The savings will apply to flights between 25 October 2020 and 28 February 2021.
easyJet said in a statement today: “The airline’s sale, which goes live today, will allow many customers who have had their recent travel plans disrupted even more choice of dates to move their flights to with no change fee including Christmas and February half term breaks.
“Customers whose easyJet holidays have been impacted can also book a new winter holiday from Thursday 19 March taking advantage of the exceptional value available across hundreds of destinations.”
The announcement follows yesterday’s FCO announcement that Brits should avoid all but essential travel for the next 30 days.
Over 147,000 flights are set to take place across easyJet’s network between 25 October 2020 and 28 February 2021, providing over 9 million seats for passengers to organise a half term family break, catch some winter sun or head off on ski and city breaks.
Of these, more than 5 million seats are now on sale across 78,000 flights to and from the UK.
Flights are available for customers to book now at www.easyJet.com with more details to follow on the easyJet holidays sale on Thursday.
Robert Carey, easyJet Chief Commercial Officer said: “We’ve taken the decision to put our flights for the winter season on sale today in order to support customers as much as possible during this time.
“For the first time flights will also go on sale with a flat fee of £29.99 including taxes and charges.
“Customers are also able to change their existing plans should they need to, or book a new break, with the reassurance that a change fee will not be applied.”
“To further assist customers who have had their travel plans affected easyJet has waived the change fee associated with changing their flights.
“All customers are now able to change the dates of their upcoming flights to any time before February 2021.
