EasyJet launches 50,000 extra seats to new green list countries

It is now one of the leading UK carriers to European green list destinations 

EasyJet has put more than 50,000 extra seats on sale to new and existing green list destinations. The airline will also launch routes to Malta from Bristol and Luton next month.  

This announcement follows the UK government’s recent confirmation that Malta and the Balearics Islands will join the approved list for international travel.

The operator has already partnered with testing firms across Europe to enable customers to access convenient and affordable testing, including PCR tests from £60. 

“We really want to get back to what we do best and connect people across Europe so we welcome these additions to the green list and in response we have put over fifty thousand more seats on sale to new and existing routes to green destinations,” said Johan Lundgren, CEO of easyjet. “This includes brand new routes from Bristol and Luton to Malta, meaning we now have around one million seats operating to current European green list destinations this summer.” 

He added: “And with two thirds of UK adults expected to be double jabbed by 19 July, now is the time to let British citizens take advantage of the success of the vaccination programme so we urge the Government to move quickly to remove quarantine and testing for fully vaccinated people travelling from amber and green countries. This is overdue and unless testing is also removed flying could become the preserve of the rich again.”
