However, what about this year? When will easyJet flights resume in 2020?

easyJet grounded its entire fleet on March 30 and has said no date is yet set for a return to the skies amid the current uncertainty.

An easyJet spokesman told Express.co.uk: “At this stage, there can be no certainty of the date for restarting commercial flights as this will depend on national travel restrictions and customer demand.

“We are working closely with local authorities and the relevant regulators to monitor the situation across Europe so that we remain informed of when restrictions could change and when flying can resume.

“We anticipate this will be a minimal schedule at first, which will vary by country.

“In the meantime, we are maintaining our full fleet of aircraft in a flight-ready condition and putting accelerated procedures in place to ensure flights can resume quickly and safely.

“We continue to work closely with EASA and other agencies to ensure we meet the necessary requirements for crew training as well as any additional health and safety measures that could be introduced to best protect our customers and crew, ensuring we are in compliance with any new ways of operating ready for when flying resumes.”
