EasyJet Cuts Its Flight Schedule Due to Uncertainty Surrounding Travel Advice. Airline EasyJet will operate fewer flights in the fourth quarter than it initially expected.
The budget flyer notices that demand for tickets is lagging due to the continually changing travel restrictions in Europe and quarantine obligations for travellers in the United Kingdom.
EasyJet previously expected to use 40 percent of its flight capacity in the last three months of the year, but now reports that this is likely to be “slightly lower”.
The British airline is further cutting its flight schedule so that no losses are incurred on flights that do depart.
Among other things, people travelling from the Netherlands to the United Kingdom are obliged to go into quarantine for 14 days after arrival.
EasyJet also points out that famous Greek holiday islands were removed from a British exception list this week for mandatory self-isolation.
