easyJet is celebrating launching the first flights on two new domestic summer routes from Bristol, providing customers in the south west of England with key connectivity across the UK and more opportunity to reconnect with friends and family across the country or book a long-awaited break to explore more of the UK this summer.
The first flight from Bristol to Aberdeen takes off today at 17:00 and is now operating up to four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays with fares starting from £24.99*. Customers in the region can now enjoy a convenient direct connection to the beautiful coastlines, idyllic seaside towns, rugged cliffs and sandy bays that north east Scotland has to offer.
Flights from Bristol Airport to Jersey will also be taking off for the first time on Saturday 10 July at 07:00, operating three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with fares starting from £14.99*. Known for its beaches, cliffside walking trails, inland valleys and historic castles, customers can now enjoy a direct connection to the sunny domestic destination.
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from some of the most flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now for later this year with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said:
“We are delighted to be celebrating the launch of our first flights from Bristol Airport to Aberdeen and Jersey for the first time. These routes further strengthen our network from Bristol and provide more connectivity for our customers whether they are reuniting with loved ones, connecting for business, or want to explore more of the UK this summer.
“We are proud to be the largest airline in Bristol and remain committed to offering customers great value fares and more choice when they fly with us."
Dave Lees, CEO, Bristol Airport said:
“We are delighted to welcome customers to easyJet’s services to Jersey and Aberdeen this weekend. Connectivity with the rest of the UK is extremely important and easyJet being our largest based airline has been integral to unlocking these key air links. We will continue to work with easyJet, enhancing and developing the route network for the future.
“The routes offer improved choice and flexibility to customers wishing to travel within the UK and provides surety and confidence to customers when arranging the long-awaited family visit, a well-deserved holiday or business trip.
“Safety and security of our customers and colleagues remains our key priority and is at the forefront of all planning and preparations we have in place for customers. We will continue to work closely with airlines, the government, Department for Transport and Public Health England on the latest information as it becomes available.”
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from industry leading flexible booking policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now with confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee at any time up to two hours before departure, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline’s network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet’s network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer’s travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
