Luton Airport, which has remained open throughout the pandemic, has seen the return of easyJet. 

The airline, whose headquarters are at the site, will this week offer single rotations for today (Monday 22 February) to Belfast International, Edinburgh and Glasgow, airports followed by a similar programme on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.  All are single rotations.

Wizz continues with an extensive schedule with 20 departures last Friday.

At Gatwick easyJet has a selection of limited destinations including the three airports above plus Alicante, Geneva, Gibraltar and Tenerife.

Ali Gayward, of easyJet, said: “We know that people want to travel as soon as they can and as soon as it is safe to do so and so we want to ensure they have even more destinations to choose from when making a booking for this summer.

“And while we remain optimistic for summer travel, given the successful rollout of the vaccination programme which will be an important trigger for the Government to begin to unwind some restrictions, our Protection Promise means that customers can book with confidence knowing that if they are unable to travel or their plans change so can their flights or holiday. And unlike other airlines we will offer customers refunds if they are impacted by a travel ban, even if their flight is not cancelled, which is industry leading.

“In the meantime, we continue to focus on offering a network of the most attractive destinations and ensuring we will be ready to ramp up our flights so we can take our customers away to see friends and family or on long-awaited holiday breaks when they can safely take to the skies again.”
