Easyjet set to resume flights in France from June 15th

Budget airline Easyjet has announced that it intends to resume flights in France and the UK from June 15th.

The company, which has had virtually all of its planes grounded since March, announced that it intends to resume some flights from June 15th.

In a statement the firm said that the resumed routes would be “mainly domestic flights in the UK and France”.

“A small number of flights will restart on routes where we believe there is sufficient demand to allow profitable flights,” the statement added.

The situation in international travel remains unclear, with entry into France currently heavily restricted.

Travel into France is allowed for essential purposes only and everyone needs an international travel certificate.

June 15th is the date that some European countries, including Germany, have committed to reopening their borders but France has been a little more cautious and says only that the situation will be reviewed before then.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told French radio station LCI: “I think that progressively from June 15th, we will be able to start a generalised easing [of European border controls], at least that is what I hope.”

European countries are generally planning to open up borders within Europe first and France remains closed to non-essential travel from outside Europe “until further notice”.

Bosses from British Airways and Ryanair have previously spoken of resuming flights from July, if conditions allow.
