Easyjet Boosts Domestic Flights To Meet Staycation Demand

easyJet adds two new domestic flights to its roster this month, boosting links between Manchester and Scotland.

Flights to Aberdeen take off 9 July, operating four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with fares starting from £22.99. The flight to Edinburgh launches the same day, operating four times a week on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays with fares starting from £30.99.

The airline has also put over 40,000 additional seats on sale on its existing route from Belfast International to Manchester from 9 July, which will now operate 27 times a week.

The new routes will provide more opportunity to reconnect those in Manchester with friends and family or book a long-awaited break and explore more of Scotland this summer.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said:"These new routes from Manchester should prove popular and will further strengthen our domestic network providing customers with even more choice.

“We also know it is important to our customers to be reunited with loved ones overseas so we continue to urge the UK government to add more countries to the Green list – which can be done safely - to make this possible.

“We continue to have some of the most flexible policies currently in place so customers can book with confidence and change their plans if they need to, making travel as easy as possible this summer.”

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport
... added:“We welcome easyJet’s announcement of these two new routes, in addition to the expansion of the airline’s Belfast service.

“This will enhance the choice on offer for passengers, is great for connectivity between Manchester and the rest of the UK, and in time, will also give travellers in Scotland and Northern Ireland improved access to onward connections from Manchester to hundreds of destinations internationally.

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, or request a voucher providing even more last-minute flexibility.
