"We are delighted to have launched our first flight from Newquay to Birmingham on our new twice weekly service for the summer. We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or explore more of the UK, so this new route will prove popular for customers in both Newquay and the Midlands and further strengthens our UK domestic network, providing customers with great value fares and even more choice this summer."
Pete Downes, Managing Director at Cornwall Airport Newquay, commented:
“Birmingham has been one of our most requested routes in recent months, so we are delighted to today welcome the inaugural service of EasyJet’s newest route connecting Cornwall to the Midlands. This route will serve not only the inbound leisure passengers looking for a quicker and more relaxing way to get to Cornwall, but also those visiting friends and family or looking to travel between Cornwall and Birmingham for business or leisure as the country begins to open up again.”
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, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline’s network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet’s network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer’s travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
