in place we believe that we can bring passengers home even quicker than expected. I would like to thank our passengers for their patience and understanding."
