EasyJet grounds fleet

Carrier halts operations

EasyJet’s entire fleet of aircraft has been fully grounded due to the unprecedented travel restrictions introduced in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We will continue to work with government bodies to operate additional rescue flights as requested,” the airline said.

“We will continuously evaluate the situation based on regulations and demand, and will update the market when we have a view.

“We continue to take every action to remove cost and non-critical expenditure from the business at every level in order to help mitigate the impact from the coronavirus. The grounding of aircraft removes significant cost.”
