To ensure the health and safety of guests and team members, easyJet has implemented enhanced aircraft cleaning and disinfection protocols and will require customers and crew to wear masks. Initially, onboard food service won’t be available on short-haul flights. In Thursday’s announcement, easyJet’s CEO, Johan Lundgren said,
“I am really pleased that we will resume some flying in the middle of June. These are small and carefully planned steps that we are taking to 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 to fly. The safety and wellbeing of our customers and crew remains our highest priority which is why we are implementing a number of measures enhancing safety at each part of the journey from disinfecting the aircraft to requiring customers and crew to wear face masks. These measures will remain in place for as long as needed to ensure customers and crew are able to fly safely as the world continues to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. We look forward to welcoming our customers back onboard in June.”
