First easyJet holidays’ summer customers take off today from Bristol Airport
Created: 1st Aug 2020
Today marks the day that easyJet holidays takes its first ever summer customers on holiday since the launch of the business in November last year and since travel restrictions and quarantine advice changed.
Customers will be jetting off from Bristol Airport to enjoy holidays to the likes of Dalaman and Zakynthos. When customers arrive on holiday there will be local gifts to enjoy courtesy of easyJet holidays and their destination partners to celebrate the first arrivals.
To help support and prepare customers for what to expect on holiday in these times, easyJet holidays has created a customer video and provided detailed information pages on its website – a Covid-19 response and a safety and wellbeing centre.
Matt Callaghan, Customer Director at easyJet holidays said: “This is a really big moment for us and it is hugely exciting to be taking our first customers away this summer. We know how important holidays are to us all and we also recognise that for many a holiday this year feels even more significant. We’ve made a series of commitments and put in a number of steps to help ensure customers can have a safe and enjoyable holiday. We’d also like to say a huge thank you to all of our partners for the part they have played in getting ready for today.”
Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport said: “We are delighted to see the return of easyJet holidays to Bristol Airport today opening up even more opportunities and providing a wider choice of destinations for customers in the region. Holidays and a trip away are known to benefit personal wellbeing and never has a time been more significantly important in providing customers the opportunities of enjoying a well-earned holiday and some relaxing time away. As we see the number of destinations increase from Bristol Airport it becomes even more important to ensure our customers feel safe. We are confident we have the measures in place with Safe journeys start here, our three step plan, Get ready> Stay safe> Let’s travel providing the extra Covid measures to facilitate safe travel and allow customers to fly with confidence.”
Today also marks the day that the new comic book inspired face masks for children will start to be available on easyJet flights. The masks, designed by Irish artist Will Sliney, best known for his work on Marvel comics Spider-Man and Star Wars, are just one element of the new measures the airline has introduced on flights to help ensure the safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew onboard.
easyJet holidays has great value deals on a range of holidays bookable all the way through to October next year. All holidays include 23kg of luggage per person, with transfers included on beach holidays.
