A new route from Belfast to Tenerife was announced by EasyJet. However, the flights to this route will be taking off from November 7.
Moreover, the airline has announced four more routes. It includes from Edinburgh to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura and from Glasgow to Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
However, because of the increase in routes the airline will be putting more flights on sale to the Canary Islands. As there has been a surge in customer demand for this route.
This includes routes to the islands from Belfast, and also from London Gatwick, London Luton, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, and Glasgow.
Quarantine Free List
The company announced these routes as the UK government made the announcement. That it is adding these destinations to the quarantine free list.
Over 180,000 additional seats to the Canary Islands will now be available up to the end of March 2021. And fares for this destination will start from £22.99.
The airline is also adding more seats to previously sold-out dates for October Half Term. However, this means families now have more opportunities to enjoy a last-minute getaway in the sun.
All easyJet customers can change their flights to a later date without a change fee up to 14 days ahead of departure.
Ali Gayward, UK Country Manager, easyJet said, “We welcome the announcement from the UK government that the Canary Islands have been added to the list of quarantine exempt countries for British travelers.”
“This will mean many of our customers will be able to take a winter sun break to these popular islands. Or reschedule a holiday that they’ve been unable to take this summer as a result of the last-minute changes to quarantine restrictions.”
In addition, he said, “Since the government’s announcement last night we’ve already seen a surge of demand for flights and holidays to the Canary Islands. We’ve seen a 500% increase day on day on searches so we know that there is customer demand. They want to travel and this demonstrates they will do so when travel restrictions are relaxed.”
Moreover, “We continue to encourage the Government to take a lead in moving to test. As well as the approval of new testing technologies, as soon as possible as effective testing is crucial to get people flying again.”
