EasyJet will ground entire fleet from Monday onwards NOW

-

Due to travel restrictions due to the coronavirus outbreak, easyJet will ground the entire fleet as of Monday. That makes the British price fighter, which also has a base at Schiphol, announced on Monday.

The group speaks of “unprecedented travel restrictions imposed by countries in response to the corona virus and the implementation of lockdowns in many European countries”. All flights are suspended until further notice.

In recent days, easyJet, like many other airlines, has been busy retrieving travelers from countries where they were stranded. According to the company, this involved more than 45,000 travelers.

The last of those so-called repatriation flights was conducted on Sunday. “We continue to work with governments to conduct additional rescue flights at their request,” the easyJet said.

The group says it is constantly working to limit costs and expenses in order to limit the financial impact of the corona virus as much as possible. “Keeping our fleet on the ground is a significant cost saver.”

The coronavirus in short

  • The coronavirus mainly spreads from person to person via sneezing and cough drops. The chance of becoming infected through surfaces such as door handles is small. This chance decreases if you wash your hands often.
  • You can considerably reduce the chance of spreading by keeping at least 1.5 meters away from others.
  • An infected person infects two to three others on average. Precautions are necessary to contain this.
  • The vast majority of patients have mild (flu-like) complaints.
  • Almost all deaths involve the elderly or other vulnerable persons, such as heart, lung or diabetes patients. If everyone complies with the measures, this reduces their risks.
  • Read here what precautions you should take.
