easyJet’s UK Country Manager, Ali Gayward, stated:

“We are delighted to be adding even more seats to our summer 2022 schedule, so that we can provide our customers in the UK with even more choice to enjoy to some of Europe’s best ski, beach, and city destinations, just in time to book an Easter break to look forward to.”


easyJet, which currently has 443 routes to over 100 destinations, carried more than 96 million passengers in 2019. With the effects of Covid-19 that came in place soon after, resulting in cancellations and lockdowns, EasyJet is now eager to offer Brits deserving of a getaway cheap ticket prices. Gayward added:

“We know that so many people have missed being able to holiday over the last two years and so it is a priority for many UK consumers. With low fares from just £20.99, hundreds of fantastic destinations to choose from, and many no longer requiring testing restrictions, now is a great time to book with EasyJet.

We are excited about our plans for next summer, which should see us return to near 2019 levels of flying and we can’t wait to welcome our customers back onboard.”
