Flight and holiday bookings soar after roadmap plans released

The boss of easy Jet is confident flights to Spain will open up shortly with the rest of Europe

“I would expect that almost all major European countries, that by the time it comes to travel reopening, that most countries in Europe should be in that category,” the boss of Easy Jet said this morning.

Asked by a reporter if he thought Spain will be on the green light list, he simply replied “YES”

EasyJet’s chief executive Johan Lundgren announced his confidence this morning whilst urging the British government to get on with the traffic light system announcement, saying that the big question its customers were asking was where they could go.

The airline boss also repeated criticism of the UK’s plan to make PCR tests for COVID-19 a requirement for travel to green list countries, saying the high cost of tests could dampen demand.

Lundgren went onto say it was too early to forecast July capacity, noting that customer booking patterns were much later this year. But he said the airline was ready to ramp up flying quickly and had the flexibility to change its schedule depending on changing restrictions.
