EasyJet will resume flights from airports in Scotland next month, with passengers and crew expected to wear masks.

The airline will continue a small number of mainly domestic flights from June 15, serving Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness airports.

Flights will also resume at Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle and Belfast airports.

The only international route from the UK will be between Gatwick and Nice, France.

The airline said it was “introducing new measures to help ensure safety and wellbeing, including enhanced aircraft cleaning and disinfection and requirement for passengers and crew to wear masks”.

Further routes will be confirmed “over the coming weeks” as demand increases and coronavirus lockdown measures across Europe are relaxed, the airline said.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren said: “I am really pleased that we will be returning to flying in the middle of June.

“These are small and carefully planned steps that we are taking to gradually resume operations.

“We will continue to closely monitor the situation across Europe so that, when more restrictions are lifted, the schedule will continue to build over time to match demand, while also ensuring we are operating efficiently and on routes that our customers want.”

EasyJet had grounded its entire fleet of aircraft due to the coronavirus pandemic at the end of March.
