Easyjet cuts flights to Greek Islands after U.K. announced strict restrictions

Published on : Friday, September 11, 2020

Easyjet is reducing the number of flights to the Greek islands after the UK government announced strict new quarantine restrictions. Those who are travelling to the islands of Mykonos, Crete, Santorini, Zante, Lesvos, Tinos and Serifos must quarantine for two weeks when back in the UK from today.

Last month, easyJet announced plans to resume 1,000 flights a day, although this has been hindered by last-minute travel changes.

They have already been forced to cancel holidays to Spain, as well as France, Malta and the Netherlands due to quarantine restrictions enforced.

The airline explained in a statement that they would be operating at less than 40 per cent of its planned capacity.

They said that in response to this reduced demand for travel. easyJet now expects to fly slightly less than the 40 per cent of planned capacity for Q4 2020 which was highlighted at our Q3 trading update.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren added, in relation to the Greece rules that following the imposition of additional quarantine restrictions to seven Greek islands and the continued uncertainty this brings for customers, demand is now likely to be further impacted and therefore lower than previously anticipated.

They know that the customers of easyjet are as frustrated as they are with the unpredictable travel and quarantine restrictions.
